    Sunbonnet sue quilt.. in this picture, I have 1/2 the blocks done.. (now I only have one row to add) and then add the border. This is for my mother and her favorite color is yellow. I think this will fit perfectly in her log cabin (A true old fashioned) house. (we cut, peeled and dried the logs for her house) I can't wait until her 77th birthday party to give it to her.
    Please excuse the nasty looking floor. We removed the old carpet to put new in..and this was the mess left behind. Now we have to try to get all this off the floor before we can finish our floor. It is so ewwwwwyyyy..

    My first love affair with quilts was with a Sunbonnet Sue. It is so cheery and bright. It is beautiful!!

    I like the traditional 'old fashioned' look to your quilt. I surely can see it in your mother's home!
