A Notable QUILT book
Another behind-the-scenes quilt book adventure:
Yesterday Barbara Brackman and I attended a ceremony in the Kansas State Capitol. Barbara was honored for writing one of the 2008 Kansas Notable Books. She was honored for Making History: Quilts and Fabric from 1890-1970, published by C&T. It is a great book with a great cover quilt (made by yours truly). I edited the book.
The governor's wife, Stacy Parkinson, presented the medals. She is an avid reader with Michelle Obama muscle-y style arms.
Here is a photo of the medal recipients. Barbara is in the front row, third from the left. Stacy is behind her in a white dress.
