    I am having a senior moment and I don't remember if I posted a link for all the State Blocks that somebody wanted and I can't find the topic either.....so be kind hahahhaa

    http://www.bellaonline.com/subjects/7939.asp

    All the state blocks are listed here with pattern and the New York block is beautiful. I recall someone was looking for a flag pattern some time ago and this is beautiful...

    If you have block base you can type the name in and print the size you want.

    I seem to remember now that I did post that or am I dreaming hahahahhaah

    Thank you, Rosy--that was me. I'm looking for the pattern called Covering America. You've been a great help-thanks.

    I have senior, blonde moments so I understand LOL.

    I found this link and that book looks so great. If you click on "details" at the top of the book it will tell you the requirements then you can go to the previous link and download all the blocks with instructions.

    That's it!! That's the book I'm looking for!! Oh thank you-I was starting to think I imagined it. It must have been in an email ad that I got and deleted. I can't believe you found it.

    I'm going to check some sites (this one says out of stock) and order it before I "misplace" this info again.

    Thank you so much!!

    If you posted before, I missed it. I've lived in a lot of states, so it would be fun to make a block for each state I lived and see what comes up.

    Thank you for your searching. That takes more time than a senior moment.

    Thanks again, Rosy. I bookmarked the site and I'll start downloading them a few at a time. I'm still making templates for the FWS-up to block 70. I've never been into sampler quilts but these 2 are great. I'm not sure how I'll put together 2 quilts with all these blocks. Sure hope I don't end up with 200 potholders LOL!!

    Thanks again for all your help. I searched different sites but never came up with one with all the blocks in one place like you did.

    You're welcome Jan. Here is a tip or erratta. When I have to do a lot of one thing like templates (very few lol) or cut hundreds of strips for a project (log cabin). I never do a bunch, because, very likely, like you mentioned, they might become pot holders lol.

    I find I loose interest in some things. So I always just cut for a few...two or three templates, make those and then see if I want to go on. Same with the strips, I cut for a few and this way I am not looking at alllllll those strips to be sewed.

    This way I don't waste a lot of fabric and time. With My DEar Jane's and FW, I did loose interest but the few I did make, found themselves into a quilt with other blocks I had made long ago, so no waste there and I had just cut for the one I did, one at a time lol.

    I have about twenty five of the blocks completed in the Covering America book. I checked with the site you mentioned because I am having a problem with the Maine block but the block on the site is not the same block in the book. I am making two of each block so I can have two quilts to give to my daughters-in-law for Christmas. These are not easy blocks. I completed 111 of the Farmer's Wife Quilt for my daughter for last Christmas but the Covering America blocks seem to be harder. I know this is an old thread but I thought I would add my two cents. Thanks,
