Heroines Quilt III

This quilt is in honor of girls and their heroines everywhere. 

Every even year, we celebrate Women’s History Month by inviting submissions of girlhood heroines for our 31 Heroines of March project. 

Each day, a new heroine is featured on our blog with an image and short essay. Our goal is to create a virtual Heroines Quilt made up of our contributors’ stories. Here is Phase III of our virtual Heroines Quilt for 2014.  

Thank you to all who submitted this year. And special thanks to Katie Weidmann, who has wrangled everything into a beautiful presentation.

You can scroll through the Quilt in order or select random pictures to reveal the story behind the heroine—the choice is yours, so enjoy and be inspired!
