One benefit to traveling in a country as large as the United States of America is that, in one road trip, you can see a little bit of every natural wonder. The U.S. is home to forests, deserts, lakes, oceans, mountains, valleys, and everything in between. 50 States Quilt Blocks has one pattern for every state. Tell the tale of your grand road trip in a tradition as old as the nation itself–the quilt.
Co-authors Rita Weiss and Linda Causee take the most recognizable facet of each state in the union and translate it into fabric and thread. Between them, these ladies have written and edited hundreds of books on sewing. 50 States Quilt Blocks features a mix of centuries-old patterns and brand new designs.
Quilting is an art form that has been passed down from generation to generation. Perhaps it's the stunning combination of artistry and function that makes quilting a treasured American pastime. Sewists have been creating state quilt blocks for many years, but that's no reason to rest on our laurels! Gain new appreciation for your home state with a block that speaks to its natural beauty (Arizona Cactus Flower), its history (Maryland Bell), or its architecture (New York Empire State).
50 States Quilt Blocks includes detailed instructions for each block and comes with a CD that allows quilters to print templates in five standard block sizes (4.5, 6, 9, 12, and 15 inches). You'll also find basic quilting tips and techniques in case you need a refresher course. Make an entire project devoted to one state, or mix it up with states that you've visited or would one day like to see. Better yet, take your finished quilt on the road with you from sea to shining sea!
