Barack Obama Redwork Block Pattern - FREE
Will you be visiting Lancaster, PA between June 6 and December 31, 2008? Stop by the Heritage Center Museum for the exhibit "Patchwork Politics: From George to George W." The exhibit will feature a variety of quilts and other textile items from Presidential campaigns past. Unfortunately, there is not a catalog planned for this exhibit. No word yet on if there will be an exhibition checklist.
If you're a regular visitor to the Black Threads blog, you know I'm interested in hearing from those stitching quilts, wallhangings, or fabric postcards about the 2008 US Presidential election.
Have you seen Michael G. Buckingham's softcover book, Presidential Redwork: A Stitch in Time? In the 80 page book are patterns for each of the US Presidents as well as historical patriotic designs in redwork like the Great Seal of the United States, the American Eagle, the Liberty Bell, the White House, Old Glory and more. Of course, there's not a pattern for the winner of the 2008 US Presidential election. But, that shouldn't stop you!
As a gift from the Black Threads blog, I hope you enjoy this FREE redwork quilt block pattern featuring Barack Obama. Just click here to download it. In the next post is a block featuring Hillary Clinton. I hope you and your quilting friends enjoy!
