Threads of Modernism

Threads of Modernism

As a quilt historian with a background in art history, Barbara Brackman is interested in how quilts reflect an era's design culture. She keeps online blogs about several related topics. Her most recent blog was called Historically Modern: Quilts, Textiles and Design. Twice a week she explores modernism in art history and relates it to the contemporary quilt world where artists are creating quilts based in modernism, whether they classify themselves as "Modern Quilters" or not.
