    I am making a SBS for our 3 year old G-Grandaughter Sierra. (Sissy to us) She loves this & always asks "Can I take it home now?" :mrgreen:

    What a crisp, bright, and active quilt for a 3 year old. She should really like all the different poses that Sue can be seen in. I really like your colors. Very nice job.

    I can understand why your GD is anxious to get this quilt. It's one of the cutest Sun Bonnet Sues I've ever seen. Just perfect for a little girl.

    That has got to be the darn cutest SBS I've ever seen--is the extra stitching by hand? Most is appliquéd? Is some embroidered? It's a 3 year old girl's dream quilt. :D

    Gorgeous quilt. I love the 30s fabrics and the borders around each of the blocks. Really sets them off.

    OH MY!
    I have been a busy beaver all day, trying to get everything put back in place after 54 guests here for the 4th. I come back to find all these wonderful comments. You really make a person feel appreciated---thank you!

    Sissy went into a "big girl " bed for her 3rd birthday. She is the best "mommy"--4 of her doll babies live here at our home (for us to play with, of course! :mrgreen: )

    The book is "The Ultimate Sunbonnet Sue Collection" by Leisure Arts. I believe I bought this one on Amazon.com I did tweak some of the patterns. For example, the one with an umbrella had no bonnet, the umbrella was jammed down on her shoulders. I re-drafted it to include a bonnet.

    All of the blocks are needleturn applique. The accents are embroidered.
    I used all 1930 Repos.

    Now, I must quilt my fingers off to get it done for her. (We are blessed to have 7 G-Grans. Sissy is our youngest one.)

    BTW, please don't say that your Sunbonnets are not good. There is no such thing as a bad Sunbonnet (except those that kill them off) You just used a different technique than I did. In case you don't guess, I still love Sunbonnet Sue at my age!!!

    Thank you again for your kind words!

    Riley
