    50 States Quilt Finally!!

    Here is the picture of my 50 States quilt. This project took about 2 1/2 years just to get a quilt block from each of the 50 states, but I finally got it sewed together with one border, will probably add another border. Thank you to everyone on this board that made a block for me from your state I appreciate it more than you will ever know. I think there is about 16 states from this board.

    Gena, so very pretty. I'm glad you were able to get 50 people to co-operate! But quilters are a giving, loving bunch. I know I was more than happy to assist.

    It turned out great. I love all the different blocks. Everyone was so creative.

    What a neat quilt. Thanks for reposting the picture so we can better appreciate your quilt. I love it. The blocks are so neat. It all worked together-- how good is that when the blocks come from 50 places.
