Hi Judie, THANKS so much for picking up the State Quilt Blocks Series. That is how I found BellaOnline in the first place. I have the book that was reprinted in the 1970's and have been working on making a block for each of the 7 states in which I have lived. The directions in the book use templates instead of measurements. I prefer quick measurements to messing with templates, when possible. I have also found that there are different variations to some of the blocks. Some are even totally different. Anyway, it is a fun way to remember all of my homes. I Love your newsletter. CDM
