100th Anniversary of New York and US Women's Suffrage
by Patricia Foote
Patricia entered her block in the 2020 Quilt Project:
Stitching Together Women's Suffrage...
...the Susan B. Anthony House Museum's ongoing quilt block
project to celebrate the 2020 centennial anniversary
of the 19th Amendment guaranteeing American women the Right to Vote.
Susan B Anthony Dollar, Kenneth Dardenne
The project's been going on for a while. The deadline has passed for blocks to be displayed this year but they continue to accept entries for future exhibits. See a link to the project here:

Contrary Wife dedicated to Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Emilie Monefeldt
"The 2020 Quilt is designed so that each new block may be attached to the growing quilt with ribbons. The 2020 Quilt may be complete with one block or with hundreds of blocks. It is anticipated that the Quilt will be displayed in community centers, libraries, schools, or other public places on request. The whole 2020 Quilt or specific sections may be displayed from time to time. Each individual quilt block will be able to stand out on its own AND mesh wonderfully with the other quilt squares. Each block will tell a story in a unique and creative way."

The blocks will be tied with ribbons and the piece made as large or small as the show space dictates.
