    Terrific idea! I, too, make my quilts to "be used".

    My first quilt was just a scrap patchwork quilt of 5 inch squares - it was actually a kit I got a Woolworth's for $1.00 back in 1975. The fabric was not the best as you can well imagine and it was all hand sewn and then tied with yarn, so the fabric gives way from time to time and I just put a patch over the seams so keep it going. It is funny looking but my daughter loves it and it covers a bed from 1860. I wish I had thought of something as cute as a Sun Bonnet Sue. She would have been so cute.

    I did a few seams in coordinated cream thread of stepped zig zag stitch over them but this one was way needed more than that

    As I had a couple of samples from my Patchwork Class lessons I appliquéd a Sun Bonnet Sue's wandering thro' Grandma's garden, as I think this quilt will need ongoing attention this could become a theme, so this is what I came up with:

    It certainly looks strong and IMO really pretty and as, because of the way it has been painstakingly made with beautiful loving patience by someone I want it to live for a long time.

    Umm but is it me is Sue looking as tho' she is on a snowball
