This one is for my baby brother's teenage son. It was requested almost two and a half years ago. I'm shocked at how long it takes me to get things done now that I'm in a horrible work assignment. Anyway, this is one more finish.
Actually, this quilt got it's beginning when my baby brother was much younger---I think I drafted and hand pieced the star back in the mid 1980s.
I included more Lincoln's Platform blocks not only because I've always liked them, but also because our family spent generations in Illinois, and Lincoln was one of my heroes as a child.
Yes, it includes plenty of feathers. Our church held a blessing for our prayer quilts a week or so ago, so this quilt is ready to travel to the Houston area.
