Inspired by Barbara Brackman - 2.1.2023


February 1, 2023
Just completed this quilt top - Rising Sun from America's Printed Fabrics 1770-1890 by Barbara Brackman (C&T Publishing 2004).  We have been iced in for the last three days and during that time I was able to finish the top.  This book talked about the different types of fabrics used in 1770-1890 - both for clothing and for quilts.  I really enjoyed making this top.  I have made a scrappy back for it and will be taking it to a longarm quilter soon.  

I enjoy listening to audiobooks while I sew.  Right now I am listening to the last of the Coffeehouse Mysteries by Cleo Coyle.  I only listen to fiction audiobooks while I sew - Nonfiction books, I feel, require more attention that Fiction ones.  The narrator for this series - Rebecca Gibel - changes inflection/accent between characters and I enjoy that a bunch.

Note:  I started this blog in 2014, but stopped posting.  This is my first posting in quite a while.
