    Sun Bonnet Sue

    Have you made a Sun Bonnet Sue? I'm working on my first Sun Bonnet Sue lap quilt. Thought it would be a fairly simple quilt to make - Boy I was wrong. There is so much detail to making these little boys and girls.
    I'm looking forward to seeing the end result. It has been a great way to use up scraps.

    Did Holly Hobby change her name, or is Sue a distant cousin?

    I've made a couple then gave up and put them aside for a later project. I've wanted to make my own Sun Bonnet Sue quilt for so long ... it will just have to wait. Good luck to you for your perserverance!
    Make it a scrappy happy day!

    I used Eleanor Burn's book, Sun Bonnet Sue Visits Quilt in A Day, http://www.amazon.com/Quilt-Day-Sunb...quilt+patterns and the interfacing that can be bought with the cut outs printed on it. I am a beginning quilter and it wasn't to hard to make. I made it as Christmas gift for my oldest DD a couple years ago. I will have to take a picture of it soon.

    I made two, actually one, I set old vintage blocks with sashing and borders (I took it with me as a comfort when my mother passed and left it accidentally in a motel in Okla) and now another one that is almost finished. If you put your own details on the girls, it becomes more interesting. I sewed buttons on the shoes and flowers and ribbons on the bonnets. I tried to locate the quilt in Okla but, of course, nobody had seen it.

    I've been trying to think of something to do with 30's fabrics, and right now a Sunbonnet Sue is a top choice. We had a guild speaker who just came out with a re-edition of an old Sunbonnet Sue pattern, where the bonnets of the Sues are different types of flowers.
