Barbara Brackman's new block of the week Grandmother's Choice: Votes for Women kicked off yesterday with the posting of the first block: Grandmother's Choice! In addition to interesting history of the fight for women's rights, including cool photos... Ms Brackman posted four versions of this block for us to
This is my first block, done in the Art Nouveau line by Blank Quilting (2009), which has been maturing in my stash.
The fabric selection part of making this block was the hardest. I have a limited selection of fabrics... six prints and four solids... and it was tough. I almost threw in the towel but that deeply ingrained steak of determination (aka: stubbornness) prevented me.
I am planning on making two blocks each week... one from this line of fabrics and a second from my stash of 1930s repro fabrics.
This ought to help keep me off the streets and out of trouble...
PS - You can check out the blocks others are making on the Grandmother's Choice Flickr group!
