    Hi, my name is Maria Stephenson and I am venturing onto the path of making my own quilts. I happened upon this site simply because I was looking for certain patterns that I am having a rough time trying to find. One is of a southern belle. I am talking with hoop skirt, bonnet and parasol. The other is of the quilt I saw on the front page I believe that has three purple flowers in each square. I may have to clarify that one since it sort of disappeared on me as I was jumping through the hoops to register here! ;)

    Here is a picture of the quilt of flowers I saw. Would love the pattern to it. I don't have many patterns to share myself. But once I do, and someone asks for something I have, I will be more than happy to share.

    Hi and welcome to the board from Southern California! Sorry, I don't have the pattern for the purple applique flowers, but it is beautiful. I know I have seen the southern bell girls-similar to a Sunbonnet Sue-I will look thru my magazines and books to find it. Just found it-is it called "Umbrella Girl"-I found the pattern in Leisure Art's "Encyclopedia of Classic Quilt Patterns".

    they have a pattern called "umbrella girl" in the book... Encyclopedia of classic quilt patterns. (101all time favorites) it looks like the southern belle you described. it's a leisure arts publication. isbn #9780848724740. you might be able to borrow this book from your library or try to check it out in a local bookstore or online at amazon. hope this helps.

    Hi Maria!

    I'm a novice as well, I haven't taken any classes, and I'm kinda self taught. Quilting is great fun. Good luck. :)

    I have the Umbrella Girl pattern. It is in "Sunbonnet Sue's Neighborhood" by Oxmoor House. It is a small magazine size book I found at Joann's. I look the book. It has Overall Sam, Indian Girls, Rag Dolls, Fisherman Fred, Windblown Girl, and several Sunbonnet Sue patterns. I am from Georgia and it is HOT here. Good time to stay inside and sew.
