As part of the US States collection, I am introducing patterns for Texas, Virginia, and South Carolina. When included with my Washington and Germany blocks, these states represent our duty stations as we have moved throughout my husband's military career. Many of our friends have signs, canvases, or other types of wall hangings showing their various duty stations, and my plan is to create a small quilt to commemorate all of our surrogate states to display in our final house. I plan to use the larger Germany block as a center block and the rest of the states as cornerstones, although I'm not yet sure what I am going to do with the sashing. And I definitely want to make sure we won't be adding Washington, DC to the list before assembling the quilt, LOL!
It will be a while before I get to these myself, so in the meantime I am looking for testers. The blocks are sized at 10" and fall on the slightly more complicated side to make sure I could capture as many details as possible. Let me know if you are interested!
