Grandmother's Choice Blocks in a 4 x 4 quilt setting.  I wonder what 50 blocks will look like.


Grandmother's Choice Block 16 Capital T

We are now on Block 16.  It's been a challenge to do a block each week, but I'm having fun and learning some history while I'm at it. 


The "T" stands for temperance.  To learn more about the temperance movement and Sarah Pallet, visit http://grandmotherschoice.blogspot.com/


The block can be found on EQ as Capital T.  It's also on Blockbase No. 1662b and 1662c.  I modified it a bit by filling in the triangle at the bottom, making it more of a T 


The fabric for the block came from my stash.  It's been really a challenge to use up what I have and not buy a fat quarter here and there.

Block 13, 14. and 15

Blocks 13, 14, and 15

No. 13.  Everybody's Favorite:  Universal Suffrage  

The 13th Block in the Series is hand pieced.  The 14th Block was foundation and hand pieced as was the 15th.  I've continued to use only fabrics from my stash.  Universal Suffrage was a modification of Block Base 2112.  

Block 14 (Blockbase 1850) is also known as double wrench or monkey wrench.

Block 15 is Blockbase 2899
No. 14.  Brides Knot: Invisable Woman

No. 15.  Centennial:  New Zealand's Victory
