is posting a free block pattern "to recall the fight for women's rights".   The first free pattern (Block 1) is  called Grandmothers Choice, but you may know it by other names..(Duck and Ducklings).

I will be participating by sewing a block a week to honor all the women who fought so hard to get us to where we are now.  Each week I'll post my progress.

I love the color green so I may do the  50 blocks in some shade of green.  Each block is 8" square finished.  Here's my first attempt.  I made two.  I paper pieced this block, making a pattern with EQ7.  The pattern is available on

The recommendation is an 8" block, but you can make this any size you want.  Colors are also recommended but you know we quilters always do our thing.

If you would like to participate, you may also post your finished blocks on Flickr
