Grace's Garden 1820- 1860
by Betsy Chutchian for Moda
Grace is a composite of women who sought to bring grace and beauty to their homes regardless of station. Gardening brought peace, beauty and food for their tables. It gave a respite from the chores of the day,
a time for reflection, beauty, grace and satisfaction. As women often did, they translated what they saw around them into needlework and made beautiful heirloom quilts or simple, everyday quilts with a
purpose in the care of the family.
