Received this new little book that is chock full of information about fabric history! It says it is Volume 1, so that looks like there are more to come!
Very easy to read and understand text. And, there are Real Reproduction Fabric samples for each topic! Historical facts about color are fascinating. You will find the book at ReproductionFabrics.com
A real treasure for those interested in quilt/fabric history!!
New fabrics received this week are a fabulous Toile "Birdsong" from Andover in three colorways. Wonderful toile to use as large pieces featuring the flowers and birds or even cut up in small pieces as backgrounds in your quilt blocks!
The following 3 photos show the different flowers and birds........
From Barbara Brackman's new "Civil War Jubilee" line are these three Paisley Stripes......great for sashing/borders!
The block below is a little "teaser" of some photos I will show for fabric study of a c.1840 quilt next time!
