Our goal is to create an item of collaborative textile art that honors women’s history, particularly in relation to the woman’s suffrage movement and the people, places, events, and issues that are related to it. This “2020 Quilt” celebrates the Centennial Anniversary of the 19th Amendment to the United States Constitution that granted women the right to vote in 1920.
The 2020 Quilt is designed so that each new block may be attached to the growing quilt with ribbons. The 2020 Quilt may be complete with one block or hundreds of blocks. It is anticipated that the Quilt will be publicly displayed in community centers, libraries, schools, or other public places on request. The whole 2020 Quilt or specific sections may be displayed from time to time. Each individual quilt block will be able to stand out on its own AND mesh wonderfully with the other quilt squares. Each block will tell a story in a unique and creative way.
The best part? Any person, group, or organization may create a block for the 2020 Quilt.
