New Blog: “Civil War Quilts Commemorate the 2011 Sesquicentennial with a Block of the Week”

Barbara Brackman has just begun a blog commemorating the sesquicentennial of the Civil War with an eight inch quilt block a week and Civil War stories told through the patterns. The blocks and stories on her blog are taken from her publications over the years.

Here is the blog address: http://civilwarquilts.blogspot.com/

Barbara Brackman is quite knowledgeable about antique quilts and quilt history, especially in the time frame of the Civil War.  Her blog posts  began yesterday and she plans to post weekly.  I look forward to her writings.

I have a presentation about women and their quilts during the Civil War, as 2011 marks 150 years since that war began.
