Make your state a QUILT!

Texas Quilt by Deola Mitts

Look at this great quilt that Deola Mitts just finished! What a super idea. Just gather fabric that depicts what's in YOUR state and make it in the shape OF your state....so cool!

I live in PA, so I could find fabric with Amish buggies, apples, farms, snow, flowers, buildings, etc. The possibilities are endless!
What would YOUR state fabrics be?

Pretty! Let me know who to give credit to for this great idea!
Don't they have just the most beautiful "fabric panels" now a days? ...and those cool "fabric book" panels...I've made a Pinterest board to get some ideas for how to use some of them! Feel free to add some of your own :)

How NOT to make a "Trip Around the World" Quilt!!

my FIRST quilt
Found this old picture of my first quilt...I sure learned how NOT to make a quilt with this one !  I LOVE Amish quilts and have many books on the Amish. So I thought I could just look at the picture and make this quilt. I cut each little block individually , and then laid them on the floor and tried to figure out how to sew them in order... much later I finally discovered Eleanor Burns strip piecing way to do this!

Make a "Family Letter" Quilt

Saw this idea on the internet (if anyone knows who made this one, let me know so I can give them credit)...A family letter quilt!  I have journals that my Grandmother wrote, and also really old family pictures (tin type).

I am going to scan them into my computer and then transfer them onto fabric (you can buy at sewing stores) to make one of these great quilts! So personal :)
