Civil War Sampler Microfiber Cloth

I know it's an oxymoron---the words Civil War and Microfiber in the same sentence--- but it's a great stocking stuffer.

C&T Publishing, which is publishing the Civil War Sampler book, took Becky Brown's cover quilt and printed it on their

fast2clean™ Microfiber Cleaning Cloths
Swipe any screen clean!

Here's what you get in a package ($9.95):
1 Large Cloth, plus 1 Medium and 2 Mini Static-Cling Cleaners
Now, do not put too much reliance on the historical idea of a Civil War microfiber cloth.
Abe Lincoln here is probably asking Matthew Brady if he can borrow his handkerchief to clean his glasses. He undoubtedly used a handkerchief to clean his smartphone screen too.

We were looking for a lovely quilt image and Becky's is beautiful.

Here's what they say about the product:

"Each package contains four antimicrobial, lint-free cleaning cloths:
• One large (7” x 6”) Super Hi-Microfiber cloth
• One medium (3” square) Super Hi-Microfiber cloth with static cling backing
• Two mini (1.5” square) cloths with static cling backing

I stuck the medium-sized cloth to my monitor
where it will remind me to actually clean the screen.

Printed with gorgeous full-color details of a quilt featured in Barbara Brackman’s book, Civil War Quilts, these high-quality, reusable cloths are great for cleaning your computer or television screens, as well as smaller devices like cell phones, LCD displays, and cameras. Use them on your eyeglasses, mirrors, CDs, jewelry and more - just toss them in the wash as needed. With the special static cling backing on the medium and mini sizes, you can easily attach the cloth to your device, remove it to swipe your screen clean, then re-attach it and keep it handy for next time.

Hopefully I will get more pieced quilts done this year. I was looking at a long arm but I couldn't justify the cost for my use;)

I love the idea of the microfiber cloths for my computer screen and my glasses - also one for my sewing machine. On my xmas wishlist! Thanks

I hope a Lincoln impersonator is available for the late-night infomercial;-) If I had any production talent whatsoever, I'd be making a pitch video for YouTube. With the historical incongruities of product and Civil War motif that you so skillfully exploited, all that's needed is a couple of not-really-that-subtle actors and a great infomercial pitchman. Endorsements from historical figures could be had. Maybe one of your readers will step up.

Hi: I just received your new book Civil War Sampler. I was hoping for some guidance in setting the blocks on point. I don't know what the formula is for the triangles and contrast blocks for an 8" block or a 12" block. How do I figure this out?
Thank you
