These SunBonnet Sue Sundays sure do come around fast! This Sunday I will show you some more recent quilts and blocks. In 1997 I owned a quilt shop where I live. My mother made this quilt as a sample for my shop. As you can see, she is a great quilter.
From a book by

Little Quilts
called Wildflowers.

This quilt below is a panel. I used it to practise the machine quilting that looks like hand quilting. I was really happy with the way it looked, but never used it on another quilt. I think I just was not confident enough that it would look good on a bigger quilt.

This is a quilt block on a quilt that was made by me. Two friends and I each made a quilt that included the same blocks in our own choice of fabrics. A couple of the blocks were different in that in one position we each made "our favorite block". In another position in the quilt we made

a basket block, each of our choice. Another block was our own choice in an applique block. This was one of the most fun quilts I have ever made. I am getting off the subject, aren't I. I will have to post about my garden quilt another time. As you can see, my Sunbonnet Sue block had a garden theme as she is holding ivy in her hand. I am not for certain, But I am thinking that this is the only Sunbonnet Sue block that I have ever made myself. Actually I have never been a real fan of her. I am much more interested since I have learned so much about her origin. I especially like the SBS's who wear the old fashion attire. More the Holly Hobby type.

Wait--I think I know my favorite SBS---

Molly, I really enjoy your SBS posts. I've not been a big fan of SBS either, but find this very interesting. I may just have to add SBS to my list of things "to do". Love that quilt your Mom made for the shop and the western theme SBS is just too cute!
