Barbara links her books, e-Clubs and Moda reproductions to give quilters lots of opportunities to create accurate reproduction quilts. Her most recent print projects include a few from Star Books. Flora Botanica: Quilts from the Spencer Museum of Art, is an exhibit catalog of antique quilts with patterns for reproductions. She's also been using her digital photo manipulation programs to create some very silly takes on classic paintings. See her 16 month calendar The Lost Quilt Masterpieces and a set of Notecards with more images. These are available from the Kansas City Star's Pickledish.com.

For C&T Publishing she's added a volume about the 20th century to her quilt history series. Making History Quilts & Fabric from 1890-1970 contains information about quilt style, fabric style and how to create reproduction quilts. For more information see C&T Publishing.

Her digital experiments include a second eClub for C&T. This year's online subscription club is called "Clues in the Calico" and features a monthly installment on America's earliest quilts with patterns for an authentic medallion. Check it out here: Clues in the Calico.com

Barbara Brackman thinks the Anniversary of the War of 1812 is a great excuse to make a quilt. Throughout the end of 2011 and the anniversary year of 2012 she’ll be posting ideas, patterns, historical information and 200-year-old gossip on her newest blog, 1812 War & Piecing.
