Grandmother's Choice BOW 14 done

This is Block number 14, Brides Knot, of Barbara Brackman's Block of the Week Grandmother's Choice commemorating the struggle towards women's right to vote.  The patterns can be found on her blog here.

And here are rows 1 and 2 completed...only 5 more rows to go!!
Sorry for the horrible photos, the weather around here has been unseasonably warm (and muddy) and rain has been in the forecast rather than December snow...easier on the car tires but not very scenic to look at...I think that if it wasn't for the somber nature of this QAL (and all these history lessons on what it meant to be a woman living in a time of few personal rights) I would have to start nicknaming this quilt Peanut Butter Jelly Time...the colors are really striking me that way as I make more and more blocks...I really think the quilt is coming out too dark even though I am using Kona Snow for most of the backgrounds but again, I guess it's fitting as we reflect on the lessons Barbara is sharing.

nice choices for this block. It struck me while I was making it that there were many different fabric combinations you could go with.

I really like your colors on this one. I think it will be a great quilt for fall to cuddle under once it starts getting cooler outside. That is if it ever gets cold again. It was 60° here in WI yesterday!
