The Lincoln Bicentennial Quilt

I think it is very appropriate that Windham Fabrics should release a fabric collection in honor of the Bicentennial celebration of the birth of our 16th president. After over 150 years, Abraham Lincoln remains one of our most respected and admired presidents. I had the pleasure of designing a new quilt for this collection, and I also had the opportunity this summer to consider again

Lincoln's Heritage to our nation

Upon entering the museum, the view on the left was of a young dark-haired barefoot boy sitting on a rail fence in front of a log cabin. In contrast, the view on the right is of Lincoln, his wife Mary and their sons standing in front of the White House. As is typical of museums, the rooms are full of memorabilia and artifacts from his life and times. However, few museums create the atmosphere of hushed reverence that permeates this space. As I wandered from room to room, I was struck again of Lincoln's determaination to learn, his desire to serve America.  and his perseverance in running for public office. No one today would call his life "happy" — he was raised in poverty, he faced the deaths of loved ones throughout his life — mother, first love, two of his sons. And, as every student knows, his presidency was marred with a war that divided the

Union

and killed over 600,000 Americans.

The fabric collection features a large decorative panel with portraits of Ulysses S. Grant  and Robert E. Lee, the two generals of the Civil War.

Lincoln

, as seems typical of the man, is showcased in a more reserved fabric — a khaki background with mid-scale black motifs of him in a suit, a portrait with an eagle crest at the top of the frame, a battle scene, and more. The combination of these fabrics, and the coordinating prints, leads to the design of this quilt of a Civil War President.
