2016 Finished Quilts - Land of Lincoln Sampler - Quilt 7

I have written several posts on this quilt during the construction process of the top.  It is out of civil war reproductions and the top center block has a picture of President Lincoln, thus the name, Land of Lincoln Sampler.

It is more of a wall hanging, lap quilt. as it measures 60" X 60".  Right now, my mom covers up with it for an afternoon nap on occasion.

Here is the picture of President Lincoln, in the center of a block.  Sorry for the shadow of me taking the picture.

The blocks were all different, most I haven't done before, but this kind of project always builds more quilting skills.

The backing is nondescript, just a plain small beige reproduction print.  

The setting blocks between the quilt blocks are five strips of the various fabrics used in the quilt, this was a first for me using this type of setting blocks, and it is a wonderful way to use up leftover fabric, rather than adding another background fabric.  

Next are the specific facts about the quilt:
