Nancy's Needle by Betsy Chutchian for Moda Fabrics

Nancy Catherine Lunsford Haggard (1839-1921) was my great-great-great aunt. She was the middle sister to Lizzie and Susanna, and while she was born in Kentucky, she moved to Texas in 1857. Thanks to the journals kept by Great-great-great grandmother Lizzie Mathews Carpenter, Kate, as Lizzie called her, shared the same talent and affinity for sewing and quilt-making as her sisters. 

Nannie Kate, as referred to by family, married one of my great-great-great grandfather's best friends, Clint Haggard. Together they would have nine children. Their home was a busy one, with so many to clothe and keep warm. Just like her sisters, she sewed their garments and made crib and bed size quilts.

Lizzie's journals record a love of the sisters and their mother, gathering together for 'quiltings'. Entries include helping each other with garments and quilts. Clothing is mentioned in detail, but sadly few names of quilts were included. My imagination races still, wondering which blocks they pieced, the quilts they made and the designs they quilted.
