Jefferson City/#AtoZChallenge

During the month of April, I’m participating in the Blogging From A to Z Challenge for my 4th year in a row – 3 of which are on this blog. Each day, except Sundays, there will be a post for the letter of the day as well as keeping with my personal theme of Quilts and Quotes. Feel free to leave a comment! I’d love to hear from you! Also check out the other A to Z’ers in the comment section of the Official A to Z Blog Page.

Jefferson City is the name of today’s 6-inch block. It’s also name to my home state’s (Missouri) capital. Apparently there are a couple other Jefferson City’s in both Montana and Tennessee. First I’d heard this until I started writing about ours. Here’s a pic taken by myself of our capital building.MissouriStateCapital

Sitting on the bluff of the Missouri River, its open for tours daily except for major holidays. There is a museum and many Thomas Hart Benton paintings throughout. I always enjoy a visit thereĀ seeing exhibits and reading aboutĀ our state’s rich history. And this time of year the flowers are in full bloom. The magnolia trees are my favorite.

The author of the book I’m taking my blocks from is not shown to be from Missouri or lived here as far as I could find out. I wonder why she chose this Civil War Era block? I am glad she did because I loved that I could use all three fabrics in it.
