SUNBONNET SUE SUNDAY #9

Well, Sunbonnet Sunday has rolled around again. I am toying with limiting these posts to once a month as my quilts will not last through the year if I keep going as I am. If you have a Sunbonnet quilt or Block that you would like for me to include in my series of posts, I would love for you to send it to me. You will find my email address in my profile. For this week I am posting websites that have particularly interesting information. I am looking forward to hearing from you soon!

I found this site~~

An Apple Pie by Kate Greenaway, where you can actually read this book. It is amazing.

Then go by and read,

The Sunbonnet Babies in Holland, illistrations by Bertha Corbett. These are great books on line to read to your children or grandchildren. Vintage books are just as good as a history lesson. Don't mis this. Especially the first one!

This is a pattern of SunBonnet "MOLLY" that came out in the 1930s. The flower is called a Posey. I love it!! You can ALMOST see her face. I can imagine a nose tip just about to show.


This is a pattern that appears in one of my Mom's magazines of the 1980s. I think it is an unusual one.




A block that mother made and never put into a quilt. My sister framed it along with some vintage sewing supplies a few years ago. I think this is my favorite of all the blocks my mom made.


If you are interested in collecting Sunbonnet Vintage patterns, you should check on Ebay. Look here----
