2020 Quilt Project
In the years leading up to the Suffrage Centennial in 2020, the Anthony Museum set out to create an item of collaborative textile art that would honor women’s history—encouraging the use of themes that would touch on the woman’s suffrage movement and the people, places, events, and related issues. The now complete 2020 Quilt celebrates the Centennial Anniversary of the 19th Amendment to the United States Constitution that granted women the right to vote in 1920.
The 2020 Quilt was designed so that each new block submitted could be attached to the growing quilt with ribbons. The completed 2020 Quilt now has over 300 blocks, submitted from people all over the United States.
The 2020 Quilt is available for displayed in community centers, libraries, schools, or other public places on request. Each individual quilt block stands out on its own AND meshes wonderfully with the other quilt squares. Each block tells a story in a unique and creative way.
