Emma Charcoal Flourish Yardage by Sherri and Chelsi for Moda Fabrics | SKU #37630 21
Sherri & Chelsi
Emma, born in 1865 in eastern Iowa, began a lifetime of sewing at 14 making clothes for herself, her brothers and later for her own family -- at some time developing a love for quilting. She made many utilitarian quilts and also many beautiful blocks and quilts, delighting in using the latest published patterns. Upon her death, her granddaughters divided finished quilts along with hundreds of Bear Paw, Dresden, and Grandmother's Flower Garden blocks to make many generational quilts.
This collection, named after Sherri's grandmother's maternal grandmother and inspired in part by some of the fabrics in Emma's quilts, presents a now to the inspirational past with a fresh presentation of the prints and patterns.
