My Deacon's bench

Grand Detour church 1847

This deacon's bench was originally at the Grand Detour, Il . Peter's Episcopal Church , also home of John Deere, a blacksmith and later inventor of the plow.
I purchased it at an antique store in Dixon Illinois, and it sits at one end of my kitchen.

I made this tied bench quilt made using 16 Log cabin blocks,

batting and lining the back.
