Colleen's Grandmothers Choice



Colleen Yarnell of North Carolina brought her Grandmother's Choice sampler with her four years ago when she voted. It was so cold she was glad to have it to keep her warm in more ways than one. She followed the 2012 Block of the Week we did to recall women's fight to vote.


She plans to have a new version of the blocks celebrating the women's suffrage battle to take with her this year when she goes to vote.


She asked quilters from around the world to send her blocks finishing to 6".

As Michelle Obama told us: Pack a lunch (and a quilt to keep you warm) on November 3rd.

For the Centennial of Women's Suffrage in the U.S. we are re-posting the blocks for the Grandmother's Choice quilt. We're up to Block 42 of 49 this year. Check out Facebook page here: Ask to join:

For this year's quilt Julie Willis is doing a Wild Women version.

A GREAT SPELL CASTER (DR. EMU) THAT HELP ME BRING BACK MY EX GIRLFRIEND.
Am so happy to testify about a great spell caster that helped me when all hope was lost for me to unite with my ex-girlfriend that I love so much. I had a girlfriend that love me so much but something terrible happen to our relationship one afternoon when her friend that was always trying to get to me was trying to force me to make love to her just because she was been jealous of her friend that i was dating and on the scene my girlfriend just walk in and she thought we had something special doing together, i tried to explain things to her that her friend always do this whenever she is not with me and i always refuse her but i never told her because i did not want the both of them to be enemies to each other but she never believed me. She broke up with me and I tried times without numbers to make her believe me but she never believed me until one day i heard about the DR. EMU and I emailed him and he replied to me so kindly and helped me get back my lovely relationship that was already gone for two months.
