LATELY ARRIVED FROM LONDON
Cotton Prints & Patchwork Before 1820
by Barbara Brackman
About the Book
To accompany her summer 2011 Moda quilting fabric collection of early 19th century reproductions, Barbara Brackman has published a little book with information about the prints, the technology and dyes and the quilts of the day. This 7-inch square book of 40 pages is a perfect little gift book, a companion perhaps to a package of pre-cut prints. The booklet contains a few patterns for period quilts with suggestions for using the reproductions in Lately Arrived From London.
Barbara Brackman is a historian with many professional publications to her name. Her specialty areas are quilts and needlework, local history and folk arts. She is the author of "Clues in the Calico: A Guide to Dating and Identifying Antique Quilts" and "Making History: Quilts and Fabric 1890-1970" among other books.
