GRANDMOTHER'S CHOICE: ALICE'S FLAG

This week's block  for the Grandmother's Choice quilt is Alice's Flag.  It is reminiscent of the flag Alice Paul made.  She used three panels, and then added an askew star every time a state ratified voting for women.  The 19 amendment had been introduced in the late 1800/s, and was brought up again and again at every session.  What the women wanted was a national ammendment that would allow all women in the USA the right to vote, as state by state ratification of the 19th amendment was so slow.

Very Nice!. We owe a lot to our women ancestors for their fight and perseverance. I can't wait to see the finished project.
