Fat Quarters 2017-2018

Missoula Quilters Guild


October:  This Montana native tree is in the Larch family. It is the only coniferous tree that loses its needles annually, but not before turning a beautiful golden color. Tamarack Tree—Gold.

November:  This animal is the Official Montana State Animal. A male can weigh up to 800 lbs., can be 3 ½ ft. high at the shoulder and has an identifying hump on its back. Commonly known as the Grizzly Bear because of the grizzled appearance of its fur. North American Brown Bear—Browns and Tans.

December:  A bright red wildflower that grows in alpine meadows and slopes from April to September. In Native American folklore the flowers sprouted from paintbrushes left scattered on the landscape by a Brave who wanted to paint the brilliance of nature. Scarlet or Indian Paintbrush—Red.

January:  This bird is in the raptor family, is our National Bird and is unique to North America. It takes about 5 years to attain solid white tail and head feathers, which is where its name originates from. It has a blackish-brown body, a wingspan of up to 7.5 feet and feeds mostly on fish. Bald Eagle—Black or White.

February:  This plant is the Montana State Flower. It has a pink blossom that grows close to the ground in drier climate valleys. Discovered by Merriweather Lewis in 1805, Native Americans used the dried roots as a vital part of their diet. Bitterroot Flower—Pink.

March:  This bird is seen in Montana in the spring in meadows and open areas. The male is a brilliant color while the female is mostly grey. Their flight pattern is a hovering and darting pattern because they mostly feed on live insects. A pair is monogamous with both taking care of their young nestled in birdhouses or tree cavities. Mountain Blue Bird—Blue.

April:  This coniferous tree averages 100-150’ tall and is the Montana State Tree. An evergreen, it has needles that are 5-10” long and when crushed they smell of citrus and turpentine. The orange-brown thick bark resembles a jigsaw puzzle and can be more fire resistant than other trees.  Ponderosa Pine—Green.

May:  This 9 ½” bird is in the Blackbird family and is the Montana State Bird. Both male and female have a black “V” on their bright yellow chests with brown, black and white spotted wings. Living mostly in open grasslands and around marshes, the females build their nest on the ground and cover it with grass for camouflage. They also have a complex beautiful song. Western Meadowlark—Yellow.

Thank you for playing—Dolores and Karen
