This was a Garden State Quilters guild challenge in 2006 to celebrate our 25th Anniversary.
I designed this quilt to resemble the old political bandannas of the late 1800s. The bandanna was custom made for our guild.
I inked all the black that you see.
I "made" the Lincoln cameo by fusing it on the fabric and then over inking it.
It was fun to pick out the various shirtings and prints. I used americana themes as much as possible.
This Mary Koval print was perfect for fussy cutting the corner.
What the? Shame on me! No Label? I will correct this soon.
So, can you find where my math went astray and how I managed to save this quilt?
BLT - a classic and perfect for hot evening when you don't want to "cook". Miracle Whip? Yep, midwestern through and through.
Look at the size of the tomato slice. crazy.
Happy HOT August.
