This week's block was also featured in the Civil War quilt (see my block for Roger and Laurie's quilt at this link.
This block is very different from that one. I chose to print my own fabric from a letter my grandmother wrote to my mother in her second semester at college in February, 1946. I tinted the photocopy green - the letter was written in pencil.
I cut my fabric to make sure the signature will show on the quilt The inspiration for the choice of block was England's National Union of Women's Suffrage Societies. Their colors were red and white. I chose the floral print with it's orangey-red as my nod to the theme.
