Flower Friday: July 3, 2020

Greetings everyone!  I just want to remind you that submissions for the Suffrage Centennial Quilt Challenge are due tomorrow.  Just email us a photo of the quilt you want to submit and a brief explanation of your quilt. The email is 

But it's a pandemic---so if you need a few more days, just email me and let me know and we will work something out.  Our original deadline was to give Beth and I time while traveling and giving lectures.

It's Flower Friday!!!  Today we celebrate the brave women who fought for our right to vote by sharing photographs of flowers that are all the colors of the suffrage movement:  yellow, purple, and white flowers!

Betsy sent in this very appropriate orchid:
Isn't it lovely?

From Joanne's garden:
The yellow rose was the official flower of the suffrage movement!

Joanne shared that the above photo doesn't do her Asiatic lily justice--the inside of the flower is a more purple than red.

Annie sent in her rudbeckia which is starting to bloom:
Next week we will be featuring Lorraine B's garden!!!
In the meantime, if you want your yellow, white, and/or purple flowers (or ones you see as you take walks, etc)  featured on Flower Fridays, please email a photo to

Have a safe and happy day!
