Lincoln's Platform

A lot have sent me e-mails about a picture of Lincoln's Platform. Its a old pattern, and I made it using metal templates my grandmother had. Its all hand pieced and made out of flour sacking, the cream and the prints. This is a picture of the top before I quilted it. Its hand quilted by the piece. It has 6 flour sacks on the back of the quilt, and I quilted it with cream thread. It was a fun quilt to make and piece. It went together quickly.

I have also noticed that this quilt pattern is also called Road to the White House, and the original pattern that was folded with the templates was called Roosevelt's Trip, the newspaper is dated 1934. Its set block to block. They are large blocks, they measure 14 inches finished.
