Hi Everyone:

This is my third top (designed it for my Husband for Christmas). My DH is a gulf war and Operation Iraqi Freedom Vet. He loves American history, studying our founding fathers, etc.

This was a hard one because I had to fussy cut all the Abe Lincoln faces. It is set up the the Navaho pattern so block placement was tedious.

I hope he likes it! Opinions please!

Nice work!!! I like the design. It's so much fun to figure out a quilt yourself. I like doing it better than following a specific pattern.
