There's a new book available, "State Bird and State Flower Quilts"
Identification Guide by Rose Marie Werner
STATE BIRD AND STATE FLOWER QUILTS contains all-new information coming from research done by the author, Rose Marie Werner of Dundas, MN. Rose Marie is an independent researcher of 20th Century quilt designs and patterns. She compares thirty seven different sets of bird and flower quilt blocks. This book also includes the history behind state birds and state flowers and information on the birds and flowers chosen by each state.
You can order a copy HERE or on Amazon.

Makers are advised not to use a white ground fabric since so many of the flowers are white. They are also instructed to use carbon paper to transfer the design onto the fabric.
My set of McKim Studios State Flower patterns were published in the Kansas City MO Journal Post Newspaper in 1932.

I owe a long over due thank you to JULIEROSE. We had a little mix up with comments, readers with the same name and I think a husband was thrown into the mix!
Anyway, Julierose graciously sent me a goodie box over flowing with things I love! Very thoughtful and I extend a heartfelt thank you!
I'm about to settle in for some long over due hand quilting.
I hope you are having a great week!
