    If you search Google Images for state bird quilt you'll get pages and pages of examples...vintage blocks, new blocks, sashed, not sashed, cornerstones, no cornerstones, on point, lots of color options, you name it!

    I did not do the birds but did the state flowers. Have not found a way to attach picture with my ipad. That was a great buy!

    I am picturing them on point and think that would look great. That is a great find no matter how you sew them together.

    I made the state flower quilt, started it in 1948,then life got busy and wasn't finished for many years. I alternated the embrodered blocks with a plain color and we wore the quilt out using it. Mine had 48 squares and I ran out of blue floss when I got to the very last square. I used blue for the names of each state.
    How many blocks did you get? You will be able to tell the age if it it 48. My transfers came from Aunt Martha and I believe they are available again.

    The embroidery patterns were in Workbasket magazine in the 40's. They would publish one per month. I used to have those magazines. Wish I would have kept them. I think they had the state flowers also. And they did a series of pieced state blocks.

    A NY friend sends me sets of these blocks periodically. I simply set them alphabetically in rows with 2" sashings plus cornerstones, add one or more
    borders, then machine quilt. Beautiful!

    How lucky you were, what a great find. I remember my grandmother had a few, and made table runners

    Try Googling "state bird quilt" and then click on "images". Found quite a few photos of beautiful quilts!
