Gridlock: Giddyup Political Quilt

I have been working on a new quilt that uses vintage handkerchiefs and linens--and a new flag bandana. It is inspired by "Gridlock", a"Giddyup" donkey block I received in exchange for a unicorn linen. I have had this quilt in mind for many months. 
The Know Your Presidents handkerchief stops at Eisenhower, as does the Republican Presidents handkerchief. The Democrat Presidents handkerchief ends with L. B. Johnson.
 The linens are from 1952--a special year to me.


I was going to use two more political handkerchiefs. But I decided to keep to the red, white, and blue color scheme.

I am considering one more set of borders, likely pieced.
