    I have painted 50 state bird blocks. They are 10" square. Does anyone have a suggestion as how to arrange them in a quilt?
    I would appreciate some ideas.
    Thanks

    Hello there,
    I made a quilt like this, for my
    Mom a few years ago. The birds
    were painted on a white back
    ground, so I sashed them together
    with red fabric. It turned out nicely.
    Anyway, she is happy with it!!
    :D :D :D :D :D

    Sounds quite pretty. How many in a row, how many rows? Do you have a picture?

    50 does not divide well except 5X10 (which is not a good proportion)

    6x8 = 48 and you can add the remaining two in the border or the back.
    if you would prefer a square look, then 7x7 =49 and that leaves one. Again the remainder can go in the border or on the back. On the back, you could make it the bird of YOUR state and incorporate it into the label.

    Just a thought.

    Thank you very much. I think I know how I'll put it together! I really like the one that has the 6 star blocks added in.
