Default Help me identify this pattern, please!

I am a new quilter, even at 65 or is it 66!! Even so, my sister has had these quilt squares (30 of them) in a cedar chest of our Grandmother. There were 2 different patterns, the first I know as Sunbonnet Sue but have not a clue what this pattern is. I am new to the forum and hopefully I can get the picture on here. Would appreciate any help as to name of pattern and possibly when it was popular. We are thinking early 40s. Also, how would you quilt them?? What color sashing, etc? Thinking vintage material with a small flower and different colors, but am definitely open to suggestions!!

What a treasure to have.
I don't know the pattern name, other than adorable!

Age? ... looks typical of the things my Mother had from when she was married in 1939

I would sash them with reproduction 30's prints. Very cute!

I don't know how old the pattern is, my DM made it for my DD in 1982. She called it the cuipee doll quilt, don't know if that is the right name. It is a very cute quilt.

Default Must have been popular.

I had about 85 of these 1/2 boys and 1/2 girls. The embroidery was not done but the applique is excellent. I modified the facial features and put the girls together with strips of reproduction fabric for the period which is probably 1935 or newer I think. I added some more detail to make a sleeve show up. I just assumed it was another version of Sunbonnet Sue. Yet another work in progress.
