Making and naming state quilt blocks has been a favorite project of quilters for centuries. In 50 States Quilt Blocks from Rita Weiss and Linda Causee, there is a block for every state. Some are old favorites, and some are brand new. The book includes complete instructions for making each block, the quilt block patterns found on the CD are included in the digital book; it contains the necessary templates in five standard block sizes (4.5, 6, 9, 12, and 15 inches). Patterns can be printed as needed using a home computer. Also included are basic quilt-making directions. To demonstrate some of the design possibilities, the book contains four complete projects, from a quilt using a single state block to one with a mix of blocks representing a family's history.
