50 States Quilt Block Swap- Can you guess the state?

Can you guess what state this is? I chose apples as the focus fabric because it is this states official fruit. In fact, this state produces more apples than any other state in the union. The background fabric is coffee beans on black. This state produced a certain coffee company that is now found on almost every corner throughout America and is the biggest coffee chain in the world. So what do you think?

Washington! I was pretty sure when you were talking about apples, but the coffee company clinched it--Seattle/Starbucks.

Now if I am wrong, I am going to feel really stupid! :)

PS--I live in Colorado too.

Washington ... but I see someone beat me to it. Hey, I don't know why I didn't think of it earlier, but how about airplanes for North Carolina? You know, Wright Brothers, "first in flight", all that.

Washington - this is a great swap and idea!! I love your fabric choice for Montana and Colorado - my husband goes out to Colorado hunting elk every other year or so.

I def knew that this was Wash too!

I have to ask though, how come the blocks are all the same style? Is everyone doing all the same style? Or? I want more details of this swap! :)

Everyone is using the same star pattern with different fabrics to reflect their states and all the blocks are 6.5" square. So the creative part is finding fabric to reflect the state. I wasn't sure I liked this block pattern at first, but it is starting to grow on me when I see mine mingling with each other. I am really excited about seeing how everyone's turns out.

Fun swap idea, I've been watching throughout. But being from washington I had to comment on this block! Great fabrics and a GREAT idea. Every year at our Western Washington Shop Hop we have a focus fabric that highlights WA state. If you ever do another I'd be happy to send some over!
