    Smile State Blocks

    Some while ago I met a family from Ohio, got chatting and when they returned to America we swapped interesting books. Hers were of an Ohio Quilt and mine was about Durham Quilting with the lovely Amy Emms M.B.E, now sadly deceased. Amazing quilter of mainly whole cloth quilts.

    It made me wonder whether there was a patchwork block specific to each American state and, if so, what are they? I know that various blocks can have several names. Am aware of Hawaiian designs.

    Here in England there are Welsh Quilts with designs, both pieced and quilted, specific to Wales - very Amish in many respects - but cannot find any other specific patchwork designs although you'll find quilting designs used more in one area than another.

    I'd be most appreciative of any responses. Thank you.

    Life isn't measured by the breaths that you take, but by the moments that take your breath away.
