So I am caught up with the Grandmother's Choice QAL and just finished ROW 3. There will be a total of 49 blocks and we have now finished 21...only 28 more to go!! Above you will see my simplified Parasol which I designed in EQ6 and paper pieced...I thought that it fit better with the overall style of the blocks that I have been making than the pattern Barbara presented here.
Here is my quilt so far...
I also changed block #19, Old Maid's Ramble to a diamond which I thought kind of resembles the Jane Austen quilt....ok, not really but I'm working with an 8" square, people!! Lol! Barbara mentions Jane in the history lesson on #19 so I just couldn't resist trying to get her in there.
I really suggest even if you choose not to make this quilt it is worthwhile to visit Barbara's blog and read the history lessons on Women Fighting For the Right to Vote...lots of fascinating information.
