This pattern is very close to my heart because my husband and I are both Washingtonians born and bred. As much as I am enjoying our travels around the US and now around Europe thanks to the military family life, I always ache for my beloved PNW and its oceans, mountains, and green forests.
Part of the US States collection, this block stitches up at 10" and is a relatively simple block for any experienced piecer. A huge apology to all the islands that weren't represented here; they would have made the block nearly impossible to stitch!
I ultimately plan to stitch this one up so if I get to it before a tester is found, it will be up in the shop then. If you are interested in speeding up the process by testing for me, let me know. I'm also happy to take suggestions for other states that you would like to see join Washington in the lineup. I am tentatively thinking of combining the Germany block with our other duty stations to create a quilt symbolizing our military life, which would put Virginia, Texas, and South Carolina on the docket first. But if there is something special you are looking for I'm happy to draft it up!
