START



Today after church I started getting ready for my Grandmother's Choice BOM.  Step one, select fabrics.  Gold and black or gold and deep violet were often the colors used for suffrage banners, etc., in the United States.  To be true to the cause for the quilt, I've washed and pressed this grouping, all from stash.  Looks like I might need a few more mediums, but we'll see.  The gold of that era was more what we call cheddar today.  I think I'll look for more of that in my stash.  I'm sure my CW bin must have some.






The BOW just started yesterday.  Maybe I can keep up.  That would be a first!  Here's a link in case you'd like to join along, or just read more about the struggle for women to vote, not only in America, but around the globe.

That is one fantastic group of prints, Pat! Good choices for a suffrage quilt. Aren't we glad to have the right to vote today?

I just love your selection of fabrics, Pat. I guess I'm going to have to go over and check out this block of the week. Did you see that Gay from Sentimental Stitches is offering her Sally Post blocks free to go along with the pieced blocks? It should be a neat quilt.
