    I tried to send a picture but couldn't get it to work. Thanks again Rhonda for all your help. :-)
    I will see if I can get into my files and check to see if I have a good Sam pattern. I have stuff piled in front of the file cabinet and need to move it first! :oops: :oops: LOL I have been trying to find a good Sam for a long time. I did find one but not sure if I still have it or not. I want one that you see him from the side. But I don't want a complicated one. And yes they are hard to find.

    Hello. This was a great tute. I have a group of friends that we get together every week to work on our projects and spend time together been with one for over 20 years and we all love SBS so today we had our annual Christmas get together and after lunch we made the magnets They came out sewwwwwwww cute. Thanks for putting this out for us to do. It was a fun project and did not take very long to make. It brought back memories of our SBS quilts and how they always make us happy. I will ask my friend if she has any patterns on Sam or Bill and see if it is something you might be interested in but it won't be until after Christmas as she leaves very soon for Kansas to spend the holidays. Thank you again for sharing this with us. The only question that was asked was why does she have a pocket but no arm so of course my friend made an arm for hers and she never has liked to put only one shoe on anything so she made two boots. Her's is really cute. If I knew how to work the pictures to send I would post them but alas I am too dumb on the computer. Merry Christmas and thank you again for making our day today.

    The reason she has a pocket but not an arm was simply because when I drafted the pattern I was making a king size quilt for my neighbor and I made my Sue as simple as possible. So no arm. It was just easier to do that way.
    She is just my simple country version. ANd one boot is because it is a side view. I did that quilt one hundred percent by hand. No machine stitching at all. I don't know how to do any quilting down stitches so it was all done in SITD and I took a paper copy of my Sues and pinned them around the borders and did an outline of Sues around the edge. That is the last large quilt I did or will ever do!!! LOL

    Anyone wants to change it be my guest! I just like to keep things simple.

    I'm really glad you all enjoyed making Sues! and yes I would be interested in any Sams or Bills. I want something not too complicated tho. Thanks!!

    Here is link to the one and only king size quilt I ever made. I did make a couple of twin size Sue quilts which I sold a long time ago. 12 years ago actually.

    I would take an Overall Sam pattern and use the copier to reduce the size about 80% or to the size matching your Sue. I have a book on Sunbonnet Sues, and will look it up. I love your tute, Rhonda. Have the pattern saved to my desktop here and will give it a try soon. Thanks for sharing this. Ronda

    Hi Rhonda! I so love SBS. I have 8-10 cut out that I got Goodwill in a mystery box. Keep wanting to make a wall hanging out of them. You have inspired me. I have the SBSam also but it is different from yours. I will see if I can up load a pic in the next few days.

    Thanks so much for sharing all your talents and knowledge with us!

    Sunbonnet Sue is one of my favorites too and your tutorial means she is going to be making appearances all over. She would look so cute on a gift package, hanging on my purse; oh I can thin of all kinds of places to put her. Many thanks for the great tutorial.
