Once again, Betsy Chutchian, award-winning quiltmaker and author of Gone to Texas, lets us in her great-great grandmother's life and shares more of her journals written over a 25-year period from 1857 to 1882 stories that capture the spirit of life on the Texas prairie. Included are 14 projects inspired by Lizzie's writing that illustrate pioneer life friendship, chores, the help and guests, insects and pastimes.

Betsy Chutchian developed a passionate interest in fabric, quilts, sewing and history as a child. Learning to sew on her grandmother's treadle sewing machines and her aunt's 1940s Singer paved the way to quiltmaking.
When she graduated in 1980 from the University of Texas at Arlington, she received an antique quilt top made by her paternal great-grandmother and great-aunt and taught herself to quilt. She began teaching quiltmaking in 1990.
Chutchian's first book with The Kansas City Star was Gone to Texas, Quilts from a Pioneer Woman's Journal. She is co-author of History Repeated, Block Exchange Quilts by the 19th Century Patchwork Divas. Chutchian is co-founder of the Patchwork Divas. Her first fabric line debuted in 2010.
She lives in Grand Prairie, Texas, with her husband.
