Meet the Author

Barbara Brackman has been crazy about fabric since she was a child in the 1950s. She spent a good deal of her youth watching old movies on television while she embroidered dishtowels. Barbara became interested in quilt patterns as an undergraduate at the University of Kansas in the 1960s. At the back of the classroom in which she studied art history, she discovered drawers full of quilt blocks. These blocks were the collection of Carrie Hall, who had published a patchwork index in the 1930s entitled The Romance of the Patchwork Quilt in America. Determined to make a quilt in every design, Barbara started a file of quilt blocks. She soon realized, as Carrie Hall had, that one person could not hope to stitch a block in every pattern, much less a quilt. An index card on each, however, was possible, and over 25 years, Barbara's file grew to include thousands of quilt patterns. She has written many books about fabric and quilts, was a founding member of the American Quilt Study Group, and is an honoree of the Quilters' Hall of Fame.
