I did find on this site that the first known applique SBS was made by Marie Webster, was called Sunbonnet Lassies, and was published in the Ladies Home Journal Magazine in 1911.
Southern Belle embroidery was popular from 1920 until 1950s. Here is an example of stamped embroidery pattern typical of the time.
Below are photos of typical patterns used during this time.
Kellie, over at There's No Place Like Home is a SBS lover and collector. She has several quilts and I have permission to post two of them here to show you. The first is an Umbrella Sue---
The second one is a pattern that I have never seen--A SBS Profile--it was purchased in Canada.
I have one Colonial Girl quilt in my collection. It was made by my Great Grandmother Lamberth. My mother had it quilted for me in the first years of my marriage.
I hope you enjoyed this weeks post.
Have a great week.
