AYOS "Lincoln"

So when Sherri and Sinta posted the August Schnibbles pattern I was so excited!! The pattern called "Lincoln" was perfect for me!  You see I love Civil War Prints.  When I started to think about this pattern I went on the hunt for Civil War Period Prints.  I searched and searched and found it!  I used Metropolitan fair by Barbara Brackman for Moda.  If you don't know about her she has written many books with patterns for Civil War Era prints.  The stories in her books are fabulous....well more like Journal entries from people alive during that era.  So I thought it fitting to use that fabric! I was only able to finish the quilt top, got it done about 4 hours before leaving for vacation, see below.   So without further ado.....I present to you "Lincoln" Another Schnibbles Pattern.....Enjoy! And feel free to leave any comments! I sit and anxiously await the next pattern! 


  1. Tilda! I've emailed you twice so I might be in your SPAM folder!

    The large squares - 9 3/4" x 9 3/4" - are cut twice on the diagonal to make 4 triangles from each square. Those are the side setting triangles. The smaller squares are cut once on the diagonal to make 2 triangles from each square - those are the corner triangles.

    And the squares/triangles are a skosh oversized to allow you to trim the sides straight. :)

    1. Thank you Thank you!!! Onward and upward for the AYOS Parade!
