I remember seeing one of those years ago too --- it was GORGEOUS when it was quilted! You are very lucky!

I found a quilt top with the 50 states and their flowers. I am going to quilt it for a wall hanging when I get around to it! Lucky you!!!

I just saw one in a quilt show I went to. Here's a close up picture of the embroidery. Sorry I didn't take a full picture of the entire quilt.

That was all the rage when I was a teenager. I did "my" state bird quilt with embroidery paint.

Someone bought it, who appreciates the work. It's really a treasure.

why simply sash?? why not turn each into an Ohio star and then sash to make them larger and really eye catching??

I just bought a box of embroidery patterns, still in their envelopes..ALL of them are Laura Wheeler originals. There are 3 or 4 of the original state bird designs...each is different and 2 only have 48 states! There are also 3 of the state flower designs....I must get pix of those tonight!
