The Lincoln Museum Quilt: A Reproduction for Abe's Frontier Family. By Barbara Brackman & Deb Rowden. Paper Pattern for a scrappy plaid quilt.
Woven cottons - stitched together in a scrappy way - are the stars in this early 19th century reproduction quilt, created especially for the cabin exhibit at the Abraham Lincoln Museum in Springfield, Illinois.
Quilt Finishes to 84” x 96” Blocks Finish 12”
This is a pattern for a single historically based quilt. You get history about quilts on the frontier and instructions to create your own version of this striking quilt. The pattern is excellent for beginners and children, as the blocks are simple and the pattern instructions and rotary cutting directions are detailed and clear.
"I made the quilt as directed, it was quite easy. The information about the museum was an added bonus. The quilt looks great in our log cabin, and since I used scraps from other sewing projects---no two blocks are alike. Love it." Bee in an Amazon review.
We originally published this pattern as a booklet, The Lincoln Museum Quilt, with the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Museum and Kansas City Star Books in 2008. That pattern book, which cost $12.95, is out of print so we are republishing in digital fashion.
