Cathy will be teaching a 6 month Block of the Month called Rachel Remembered 1820-1850. This is Betsy Chutchian’s for Moda. Betsy is known for her classic reproduction prints inspired by moving historical stories.

Rachel Rmembered’s inspiration derives from an antique quilt that included a print commemorating General Andrew Jackson. Seeing that print mixed with the many beautiful floral and chintz prints was a reminder of his wife, Rachel, who passed away after he was elected President of the United States but before he was inaugurated. Soft golds, federal blue, a deep shade of red, and creamy background prints complete the feel of this vintage collection.

Come in and see this as it is beautiful. More details will be available soon. If you are interested, please call the shop (812-346-4137) so that we can get an idea of how many are interested.
