Pine Burr Quilt!

This awesome quilt is the creation of Nifty Quilts
Each "pine burr" is made from a 3" square, 
folded twice on the diagonal, and each block has about 144 burrs. 
Follow the link to Nifty's blog to see how to do this. 
I think the floral fabric in the outer border is just perfect!
The sashing is denim. Oh Nifty, you rock!
***
The Pine Burr Quilt is the official state quilt of Alabama
Gee, I wonder if Connecticut has an official state quilt.

I love this quilt and wish I had time to make one! Unfortunately, Kansas does not have a state quilt. I'm quite impressed that some states do!

Connecticut's state quilt should be SELVAGE, of course!

It is such a wonderful quilt! It must be even more interesting in real with its 3D effect... It is a quilt that brings joy and warmth at home, a genuine masterpiece, bravo LeeAnn !

No one does it like LeeAnn, she turns recycled into beauty time and time again:0), I think she has a great color sense too.
Another great Nifty creation!

Happy Sewing

Thank you for featuring this quilt, Karen! It really is a fun stash-eater. I hope many of your readers will try it. I agree, the Connecticut state quilt should be selvedge!

It is also a traditional quilt design of the Lumbee Indian Nation (a sizable tribe in NC). I love it!
