A national celebration of the Centennial would be ideal but those in charge do not seem interested in celebrating women's right to vote. States and local organizations had many events scheduled before the pandemic but parades and other public events are on cautionary hold.
You might want to celebrate the anniversary yourself with a quilt or a scrap of fabric in a quilt you are working on this year.
Here's a celebratory grid that you could print out on pre-treated fabric cut 8-1/2 x 11 inches.
One Way to Print:
Create a word file or a new empty JPG file that is 8-1/2" x 11".
Click on the image above.
Right click on it and save it to your file.
Print that file out 8-1/2" x 11" on pre-treated fabric.
The grid with dots is drawn from a shirting print done in 1876 for
the Centennial anniversary of the Declaration of Independence.
The document print
I also designed three other Suffrage Centennial Prints you can buy at Spoonflower. They'll print them to order.

5. I'll take this post down Thursday and let you know the lucky winner.
6.. I'll choose a winner by some random event. In the past it's been things like the first commenter named Barbara, the person who comments closest to noon, the first person who says the magic word---e.g. quilt.
See the links for all four on Spoonflower:

I am still working on the scale on this---They'll probably print a larger grid.
