Ms Brackman's new BOW will be starting on September 1st, 2012 so... if you want to join in, you may want to start assembling your fabrics. Suggestions are on the BOW blog where the blocks will be posted each week.
The theme for this BOW is women's suffrage and Ms Brackman will be including history of the movement as well as photos from the period.
