Fat Quarters 2017-2018

Missoula Quilters Guild


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
