This wonderful kit includes fabrics from the Harriet's Handwork fabric collection by Moda Fabrics and a detailed pattern to make a pieced and appliquéd Gather Around quilt, designed by Bits 'N Pieces Pattern Company.

The lovely colors and reproduction prints of the Harriet’s Handwork fabric collection were inspired by millworker and suffragette Harriet Hanson Robinson (1825-1911), and by an antique quilt dating to 1820-1840 in designer Betsy Chutchian's collection.

Harriet began working in a textile mill in Lowell, Massachusetts at the age of 10 to help support her widowed mother and family. Her job was to exchange full bobbins with empty ones on the spinning looms, for which she earned $2.00 a week. Harriet worked at the mill until she married, and in her later years, she actively participated in the Women’s Suffrage Movement.

Kit includes all fabrics needed to make the quilt top and binding.
Requires 3.5 yards of backing fabric (not included).
Finished Quilt Size: 54 x 54 inches
