    I've made several. only found three pics.
    one was PP six inch ones. i had not done PP before so i made my own templates and pieced them that way.
    i prefer doing larger ones and stitching with a blanket stitch.

    I made this as a consignment quilt. It is loosely based on the Quilt in a Day Sunbonnet Sue book.

    I made a real cute one years ago but it got away from me. 1930s windy day pattern. Currently I am working on a Sunbonnet Witch Halloween quilt which is turning out great but I kind of regret starting a big one and hand stitching. It's in 3rd place on my to finish list.

    I do love Sue, but it's only on my list of future projects. All the pictures are great! Enjoy seeing your work.

    Yes I do make Sunbonnet Sue quilt blocks. As a matter of fact I have a Sunbonnet Sue king size quilt that I need to get quilted. I love the Sunbonnet Sues. The orginal ones. I do not like the ones that everyone is making now like KILL Sunbonnet Sue.

    Yes, I have made a Sunbonnet Sue Quilt that turned out better than I thought. Once I get to know what I'm doing, I will post pictures.

    The very first quilt blocks I ever made were Sunbonnet Sue! My dear sweet aunt taught me how to make them the summer I stayed with her prior to entering the 7th grade. Get this, they were made out of double-knit polyester fabrics my aunt had used to make pantsuits (remember those!!!??) for herself and my grandmother!!! :lol: :lol: :lol: At least I didn't have to worry about the edges raveling!!! I never did finish those blocks, and I STILL have them!!! Some are pinned to the white background fabric! They are so-o-o-o badly stitched, but I love them anyway!!

    I know there are so many people who abhor Sunbonnet Sue, but I really love her! There are several variations, and you can do "dress" her in so many different ways. I always liked the blocks that had embroidered flowers, animals, etc. in the background. I have two books on Bonnet Ladies that I would really like to do. They're a bit like Sunbonnet Sue all grown up! ;)

    Edit: np3, it's been a lot longer than 25 years for me!!!!! :shock: :shock: :lol: :lol:
