Book Cover


Here's a sneak preview of the cover of the book. The designer recently sent a picture---I'm just giving you a preview as it's a secret, you know. It'll be called Barbara Brackman's Civil War Sampler but it should be Barbara and Becky's Civil War Sampler---as it's Becky's quilt up there.

Liberty & Union,by Becky Brown
 85'' by 101 1/2'' , 
 machine quilted by Deb Jacobs, 2011.

You'll recognize the blocks from the many posts in 2011.
Thanks to Becky!

The book will be shown to shop owners at fall 2012 quilt market. It will be in shops December 2012. Just in time to make it onto your Christmas list.

How exciting for you to see this sneak preview. How perfect to put Becky's quilt on the cover. You both did an amazing job of leading us through the blocks each week. It was a wonderful and unique experience, both in gaining skills and friendships, both real life and cyber space, I shall look forward to the book release.

How exciting! I should rename my quilt "Friendship Quilt" - Thanks to everyone who made this project so much fun by sharing your blocks and comments. I can't wait to see what Barbara has tucked inside the book. Happy sewing, everyone.

I was expecting this book ! each week I printed the blocks and explanations but could not print of course all the stories behind these blocks and I was certain that some of these days all these posts would become a book. I will certainly buy it as soon as it is published so as to complete my Barbara Brackman's books collection. Thanks a lot Barbara...
