War of 1812 Era Fabrics Now in

Subscribe to the Great Lakes Seaway Trail War of 1812 Quilt Challenge blog to keep up with another great War of 1812 quilting project.  A recent post profiles some beautiful new fabrics:

“Lately Arrived from London” will delight fans of early calicoes and chintzes. The collection recreates fabrics from the turn of the 19th century when Americans imported their cottons. Traders brought the world’s luxury goods to wharves in Philadelphia,Boston and New York. Each piece is named for a trading ship that sailed intoAmerican harbors – the Charming Betsy, the Brigantine Sally, the Ship Surprise.
