63 Suffragist of Color shares including Native American, Latin Americans, Asians and others. The ratification of the 19th Amendment to the Constitution in 1920 allowed white women in the US to vote, but it was not until the Voting Rights Act of 1965 that blacks were ensured their voting rights. Suffragist are at work today to ensure that all Americans can use their right to vote. The foundation is mainly cotton fabic pleated in a tessellated pattern with machine stitching, applique and quilting. The applique of the suffragettes covers the orderly geometric pleated and stitched pattern and is symbolic of unseen paths these women travelled. The lower portion of the quilt contains a listing of the featured 63 suffragist, and a few select quotes. On the quilts reverse side is a Suffragists of Color Timeline dating from 1792 to today. Fabric of the 63 Suffragists of Color is available in my surface design shop at https://www.spoonflower.com/profiles/quilterscomfort_. https://quilterscomfort.com
