    Ohio Quilt

    Here's a small 2'x 2' quilt I made to hang on my sewing room wall showing all 88 counties in Ohio using batiks.

    Go Bucks!

    Really nice! Were the counties appliqued? Surely not pieced!

    Very well done & impressive. There are 254 counties in Texas & some are very small. I don't think I could ever make a wall hanging like yours but would love one.

    Nicely done. I like what you did with the quilting. Here in Georgia that would be 159 counties.

    Well, that is just too cute. Did you have a pattern or did you make your own?

    WOW, our 5 yr. old grandson would love that. He is interested in maps of all kinds and is constantly quizzing his parents on the capitals and population statistics. I am never playing trivial pursuit with him, his memory is photographic.

    Wow, that's fantastic! Was it a pattern or did you work from a map?
