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 Quiltscalled 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---
