I am keeping up with the suffragette's blocks from Barbara Brackman's blog (here) and have three more finished to show you:
|18. Cheyenne: Wyoming Firsts|
|19. Old Maid's Ramble: Desperate Walkers|
|20. Memory Wreath: Emily Wilding Davison|
The 21st block is an appliqued parasol. The women used their parasols with messages printed on them (such as "Vote for Women") to further the cause. It will be fun to make that block this week. Thanks Barbara Brackman for all the historical information, and the block fun.
