Betsy Chutchian developed a passionate interest in fabric, quilts, sewing and history as a child. After graduation from the University of Texas at Arlington in 1980, Betsy received an antique quilt top made by her paternal great-grandmother and great-aunt. It was then that she taught herself to quilt.
Betsy began teaching for organizations and quilt shops 1990 and she continues to share her passion for quiltmaking and reproducing 19th Century quilts. She is the author of numerous books – her latest being Hope’s Journey - others include: Gone to Texas, Quilts from a Pioneer Woman’s Journal, Lizzie’s Legacy and Just Treats, No Tricks with Kansas City Star, and Classic and Heirloom Quilts with It’s Sew Emma. She also co-authored History Repeated, Block Exchange Quilts by the 19th Century Patchwork Divas and Treasury of Quilts. Betsy is also the co-founder of the 19th Century Patchwork Divas, a block exchange group dedicated to 1800’s reproduction fabric.
Betsy’s passion for fabric, fabric study, and antique quilts has led her to design fabric with Moda – which isn’t far from Grand Prairie, Texas, where she lives with her husband Steve and a couple of cats.
