    Bonnet Girls - Fourteenth in Series - Farewell - Sort of Original

    Hi, Just finished this block. I saw a figurine once, and this block was drawn from the figurine idea, and a steamboat was added. Hope you like it.

    Ditto me too
    Are you going to hand quilt it when you are done?

    No, this quilt will not be hand-quilted. I have a lady that does a superb job using her quilting machine. She has quilted two other quilts for me, and they have been totally perfect. I usually have my tops machine quilted when I have done all of the work by machine. If I have hand pieced or appliqued, then, It would be hand quilted.

    Several people have asked me about the size. These blocks measure 12.50". The bonnet girls measure approx. around 9.50." I haven't used any of the patterns from the books yet. The individual patterns are huge...I believe most of them measure for a block approx. 22" x 30." That's much larger than I would like..So, have had to make adjustments. When I use a pattern from the book, will have to resize again, for them to measure about the same size as the individual patterns, because I want them all to be about the same size. Hope this helps...I didn't realize how huge the individual patterns are..

    This is just perfect! It seems as if each block you do adds a new chapter to a book. Love it!
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    Oh I especially love this one because I lived in Natchez, Ms. when I was first married and this looks like a steamboat on the Mississippi River. Super block. Thanks for sharing.
