    Sunbonnet Sue blocks

    I started a Sunbonnet Sue months of the year quilt. The designs are embroidered on my Brother embroidery machine. I am adding sashings to correspond with the month. Here are three that I made today. January, February, and March.

    They are just gorgeous. What a great idea to use the months of the year as your theme.

    I might just have to "steal" that idea and use it as an idea for my granddaughter. Perhaps a wall hanging with the months of the year. Hmmmmm now the old grey cells are ticking over.

    Those are wonderful. I love the vivid colors you are using.

    Like them, they are colourful and seem to be just right. The stiches are so rich and lovely.

    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Great job! My great grandmother made me a Sunbonnet Sue quilt and it disappeared some years ago. Of course, it wasn't embroidered like yours. This is lovely!

    Your blocks are really sweet. I like your idea of the seasonal fabrics used to sash the blocks. This promises to be a great quilt with lots of opportunity to talk about the seasonal fabrics. Cute idea.
