Sunbonnet Sue Collection

      These are a few blocks from my Sunbonnet Sue collection.  Some of them were made by me; the others I won in a block exchange.  It's so fun to see what other women think up.  Many of these blocks were appliqued using fusible interfacing and machine edge stitching.  They’re still very cute!

     My favorite Sunbonnet Sue pattern is the old-fashioned one found in Eleanor Burns' book Sunbonnet Sue visits Quilt in a Day.  Eleanor Burns gives great directions for this method of machine applique, as well as her usual excellent instructions for putting together a quilt using several different placement ideas.

     Look in the near future for my Grandmother Stella's Sunbonnet Sue quilt that she made when she was very young.

The Country Journal Quilt feature fabulous feathered chickens placed against a background of journal notations, local flora, and berries, as the sun rises in the morning sky. The inspiration for this beautiful quilt was an old journal with farm notations and observations.

Applique in a Day
Three blocks I made from Eleanor Burn’s book 'Applique in a Day'. The first one I chose to make was the grape vine wreath. I love purple, but the main reason I chose this block was the dimension. The grapes...
