Today on “Try it on Tuesday” I am reviewing Mary M. Covey’s “Follow-the-Line Quilting Designs” Volume 5 Authentic Civil War Designs and More. The copy was sent to me to review from Martingale and Company.
First let me tell you, this is not a book. Originally when I requested it from Martingale, I thought it was. I had never seen one of the many “Follow-the-Line” products so I had no idea that it wasn’t a book.
It actually comes as a set with loose papers. The papers are long and open wide so you can use them in a pantograph style or trace them. There is a book included with quilting instructions for hand quilters, machines quilters and long armers.
It comes with 18 unique designs.
There are a variety of designs…my favorite of course is the feathers…
I like the alphabet too. All 26 letters are included. I can imagine stitching my initials into a quilt that I made.
There are some great classics like Clams shells…
and Baptist Fans.
There’s also a fun bird.
I love that the pattern sheets show how to turn the corners as that is always a challenge.
A bit ago I reviewed C&T Publishing’s Stash Books division generously donated a copy either e-copy of hard copy. The lucky winner of the book is…. Cecilia who said, “I am a modern quilter in the sense that I love the bright colors of today, but I also love to make traditional blocks. Thanks for the chance towin a copy of this book. I have it on my wish list. :-)”
Thanks for stopping by.
