Civil War Quilts: a new blog from Barbara Brackman

Are you drawn to Civil War quilts and fabrics?  Quilt historian Barbara Brackman has started the Civil War Quilts blog to mark the 150th anniversary of the American Civil War.  She posts about both quilts and fabrics from the time, reproductions (including her own fabric line), and a block of the week, fleshed out with stories, history and historical photos. It is well researched, and a great way for those of us with little knowledge of American history to learn more through an interest in quilting.
