Looking Forward

I'm a new reader of Barbara Brackman's blog.  I stumbled upon it one day just Googling Civil War quilt blocks and have been hooked ever since.  She is the authority on Civil War fabrics and the history of textiles of which I am sure you know!  She sponsored a Block of the Week in 2011 that included a Civil War history post every Saturday along with instructions for a block.   Anyway, about a week ago she announced she will be doing another Block-of-the-Week this fall this time centered around the "fight for women's rights."  It sounds like it will be a fun way to learn more about this important phase in history.  I am hoping she posts more about the fabrics popular in this era as the summer progresses.  More about the project here.
Talk to you later~
