A Blue Thread of History

A Blue Thread of History

Posted by Jeanie German on Jan 3rd 2017

All quilts have a story. With each stitch, their makers imbue the spirit of care, creativity, and warmth into their seams. But, like points on a history book timeline, quilts can also showcase the evolution of fabrics and trends—while telling the stories of quilters’ lives.

In True Blue QuiltsAnnette Plog honors these stories. Part project book, part exploration of history, True Blue Quilts instructs readers on how to sew beautiful reproduction quilts that pay homage to the women and quilts of the nineteenth century. (It wasn’t always as easy as walking into your favorite quilt shop to find that lovely blue floral pattern!) Annette also shares how blue became such a mainstay in quilt design.

For those who love sewing a story, these historical quilts—love letters to history—will definitely speak to you.
