    Sunbonnet Sue California?

    Hello,

    I was wondering if there is such thing as a pattern for a Sunbonnet Sue quilt California themed?

    I have seen Texas, Alaska and Kansas.

    Does anyone know of a pattern for California?

    Thanks,

    I don't know of a pattern but you get some good suggestions on QB if you draft your own. I suggest SBS on a surf board, SBS at the Hollywood sign....

    Thanks Tartan. I didn't think of that, but those two are perfect.

    It could also be in the snow. Here in So Cal we have Big Bear Mountain.

    And with a bear, which is the symbol of Cali's flag.

    So we have four blocks so far.

    1. Hollywood
    2. Surfing
    3. in Bear Bear
    4. with California's flag bear.

    keep ideas coming.... thanks!

    A winery
    LA skyline or air port symbol
    Space shuttle at museum
    Crowed Freeway
    Disneyland,
    A representation of the varioeus crops grown in CA, that would be a quilt in itself
    Military bases
    The Sultan Sea
    The bridge accross th Sacramento River
    Sea Lions
    Harbors, beaches
    Brea Tar PIts
    Art Colonies
    Pebble beach golf course
    Malibou's Merry go round
    Joshau Trees in the desert
    Spanish Missions
    I-5
    Sports teams
    The USS Midway
    Small fishing town
    Gold mine
    Orange grove

    I do not live in Ca, but have visited many times in various areas of the state

    What about an earthquake split in the ground, SBS on the red carpet, or in a vinyard.

    I have never been a Sunbonnet Sue fan - but reading all of these suggestions could make me a convert. I especially would like to see Sue drinking a glass of wine.
