    I am completing UFO's I have had this Minnesota State fabric for a couple of years and just got around to making a pattern .
    it took many trials and errors to come up with this. But think that it turned out good. There are many Minnesota landmarks on the fabric. Split Rock Light House/Capital Building/names of many places/Walker Sculpture garden. I did a lot of FMQ on my Janome 6500.

    Love it! Love the pines quilted behind the duck and the appliquéd pines. Excellent design, piecing, and quilting. You should put it in shows.

    You should certainly enter that into the MN State Fair! It is a great quilt, and beautifully done.

    But where is the mosquito? I thought that was the 2nd state bird!

    My son graduated from Winona State in MN and this quilt reminds me of all the beautiful scenary in that area. What a great quilt to honor a lovely state!

    As my Grandson would say..."that rocks"! Minnesota is truly a wonderful state (we will not discuss the taxes), A great place to grow up and to live. Did you get the walleye in there somewhere? You did a wonderful job and I think you should take it to the State Fair!
