£5.00 – £6.50
MODA Mini Charm packet ‘Ladies Legacy’
42 fabric squares of 2.5 x 2.5 inches (6.4 cm) from the beautiful ‘Ladies’ Legacy’ collection by Barbara Brackman.
Ladies’ Legacy celebrates a dynamic alliance in New York City in the 1860s. Period prints are drawn from a quilt stitched for a Union soldier’s hospital bed but never delivered. Each calico recalls a volunteer who spent the war years in the Woman’s Central Relief offices, keeping accounts of donations, shipping crates and barrels to hospitals, quilting in the attic and firing up the patriotic public to donate 34,000 quilts and blankets sent out from their Greenwich Village office. One of only about 20 survivors of the thousands of quilts made to comfort soldiers, the sampler’s fabrics provide traditional design for our Reproduction scrap bags. This collection will benefit the Quilt Research Centre at the University of Nebraska
Libraries Special Collection.
You can choose to have just the fabric bundle, or alternatively have the bundle gift-wrapped (with a bow in a clear cellophane bag) with 42 Hexagon paper pieces (1″).
