Due:  October guild meeting

Judging and prizes:  Non-participants will be the challenge judges.  They will be given criteria for judging the quilts.  The winner will be awarded $25.00.  A drawing of remaining participants will result in another $25.00 prize.

Suffrage colors were green, purple and white (United Kingdom) or gold (USA).  The flower worn by the suffragettes was the yellow rose or sunflower. 

 

We hope you have some fun with this and it makes an interesting display at the quilt show.
