Grandmother's Choice BOW

I have lots of other quilts on my to do list ;) so this is the final block I will make, I would like a strippy lap quilt and only need 15 sampler blocks. I have really enjoyed making these each week and reading about women's suffrage around the world. Barbara's wonderful BOW will continue for several more weeks and has it's own blog http://grandmotherschoice.blogspot.co.uk/

This Block is named Mother's Delight and is named for Christabel Pankhurst, perhaps one of the most famous suffragettes.

 I just need to decide on which fabrics to use for the setting stripes and backing. I think I might use this stencil which looks a bit like a chain to hand quilt in the stripes, representing all the women jailed during the suffrage movement.

I still have to decide on the final layout and arrange the blocks to spread the colours evenly throughout the quilt. My design is still a work in progress lol! I should end up with a lap quilt about 54" x 52"


  1. I can see you like purple and green :)

    Merry Christmas!
