Not quilted yet, but at least the borders are stitched on. I started this one over 30 years ago. I picked up a quilting magazine and saw an ad for a contest: State-themed quilt squares, 50 winners, one from each state. I was living in Delaware, so I did a Blue Hen, which you know, if you’ve ever attended a UD football game, is really a rooster. Apparently Delaware troops were better known for the valor of their fighting cocks than their actual fighting during the Revolutionary War.
The state had a grand total of one battle, The Battle of Cooch’s Bridge, a skirmish, really, where the colonials took potshots at British troops crossing the bridge. The bridge is still there, although rebuilt in concrete, and the Cooch family still lives in the big house next door, so far as I know.
Finally found the right fabric for the border and corner blocks. Never entered the contest. Maybe next year.
