Our Nifty Fifty groups did swaps on both the Civil War and Revolutionary War.  Each quilter designed their
own quilt block and made a signature square with a description of their design and the history behind it.
We had 33 categories in our Civil War Swap. The Revolutionary War Swap had 26 categories
which included the Thirteen Colonies

Iowa
The the Tall Corn or the Hawkeye State
Our page has photos of the quilt blocks that were uniquely designed or chosen to represent the
state of Iowa in our Nifty Fifty Quilt Swaps.  Iowa's nickname the Hawkeye State is a tribute to
chief Black Hawk. Iowa is best known as American's Heartland and it is the heart of the Corn Belt.
The most common theme for the Iowa Quilt Blocks is Farming.  The original Iowa quilt blocks
used corn husks, farm landscape, cows and corn stalks as their designs. Sit back, relax and browse
through the beautiful quilt blocks. Learn more about the state of  Iowa through our informative and
educational  links. Be sure to bookmark our pages and come back often to get inspiration from our
unique quilt blocks.  Please support our pages by using our Google search bar at the bottom of our
page and our Amazon links for any purchases. Thank you for your support!!
