July Schnibbles "Lincoln"

My Lincoln quilt for the July Another Year of Schnibbles project almost became a UFO. Despite my best intentions of having the quilt done a couple weeks ago, I am coming in just under the wire.
I had Lincoln loaded on the frame last week, but no time to work on quilting.
I have to say this was a really fun quilt to piece.
It would be perfect for a beginner--no matching seams (except for the blocks)
and the floating stars can't lose their points!

I just finished the binding today.
I was inspired to do an outdoor photo because of the beautiful shots Joanne at The Patriotic Quilter has been doing with her quilts.
This is a fence near our parking area next to our driveway.
Up North you need extra parking areas for visitors, boats and such. Nothing special, but the light was pretty good. 

I used a pantograph called Flirt. 

A "designer" back. I got to use up a lot of stash on that!
I will be putting the label on tonight and call it done--yay!

Be sure to visit Sherry and Sinta at the end of the month to see the Schnibble parade!


  1. Wow! How pretty is this quilt! I love it. I'm glad to have inspired you, as well. The outdoor photo is lovely. I can hardly wait for the parade tomorrow!

  2. Hi Karen--Just love "Lincoln"; it is beautiful. I especially love the floating stars--sounds great for a "point cutter-offer" like me! Hah--Hugs, Julierose
