Hello all, Mary Ellen here.
Wouldn’t a quilt like this be a fun group project? The next raffle quilt? No, I don’t think so! Read all about it at this blog. (Jan. 11 entry)
I think this rainbow idea is very nice, but wouldn’t it also be fun to try to choose a fabric to represent each state? What would be good for NY? First thought was apples, or Statue of Liberty but those are more for New York City rather than the entire state. I suppose this idea might also be difficult to execute–getting enough contrast between bordering states.
So many of the comments at the original blog post talked about making the quilt for kids-maybe this could become a quilt for courage kind of thing.
Anyway, I love this quilt.
