    I just finished two of the three sets of Sun Bonnet Sue blocks from the Sun Bonnet Sue swap last year. They are presents for my daughters who will be 51 and 52 this weekend.
    I have to do some work on the pictures I took of the calendar, will post later. Thought I had it figured out.

    I am glad to see pics from the swap! I was wondering what everyone did with them.

    Here is the second set. I made them into individual blocks with sleeves so the blocks can be changed each month and the callendar that hangs from the top bar can be changed also.
    I am going to making up kits that I will be selling at my quilt quild's quilt show in April. The kits will have the bars for the blocks and calendar, cording, a pattern for the sleeve and directions on making the blocks. Some of my friends are trying to talk me into making individual blocks or sets with the 'hardware (bars and cords and sleeeves)' and perhaps a calendar.

    This is the kit that I will be making. There will be a pattern for the sleeve and directions for adjusting the cords.
