Happy Birthday Abe!


Today is Abe Lincoln's birthday and, to celebrate, I made a little log cabin doll quilt. It's 14 1/2" x 21 1/2". It's cloudy here today and probably will be for the next few weeks and that makes it hard to get a good photo. This is the best I could do.

Make sure to read today's post on Abraham Lincoln in the Civil War Quilts blog. It provides a good history lesson and has photos of some wonderful log cabin quilts!

I've finished the top for my Valentine's Day doll quilt. I used the four hearts I'd previously appliqued and surrounded it with hourglass blocks. It will be 16 inch square. I plan to hand quilt it this week-end.

Looking forward to March's doll quilts, I've considering using some blocks found in Aunt Clara's scrapbag. That bag is never ending! I thinking of using a stack of little four-patch blocks made of feedsacks or a stack of hourglass blocks made of shirtings and fabrics from the 1920's. I'll put up a photo of these when the sun finally decides to show its face again.
