Baltimore Blues Quilt Kit with Moda Baltimore Blues Fabric by Barbara Brackman. Baltimore blues pays tribute to Maryland's elegant antique quilts and to the city at the heart of the fashion. Fabrics in this collection from renowned quilt historian Barbara Brackman recall period prints from about 1840 to 1900. Bright blue and rich browns contrast with aged tans and golden greens in prints featuring sprigs, stripes, and stars. Print and color names recall Baltimore's cityscape from the harbor to Lovely Lane and Patterson Park.
