Another Barbara Brackman Blog

Barbara Brackman has created a blog just for indexing quilt patterns! Yahoo. I'm adding it to my list of blogs to follow. It's called Cloud of Quilt Patterns and can be found at this link, http://encyclopediaquiltpatterns.blogspot.com/

She has also added a Pinterest page to illustrate the patterns, BlockBase on Pinterest. https://www.pinterest.com/blockbase/.

Quilts and Human Rights

I just got my copy of Quilts and Human Rights. Wow, the folks at University of Nebraska Press did a really great job. My co-authors Marsha MacDowell, Mary Worrall and Lynne Swanson are so proud.

You can get your copy from Amazon, http://www.amazon.com/Quilts-Human-Rights-Marsha-MacDowell/dp/0803249853 or the University of Nebraska Press, https://www.nebraskapress.unl.edu/product/Quilts-and-Human-Rights,677178.aspx

A Quilt for Kathy

This is a quilt for a dear friend who is battling cancer. When you're sick from chemo and radiation, there isn't much you can enjoy. Always cold, maybe a pretty quilt in favorite colors brings a little comfort. This quilt was a product of a block exchange group to which I'm a member. Thanks to Terry, Ruth, Carol, Louise, Jan, Dorothy, Daisy, Bonnie, Phyllis, Eileen, Cindy and Debra for making blocks or being a member of this group. I put the blocks together and machine quilted it. Sending healing thoughts with every stitch. Why does cancer have to strike the best of us?

Till next time....keep stitching
