Frauenrechtequilt: Women's Rights Quilt

Regina from Germany has sent photos of her two pieced samplers
made from a Block of the Week I designed about 5 years ago.

Mary Britton's label

Grandmother's Choice had 36 blocks chosen for their relationship to women's right to vote and a separate blog address:

Regina has created a website for German quilters to celebrate the 100th anniversary of women's voting rights in Germany in 2018 with an index to each pattern.

Her Layout

She also has a blog with her progress on her two quilts:

Lavonna made one for her son

Mary Martha's

Regina did two versions

Sandy put a frame around each block


Thanks to Regina for translating my stories and for doing the website with index. And congratulations on the German Centennial.

What a surprise to see my quilt ("Mary Martha's") on your posting. You probably found it on the Mary and Martha Tours blog site. It was completed in 2014 and I used only William Morris fabrics, most all of them from the British fabric company, Rose and Hubble. I named it "William Meets Barbara". Our tours in England included many William Morris sites. I recommend The William Morris Gallery in London to anyone interested in William Morris. Check out their web site if you can't visit in person.
Cheers, Martha
