I have been collaborating on a quilt with a woman named Marci whom I don't even know. Over the past year I published a block of the week on the topic of women's rights on my separate blog called Grandmother's Choice.
Each week I figured out a traditional pieced or appliqued design that represented a particular event, person or idea, such as the Carrie Nation block for the temperance movement.
Marci made a set of the patchwork blocks.
She likes crazy quilts too. She's taken the portraits I posted and printed them onto fabric.
And stitched a crazy block for each patchwork block in green, violet and white
the colors of England's WSPU (Women's Social and Political Union)
Using gold thread, another symbolic color.
She's also done blocks with pictures she's found in other places.
What a quilt this is going to be!
