Block of the Month 2009 "Lincoln Bicentennial Quilt"

To commemorate the 200th birthday of Abraham Lincoln Liz Laney has decided to do a "Lincoln Quilt" for our Block of the Month.  
Here is a picture of Iva Mae showing some of Liz's finished log cabin blocks.  
You can make one too!
Consult your Patchwords for patterns and inspiration. 
On a side note, the resemblance between Liz and Iva is uncanny.
