Grandmother's Choice BOW #13 Done!


So this is Barbara Brackman's Grandmother's Choice BOW block #13 called Everybody's Favorite.  The pattern and history lesson to accompany can be found here.

This is an exercise in learning more about the fight for Women's Right to Vote as well as an exercise for me personally to try to like purple more...nope, even after 13 blocks...purple's still not my thing, lol!  

I went with this color scheme to mimic the American colors for Women's Suffrage...gold, purple and white.  The fabrics are playing nice together but there is sure a lot of purple here...I will show the first two rows complete and together after we do number 14 this weekend.  Then there will be 5 more rows to go, still easily do-able to catch up and join us as we are only on 13 of 49 total blocks.

I think your fabric choices really are good. Maybe all the purple isn't coming thru in the photo, but you are balancing things out nicely with the white.
