The Founding Father wall hanging was fun and easy to make. I love Americana and have all kinds of it throughout the main living areas of my home.
The log cabin blocks are made from a 4″ center block and 2.5″ strips. The George blocks had to have a “frame” around them because they did not match the size of the log cabin blocks. There is always a way to creatively make quilt blocks fit.
I pieced this quilt top in March 2011 from historical looking small print fabrics for the log cabin blocks. The George Washington blocks were purchased on my jaunt to Paducah, KY in 2010.
There was one of these G. Washington blocks left over, and it became the center a different quilt.
The finished size of this wall-hanging is an easy to hang 46″ x 46″.
It was machine quilted in a stipple pattern by RLM in April 2011.
The batting is a cotton/poly blend. And the bright red backing is 100% linen. Yes, I was mixing up the types of textiles in this quilt.
It was a fun, quick project that frequently hangs in the living or dining room. The Founding Father wall hanging gets so many positive comments. I have received several offers to purchase it as well.
Make your quilting projects fun and meaningful to you. Enjoy making and using them in your home and life.
