I have chosen to make my blocks in the colours adopted by the British Women's Social and Political Union (WSPU) which were Purple, White & Green, representing Dignity, Purity & Hope.
The WSPU was the leading militant organisation campaigning for women's suffrage in the UK. It was founded by Emmeline & Christabel Pankhurst and was the first whose members were known as suffragettes.
I have been reading the biographies of the Pankhursts along with some of the history surrounding the women's campaign for equal rights in the UK.
I have 11 blocks completed so far, I don't know how many I will make, probably just enough for a lap quilt, I am also still undecided on the final layout. I will wait until I have a few more made and then decide.
