Last year I was contacted by a member of the Mt. Bachelor Quilter's Guild, asking permission to use my version of the free State Flower pattern blocks to make a raffle quilt--and this is the result! I am just so thrilled to see another version of this quilt. The embroidery, quilting and colors are beautiful. If you click on the images you can see the detail a bit better. Even the alternate squares are quilted with flowers. I love it!
This brilliant point-set layout works just perfectly for the odd number of 50 blocks and creates a wonderful symmetry. I am quite certain this quilt is even more beautiful in person. If you are interested in seeing it live--the quilt will be shown at Pioneer Park (in Bend, Oregon) on August 15, 2015. If you want a chance to win it, raffle tickets can be purchased through the guild. Check back on their blog for upcoming info on that.
The free State Flower quilt blocks can still be found here on the turkey feathers flickr page, but with all the changes to the site it may be difficult and somewhat tedious to print them, so I have added a link on my website for a FREE PDF of the entire pattern. Yay! (Find it in the right sidebar). And if tracing is not your forte, you have the option of purchasing the patterns as iron-on transfers as well.
