Suffrage in 48

45″ x 44″
Pieced by Sue Hickman       Berryville, Va       7/2011

Throughout the Civil War, another war was waged behind the scenes, the struggle for the right of women to vote.
First perilously proposed in the United States in July 1848 at the Women’s Rights Convention, it wasn’t until August, 1920 that the 19th Amendment to the Constitution was signed into law giving women in all 48 states the right to vote.
This traditional block pattern was first published in 1884 as “Sawtooth” in the publication “Farm & Fireside”.

This quilt won a Blue Ribbon at the Clarke County Fair in August 2012.
This quilt also showed at the 2013 Northern Shenandoah Valley Quilt Show held biennially in Berryville, Va.

Blank note cards featuring this quilt are currently available for purchase in sets of four (4) for $12.00 by emailing Sue@Studio2724.com .
