    About the lack of sashing: the applique was done on long strips of white fabric instead of being done on square/rectangular blocks. Therefore, the only seams are long vertical ones to attach the rows. I think the black accent stitching nicely separates the Sue's. It is not quilting, but only goes through the top layer.

    I would think that it is up to the quilter as to whether they want to fiddle with the tiny hands or not. I've made them both ways. Sunbonnet is one of my favorites! ♥♥♥
