I-80 Abe

“I-80 Abe”

25 wide x 15 high

$150

Are you a fan of road trips?  Our family LOVES them.  We’ve driven across the country a few different times & one of our favorite places to stop and stretch is on I-80, between Laramie & Cheyenne, Wyoming in the Medicine Bow mountains.

Abe - Close Up

This favorite spot of ours is where you can find a giant statue of Abraham Lincoln.  We call him I-80 Abe, but I assume he has a more official title like “Lincoln  Memorial” or something.

Abe - Overall

I pulled the photo I took of Abe out several years back to make a quilt from it, but just now got to doing it.

Abe - Quilting Detail

I love thought my topographic inspired quilting would be the perfect choice to use on something that exists in the mountains.

Abe - Back

All of the quilts I make to sell that I think might be used as wall hangings come with two pockets in the upper corners are the backside.  This is to make it super easy to hang the quilt.  All it needs is a dowel or thing board cut to the width of the quilt (minus the binding) and inserted into the pockets.  I like to use a very thin board and rested on two t-pins poked into the wall to hang quilts in my house.  This quilt is small, so it’s intended to be used as a wall hanging.
