State Flower Shields Quilt

I'm pretty excited to tell you about another beautiful State Flower Quilt pattern I came across recently.  This design block has shields framing the flowers with the state names at the top.  The pattern also includes directions for making a simple lattice-style quilt incorporating all fifty states.  It's constructed of 5 rows across, 10 rows down, with a strip border on each side to give it the extra width.  Pretty basic. The original pattern wasn't in an envelope so I don't have an official date, but judging from the style of transfers I'm guessing 1950's era maybe.   So, there you go if you are looking for a big stitching project to carry you through the long winter months.
