While shopping at Red Rooster Quilts in Dublin, Ohio, I found this USA map panel. It’s the perfect size for a large pillow that will probably finish around 20 x 20 inches square. These colors work perfectly with our family room color scheme, game on!
I decided to start in the New England states and work my way from east to west, keeping with the history of our nation. I’m outlining every state with a straight stitch…Rhode Island is really tiny!
Since I visited Alaska last year, I am very much in love with this state! I can’t wait to get started on outlining AK! By the time I get there, it will mean I’m almost finished with outline quilting. Wish me luck with outlining all those little Hawaiian Islands!
Back to Opinions Needed:
What is the best way to mark each state I have visited in my travels? Should I add a bead? A sparkle? What would you do?
