Lincoln Cabin Quilt kit 84" X 96" Homespuns BBLCQ kit

Woven cotton is stitched together in a scrappy way using only 2 block patterns: a scrappy 16-patch and a star pattern. This replica of an early 19th-century reproduction quilt was created especially for the cabin exhibit at the Abraham Lincoln Museum in Springfield, Illinois, by Barbara Brackman and Deb Rowden. If you visit the museum in Springfield, IL. you will find this very same quilt spread upon the bed in the cabin. I have an agreed arrangement and permission from Barbara Brackman to re-print her instructions for this kit. I think this is my all-time favorite kit in the shop because, being an Illinoisan, the history of Abe Lincoln has always been of great interest to me. 
The stars & 16 patches in this early 19th-century reproduction quilt are pieced with Homespun Woven cotton.
Inside this pattern, you'll find history about quilts on the frontier and instructions to create your own version of this reproduction quilt.
Binding and backing are sold separately (binding & backing are not in the kit)
Here at Ma’s, we have come as close as possible to reproducing the fabric picks to the original ones used in the museum quilt and have kitted them for you to add to your collection.
The Pattern in this kit was purchased from the authors: Barbara Brackman & Deb Rowden. The original booklets are out of print, and the copy that is included in this kit is copyright-protected; please do not copy and give it to friends.
The kit includes the pattern & the fabrics to complete an 84" X 96" top. We have kitted each block (56 blocks) in separate bags for your convenience; this keeps blocks distinct & uncomplicated. (binding & backing are not in the kit) purchase them separately.
Let's protect our designers and let them make a living from their artwork and writings. Just the same as we do at our jobs. Do not deny them this opportunity to make a living. Let's keep it honest, just like Abe!
