From Betsy Chutchian, designer of the Susanna's Scraps 1830-1875 collection - "Susanna’s Scraps was inspired by mid-century antique quilts in my collection and by my great-great-great aunt who left Kentucky to join family in Texas in 1857. Mary Susanna Lunsford was 16 and she kept a diary during the journey with her sister, two brothers and her mother, my great-great-great-grandmother, Catherine Mathews Lunsford. Journal entries note time together sewing and quilting with her mother and sister. Can you just imagine all the fabric lovingly stitched into garments and quilts for their families, and the splendid bag of scraps each accumulated?! Please see the second picture for an idea of the prints and colours included.
The Layer Cake is a pack of 42 10" x 10" squares of fabric including the whole range, and there are many Layer Cake patterns now being produced that will help make a beautiful quilt from just one pack of fabric.
