Grandmother's Choice BOW block 1 finished

So excited for this Block of the Week to Recall the Fight for Women's Rights to start!!  The first block is called Grandmother's choice and the pattern can be found on Barbara Brackman's new blog here.  The blocks finish at 8 inches and I am using gold and dark purple as Barbara has indicated those would reflect the coloring of signage and promotional materials for the American Women's Right to Vote movement.
This block went together quickly and so far I am happy with how my chosen fabrics are "playing" with each other.  It's worth looking at these posts whether you want to make the blocks with us or not (though I hope you do!) because of all the history Barbara includes.

Happy September!
