    Was it appliqued or embroidered? It might be the parasol ladies or vintage ladies. Sorry, not much help.

    sounds like this might be the pattern?

    I'll look some more to see if I can find a pattern to make one.

    Check out this site. It has victorian ladies of all types. Even whole town scenes. This is my "some day" quilt idea.

    I found the following online, which is a book by Darlene Zimmerman:

    http://books.google.com/books?id=gXu...age&q=&f=false

    or http://tinyurl.com/yzdz7lq . Scroll down to see the quilt.

    You can look inside that book at Amazon; the title is Granny Quilt Decor.

    and this book from AQS:

    Went to your site and shouldn't! Did you see the kitty wall hanging? Really adorable! :D

    Thanks for sharing this site. I have the book "Ladies Day Out with the Bonnet Girls" by Helen Scott out from the library. Her applique is so detailed and clever. I don't know if I'll ever have the time or patience to make a Bonnet Girls quilt, but I do love looking at the pictures!

    Oh, I meant to add, there was a quilt in the PICTURES section with both Sunbonnet Sue and, I think, Parasol Lady. I don't recall who posted it, but if I remember correctly, her mother had made it for her. In fact, I think it was that quilt that caused me to get the Bonnet Girls book out from the library. I have to make a couple of phone calls, then I'll come back and look for it unless someone else finds it first.

    I love Sunbonnet Sue and would like to make SS quilts for my granddaughters, but they show absolutely no interest. I think she's too old fashioned for them. They do like the Parasol Ladies and Bonnet Girls, though. Maybe I should just make a four seasons SS wall hanging for myself. That shouldn't take forever and at least then I'll have made one.

    I couldn't wait to look for it and finally found it. Sulabug posted the pictures; her mom made it for her. I was wrong about the parasol ladies though, the ladies in this quilt aren't holding parasols, but they're beautiful. Overall Sam is also on the quilt along with Sunbonnet Sue. Now let's see if I can make a link to the pics; I haven't done that on here yet.

    If you can get to a public library you can likely borrow a book with these types of patterns . You can also go to half.com and get a good quilt book at a reasonable price!! Good luck!

    Last night was our quilt guild meeting - and the topic was memory quilts.
    One of the quilts seems very much like what you want.
    It was an old pattern, from the Kansas City Star (I think the newspaper), and they published a pattern regularly. Don't know if there is a book, or a site you can view those old patterns, or not, but at least maybe this gives you a "title" of sorts to search for. Good luck.

    middysmom,

    I PM'd Sulabug and asked her to check out this thread and respond if she knows where her mother got the pattern. If she can't help, I second the library option. I ran across the Bonnet Girls books while searching for a similar pattern, but I know I've seen books with patterns of other ladies, although I don't remember now which books or where I saw them. Our library belongs to a consortium so when searching for books I'm not just searching our library, but about 60 libraries in Ohio. One or more of the other libraries often has the book I want and I just reserve it, then they ship it to my library. And the nice thing is it's free. If I really like a particular book, I buy it on the internet, usually from Amazon.

    Good luck! I hope you find a pattern you like.

    Sandy

    Now, I found it!! :D My Mother's quilt patterns were made by this company. Look under Bonnet Relatives & you will find one pattern my Mom made & also one with her parasol. I hope this helps.
