Sunbonnet Sue

 

I have loved this pattern for as long as I have known the name for this quilt. I bought Eleanor Burns, Quilt in a Day book for Sunbonnet Sue and I must tell you it took me more than a day to pick out the fabrics!
The whole way through this quilt everything felt right. The fabrics coordinated well, the applique went well, Sue and Sam are standing straight in the blocks for the most part and the sashing fit the project. So because everything felt good about this quilt I decided to enter it in the local quilt show, “The Saxonburg Festival of the Arts”, where it took first place in the hand applique category.
I am very proud of this project and maybe someday I will have a granddaughter who will love to have it too.
