A little history anyone?

I love all aspects of quilting and and particularly drawn to the history of quilts, so I'm always looking out for quality information about quilting history. (Like Barbara Brackman.) So when I read this on Pickledish, I knew wanted to share it with you.

The Kentucky Quilts Project has produced a new nine-part documentary series titled Why Quilts Matter: History, Art & Politics It will air on PBS this Fall. Whoo Hoo! It looks like it will not only show the history of quilting, but it's impact on women's lives and culture. It also will delve into quilting today, which is exciting - to many people think quilting is old-fashioned and irrelevant. We know that's not true!
