Looks like a good reference book about women in history as well as the quilt blocks.

I bet that is a lovely piece of social history - had the conversation with my son recently about women not having the vote and he was appalled.

Love the idea of suffrage movement being commemorated in a "women's thrift craft" like quilting - feels really connected to women in the past to me.
