Little Boys Breeches

22 Nov

This week’s block to celebrate women’s rights is Little Boys Breeches.  The blog talks about how controversial it was when women wanted to wear pants.  I never knew “bloomers” was a word from a woman’s last name who advocated wearing pants!

Four pairs of red pants radiating from a center block.

Hallelujah for hand piecing on this block!
