I nabbed it just last weekend at the antique mall. It has, embroidered in the squares, all of the state birds! And state flowers! And little, odd, totally unofficial (updated: Thanks so much all of you who told me what's what about these older abbreviations) state-abbreviations in banners! When I found it, I did the crazy, looking-around-suspiciously thing you do when you can't believe that someone hasn't snapped up a quilt featuring all of the state birds and flowers and state-abbreviations in banners.
