|History of Old Tippecanoe||
The beautiful quilt Tippecanoe and Tyler Too designed by Liza Prior Lucy and Kaffe Fassett. It is based on an Ohio Star block.
From the early 1800's, the Ohio Star had long been a staple of quilters and a favorite of Amish quilters. Made of five squares and four QST blocks it was said to be named (perhaps) after a star block quilt made by the wife of the Ohio Governor. After the Presidential campaign of 1840, a variation of this block was named Tippecanoe and Tyler Too for President William Henry Harrison whose nickname was "Old Tippecanoe".
The block is as colorful and unique as President Harrison – who was at the time the oldest man elected President, was the first sitting President to have his photo taken, gave the longest inaugural address in history (over 2 hours), and died in office only having served 31 days. A former Congressman and Senator of Ohio before becoming President, his remains are buried in Ohio.
