I have the privilege of attending a class on applique taught by Judy and Diane. This is the book we'll be using, Baltimore Bouquets by Mimi Dietrich.
That book is out of print, but Amazon had some for sale. This exemplar even came from within Germany. The pages are yellowed a bit, but it seems to be in marvelous condition for a 20 year old book. The only marking inside the book is a comment on the inside cover: "Dicker Stengel - ca. 3 1/2 cm, halb bügeln."
We'll see if I need to make the thick stem 3 1/2 cm wide. :)
What I don't know yet is if there have been any corrections to the book.
Anyway, I'm looking forward to the class, and I've been looking at different patterns for my project. The pattern that looks most promising at the moment is from Pearl Pereira, her Virginia Bouquet.
