Susan B. Anthony was arrested for voting in 1872
As the First Lady said: We take it for granted today that a woman can be nominated for President by
a major political party.
Let's not. I hope we are drinking champagne, eating ice cream out of the carton and planning how we can carry on the dreams of Susan B. Anthony, Alice Paul and all the others who worked for this day.
Make a quilt!
Here's what you need for your 2016 patchwork:
Hillary Clinton fabric.
Hamilton---The Quilt (detail) by Georgann Eglinski, 2016
Georgann has been working on this quilt with a Hewson panel, listening to Hamilton The Musical and reading an Alexander Hamilton biography. All so 2016! (If not 1816)
Where'd she get that Hillary Clinton 2106 campaign print?
I Photoshopped it. I did two different prints.
This one is a little portrait that says....
2016 on a star background
I also colored it in tan too. Print either of these 8-1/2" x 11"
JPGs on treated fabric and you can include them in
your 2016 quilts.
I also created a double portrait of
Susan B Anthony and Hillary R Clinton.
These sheets are both 8-1/2" x 11"
My inspiration was this jugate portrait fabric ( political collectors' jargon for double portrait) of George Washington and Benjamin Harrison, printed for the 1888 election.
Here's what I am working on.
The star center is cut to fit the 8-1/2" x 11" sheet. (Star finishes to 8-1/2")
Do remember you can print these out in different sizes
and if you have some photo enhancing skills you could
change the colors to match the quilt you are working on.
A little Photoshopping on an old motto
