Why are Colorado and Mississippi not shaped even remotely like the actual states? Mississippi is not even recognizable and Colorado has taken over a chunk of Kansas. How hard is it to draft Colorado? It is a rectangle.

Thanks for the input, Steffstout. I will recheck the pattern for accuracy today.

I just reread my comment and it sounds a little snotty. Sorry if that tone came through. It wasn't meant to. Sometimes it is hard to sound right when you are online.

You don't have a printed pattern? I have no printer that can do the printing.

Jupandy,
I sell the hard copy of the USA Patchwork Map through Etsy. It is available in my store, carolinasquirrell.etsy.com. Thanks for asking!

I was thinking of making this but noticed the shape for Mississippi is incorrect.

All the pattern pieces are reversed to make your raw edge fusible applique job easier.

I don't think she is referring to the pattern pcs. being reversible. Mississippi is not shaped like it is in the picture of this quilt. Mississippi looks nothing like that.

This is a download! So how does it print so that the parts are all the same size and large enough? I have paid for a pattern from another place and it its totally unusable to me because it doesn't print right. How do I know that this one will print right so its actually usable?

Jupandy, This will download in the correct size. I have taken great care to make sure each page is sized correctly and have even made the quilt again using the download to make sure all the pieces are just right.

I made a quilt like this a few months ago and was posting on facebook as I was working on it, was kinda surprised to see where someone else had done it too.

Brendamae, It would look great made in any color combination. I might just make another one in reds, whites and blues for my son in the Navy!

I'd like to do it in sold various colors and have my sister embroider on each state what that state is famous for :)

My daughter was in the navy for 8 years, my son-in-law has been in for more than 12, part of the lining for the quilt I made was made from fabric that is "Navy", pics are on my facebook page of the work in progress, I didn't put a completed pic on there.

so is this basically just the paper to cutout the individual states, and then no turned under edges, raw applique, right?

Yes, it is raw edge applique. Sorry I am so late in responding!
