The Moda Nancy's Needle fabric collection celebrates the life of Nancy Catherine Lunsford Haggard (1839-1921) who was the great-great-great aunt of this fabric ranges designer, Betsy Chutchian. Thanks to the journals kept, she shared the same talent and affinity for sewing and quilt-making as her sisters. Just like her sisters, she sewed their garments and made crib and bed size quilts. Lizzie’s journals record a love of the sisters and their mother, gathering together for ‘quiltings’. Entries include helping each other with garments and quilts. Clothing is mentioned in detail, but sadly few names of quilts were included.
