Tea Box to Ballot Box
58 in(188 cm x 147 cm)
Suffragists protested at the centennial of the Boston Tea Party in 1873 with cries of "No taxation without representation." I designed this quilt as if it were a commemorative postage stamp depicting tea crates floating from Boston to Washington, DC, where they are transformed into a ballot box. The design celebrates the centennial of women's right to vote in 2020.
Cotton, acrylic paint
Machine pieced, hand appliqued, stenciled, hand quilted
