Today on “Try it on Tuesday” I am reviewing a book that was sent to my by Martingale and Company, “Civil War Legacies” by Carol Hopkins.
If you are a reproduction quilter…if you like small pieces…if you like small projects, have I got the book for you.
During one of my visits to Country Threads, I saw this quilt, “Alexander’s Bean Pot” from the book made…oh I loved it.
The cover quilt is “Papa’s Birds”. It’s another I’d love to have in my house.
Are the pinks and browns great in this quilt? I wish you could see the quilting in the pattern…gorgeous.
This is “Tomorrow Scarlet”. I’ve made this quilt.
Some of the quilts in the book may look familiar to you. Carol Hopkins has a pattern company and many of the quilts in the book were patterns before they were complied in a book.
This one is my favorite…simple but great, “Martin’s Pennies”. I think it’s the colors….blue always calls my name.
I love the way Martingale has laid out the book. There is picture of the quilt displayed as you might display it in your home, then there is a picture of the whole quilt.
Of course no Civil War pattern collection wouldn’t be complete without a star quilt. This is “Stars to Freedom”.
..or a log cabin block.
I love the book and would love to keep it but I am passing it on to one of you. With 15 projects in the book, one is sure to please.
If you’d like to win, just leave a comment here telling what type of quilts you prefer to make. The projects in this book are all small…do you prefer bed sized quilts..or maybe throws.
