Welcome to the United Squares of America! Pack your bags, throw together a playlist and head out on the ultimate American road trip.

We’ll drive through 54 pages and piece each of our 50 states, from Olympic National Park to Everglades National Park. Along the way we’ll visit many little squares — so many little squares — and stitch from sea to shining sea.

It may look overwhelming, with a million different fabrics cut into a menagerie of sizes of square before being reassembled in a complicated jigsaw, but it is actually pretty simple to piece. Perhaps a bit time consuming.

E Pluribus Unum Quadrangulum: Out of many little squares, one.

Quilt uses American Made Brand Cotton Solids (what else would you use to make this one?!) Colors and yardage listed on page 4. www.clothworks.com/amb

Finished quilt measures 70" x 50".

54 pages + cover
October 2018

I haven't tried to make any of this yet, but I am pleased with the pattern. It is a 54-page booklet with a nice heavy cover which will hold up over time. The map of the US is broken down into 17 sections, so you could just do one start or one area or take it on section by section. It has advice on organization for cutting, labeling pieces, etc. A huge project. And the designer's suggestion of using seismic maps (or topographic?) to inspire the quilting is a great one - I hope I remember if I ever get that far, because why not?
