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.
