GRANDMOTHER'S CHOICE BLOCK 3: UNION SQUARE

This week's Grandmother's Choice block is Union Square.  It is used to represent the "processions" women organized, first in England, and a few years later in the USA, to make their needs known.  Nowadays, it is common to have marches for social change, but it was a new idea at the time.  The women carried signs and wore coordinating colors.

We are having a dark, rainy day here, and I think that influenced my color choices this week.  None of the darks in my palette grabbed my attention today.  I went from medium gold to lights.  It looks festive to me, as the women would have been, processing through the streets.

There's a link to this BOW about Women's Suffrage and the right to vote on my side bar.

Block looks great.
Be thankful for the cooling rain... it is blistering here in Calif and everyone is wilting from the heat! Just call me "wuss".
