A Tribute To Abe Lincoln - Made by Liz

Liz pieced this AMAZING quilt, she calls the quilt, A Tribute to Abe Lincoln.
She sent it to me for some custom machine quilting. It was a really fun quilt to machine quilt, there are no 2 blocks alike and Liz tried to not repeat fabric in any block throughout the quilt, giving it a ton of interest.
I machine quilted a lot of little details, including a lot of stitch-in-the-ditch.
A little picture of the back. Turned out pretty cool.
A few fun facts about this quilt.
Every single block is paper pieced and all 121 blocks are 8" square.

Thanks for letting me machine quilt this fabulous quilt Liz!

Thank you to everyone who shared well wishes for my FIL, he had a second surgery today and if all goes well he will be able to come home tomorrow. Modern medicine is amazing!

  8. Such good news and delightful eye candy for us today. FIL's news amazes; as does modern medicine. In 1995, out-patient mastectomies hit our community; incredible to see post-op women buying greeting cards from me just single digit hours post-op major surgery.
