31532-16 Hope's Journey California Gold Fat Quarter

By Betsy Chutchian for Moda - California Gold Quilting Fabric Fat Quarter

Inspired by an antique Wild Goose Chase quilt in my collection, the fabrics date from the early 1800s to around 1850. The colorful blocks are framed by wide cheddar sashing that immediately called to mind the Gold Rush era of the late 1840s, with all the hopes, dreams, and hard work the lure of riches encompassed. Building on that one aspect of our history, Hope is the name of every woman who ventured forth, leaving her home for a dream of a better life. Whether she went alone, followed a husband, or a father, Hope’s Journey comes alive to celebrate the pioneer spirit of those women. With adventure, courage, and perseverance, these women faced every challenge on their journey to the unknown.

This fat quarter is approximately 18" x 22" in 100% top quality quilt cotton.
