    I have always loved Sunbonnet Sue, but haven't learned how to properly applique`yet. Last night I discovered an adorable sue pattern that is paper pieced.

    I think I still like the appliqued Sue more but for now this would make a cute wallhanging or baby quilt.

    How many of you have done a Sue quilt? I would love to see your photos.

    That's the pattern I used to make to greeting cards. I shrunk it down to be 2" finished.

    I used some Sunbonnet Sue and Bills for my grand daughter;s wedding present on the border of a grandmother's flower garden center. I had the characters doing the fun things the kids liked to do together.
