New Block of the Week

Barbara Brackman is starting another block-of-the-week (BOTW) TOMORROW.  It’s “To recall the fight for women’s rights” and the blocks will be released on Saturdays on the blog Grandmother’s Choice.   The main colors chosen by suffrage groups in England, Australia and America were purple, green, white or gold.   Barbara says, “America’s primary suffrage color was gold, often contrasted with black or dark violet. The shade is close to the yellow-orange we see in 19th-century quilts, the color the dyers called chrome orange and we call cheddar.”  Hmmmmm, I’ve been wanting to use cheddar in a quilt and this might be the perfect opportunity 🙂
