A Fryer Family Sunbonnet~#6

Not much time this Christmas week for research, so I thought I would show you a Fryer Family Quilt. During the 1930's, Mrs. Ella Fryer made a quilt for each of her 5 sons. This is the one she made for my father-in-law, Jim. It is strange to me that she chose not only a SunBonnet quilt for him, but a PINK one.
Each Sunbonnet dress is made from a different feedsack print with a matching solid bonnet, sleeve, and shoes.


She outlined each piece with a black embroidery running stitch.














The border is great shown on the corner of the quilt.


More next week--thanks for following Sunbonnet Sue Sunday.
One more pic shows the quilt backing---~~~~

What a great quilt. I'm like you -- wonder what made her choose SunBonnet Sue and pink for a boy? Maybe it was all the fabric she had at the time -- pink! It doesn't really matter tho; it was made out of love and I'm sure he loved it as much as you do!

Now you have me curious! I have a Sue block my Grandmother did that was given to me after she passed away. I have to go find it and see if she has a history :)
