Greetings! In 8 days we will be celebrating the ratification of the 19th Amendment!
According to the United States Constitution, if the House and the Senate pass an amendment to the Constitution, it then needs to get ratified by 3/4 of the states. In 1920, that meant that 36 states needed to ratify the amendment.
On August 18, 2020, the 36th state ratified the amendment. The 19th Amendment was signed into law on August 26. We'll be celebrating the great state of Tennessee later this week!
This final week, I'm posting some remaining articles and insights and we will have some celebratory quilts as well. One day this week, I'll post the entries to the competition. Next Tuesday we will be announcing the winners of the challenge!
This Friday is the last week of Suffrage themed Flower Fridays. If you have flowers of yellow, white, or purple that you want to share to honor our suffrage foremothers, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. You are welcome to send me any floral image you want to share after this Friday.
Getting to know you all has been one of the great joys of publishing this blog. Many of you have responded enthusiastically to the idea of the Bloom theme which will begin on August
17 24. I'm changing it to "Blooming Where We're Planted" because that is what we need to do during this pandemic.
Have a safe and happy day!
