Innovative fabrics have historically sparked new fashions in quilt styles. This talk will look at how fads in clothing and interior design influenced 19th-century patchwork fashion. She’ll discuss trade, technology, and taste from domestic cloth and pillar prints to oil-boiled calicoes and cretonne.

Barbara Brackman is a quilt historian and the author of Clues in the Calico and America’s Printed Fabrics. She also designs reproduction prints for quilters, writes magazine articles about traditional design and women’s history and maintains several blogs on the topic.
This lecture is generously funded by the Mary Ann Butterfield Memorial Textile Lecture Fund.
