Civil War Blocks
I'm all caught up on blocks for Barbara Brackman's Civil War Block of the Week.
Star of the West
Have you seen Barbara Brackman's new blog about the War of 1812 called Quilt 1812: War and Piecing? Next year will be the bicentennial of that war and she is posting about the very few early quilts that date from the first decades of the 19th century as well as design and fabric traditions from the time period. Barbara Brackman is my Quilt Idol--serious scholarship, wonderful writer, and beautiful fabric & pattern designer. Who is your Quilt Idol?
