Devil’s Claw – the Cover Quilt



Oh, this is going to be fun!  I’m going to take each quilt from the book out of the box and take its picture in my house and I will post them each day for 19 days – my own little book review.  I love these quilts and hope to make several of them myself.  Since we no longer have a retail shop, we won’t be selling this book, Civil War Remembered, published by Martingale but I’m sure you can order it online or ask your local quilt shop to order it for you.  You might even try Amazon – anyone who has pre-ordered this book, will you post in the comments where you found it and everybody read the comments so I don’t have to go back and post it again.  Our friend, Mary Ellen, owner of Little Quilts in Marietta, GA will be carrying it and I’m sure you could contact her to order it.

Stop back this afternoon for answers to some recent questions.

    I was able to pre-order your new book on Amazon. I didn’t look anywhere else. Looks like a great book to help use some of my collection of Civil War fabric.

    Luckily I had a gift card for Amazon and pre ordered. Looking forward to seeing each quilt as Mary posts them in her home. Sorry I missed seeing Mandy’s sale at Farm Chick Quilts.

    I saw where you can preorder it at Amazon. Kindle version and Paperback are both available.

    A question: When you make triangle squares, you cut 2 squares diagonally and then sew them together on the diagonal. Do you have to trim the completed triangle square or does it come out to the necessary size?
    It seems that no matter how careful I am with my seams or the method I use, they always need to be trimmed…..

      Betty – I hate trimming to size so I always cut the correct mathematical measurement – add 7/8″ to whatever finished size triangle square you want. Connie is in love with Thangles and you will have perfect triangle squares every time – guaranteed!

      1. Betty Klosterman

        Thank you for your reply. I’m going to have to experiment with the different ways again. Trimming takes time, but if we don’t start out with the right size, the finished block won’t come out right…..

    pre-ordered mine through amazon and can’t wait to get it. Love every single quilt in it and want to make them all!!

    I’m looking for the book ” Rugs from Rags”. Is this one of yours? Amazon lists it, but it isn’t available. I’m a serious quilter 🙂 and lots of scrap fabric. If this book is yours, can you help me get it?
    Thanks!

    1. Mary Etherington

      Yes, this is our book. You can purchase it from Mandy at Farm Chick quilts.

    I pre-ordered my copy at Barnes and Noble and am being given free shipping as a B&N member. I didn’t need to meet a minimum.
    Looking forward to the next 19 days.
    What a great idea, Mary!!!

    Martingale sent out an email about your new book. They notified me when it was available. The book was ordered this morning, can’t wait to see it in person.
