    3 Sunbonnet Sue quilts

    My SIL's good friend had 30 Sunbonnet Sue blocks that her mother had appliqued. She's been carrying them around for years and finally decided to do something with them. She wanted 3 quilts for great-granddaughters of the maker. So I agreed to come up with something for her. I did the same layout for each, but with different fabric for the borders and sashing. Kind of outside my wheelhouse, as I prefer more modern things, but it's been fun to challenge myself to go a little bit "retro". I just finished quilting the 3rd one (it's not bound yet), and I'm very glad to be done with all these little ladies! It was fun, but it's time to move on!

    Each Sue has something different in her dress and hat. Here's one closeup:

    They all turned out so pretty!

    It always amazes me how changing colors and quilting of "the same" pattern makes the finished quilts look so different.

    Great job. You've actually given Sue quite a modern twist with your sashing and quilting. They all look fabulous! I love the fill in's on the hats. Makes them so special!!!
