    Southern Sun Bonnet Sue for DIL2

    Not usually my style and I didn't think I would enjoy doing it, but finding I quite like it and enjoying the process... I wanted to do a classical southern belle but DIL2 said that wasn't what she wanted. So ya do what the recipient wants.

    It will be king size so I have LOTS more blocks to make.

    Boy she has a thin waist!! Reminds me the Dr told me today, weight needs to come off once you get over this cough/sinus infection and etc. Its coming out really neat, are you going to put sashing inbetween the squares?

    Thanks for all the nice comments... I did get to go thru my stash and pick out lots of color combinations. Some of left-overs for many years so glad to find a use for them now.

    Someone asked how I was finishing the applique so adding a closer photo. Using machine to zig zag around the pieces.
