Oops, sorry. I went out for the day yesterday and did not get my post up before the end of the weekend.
The block seems a little oddball to me. Is the center square the knot in the bowtie? How many bowties do you see in my block - one or two?
Since Teddy Roosevelt was a big and bold fellow I felt like making a block that was bold while also having a feminine angle to it (use of the flowers) to portray that he was a supporter of giving women the right to vote.
I really did not try to make a left handed photo when most everyone else went with the right tilt - there was a reason at the time.
The photo taking is sometimes more difficult than the block making!
