Grandmother's Choice 

Block No. 8:  Rocky Road to Kansas - 1912

Within an American Magazine article of the time:  Getting Out the Vote by Helen Todd, Ms Todd relates the story of a plains woman impressed by the idea that if women could vote there would be "bread for all and flowers too". 

The flower is appliqued on the center block.  Rather than use Block Base, I made the block in EQ7 using Easy Draw + Patch Draw.  I strip pieced the star points and then hand pieced it all together.  The beige background represent home baked bread.
