    State Fabrics

    Minnesota has its own fabric line made for their state-wide shop hop. I know that they have done this for at least 3 years. Does anyone know if other states do this?

    I think there was a fabric line with state flowers (or was it birds?) a few years ago.

    Ah, it was flowers

    I know the City Quilter in NYC has produced some NYC-specific fabrics over the last few
    years.

    That's the only other locale that comes to mind.

    Saw Tennessee at Mary Jo's today. Had highlights from all over the state, Nashville, Memphis, Chattanooga, etc. Quilt Blocks Galore has a block for each state.

    The central Kansas shop hop has had a focus fabric printed at least two different years and maybe more. As far as I know the only way to get it is to go on the shop hop.

    West Virginia has had State fabric in 2010 (ink drawings of important places around the State) and 2011 (batik outline of the State.

    Ohio had State fabric in 2011 (ink drawings of many Ohio barns).

    The Denver area shop hop featured Colorado state flowers. I don't recall the fabric company that makes it. It had our state flowers in different back ground colors.

    I agree with not really liking the designs of most of the Texas fabric (except I do like the barbed wire). I like the idea that they have Texas fabric designed for their state wide shop hop. Where did you find the Tessellating Texas pattern. Would like to see that.

    That sounds like a fun idea. Jean and Valorie Wells live here in Oregon, perhaps they could design something.
