Julie Q the other day pictured some Sun blocks she found and is putting into a quilt. It is so much fun to find these old blocks. I did a number of years ago and made my granddaughters quilts.
But she wanted us to show OUR Sunbonnet Sue quilts. I have the one that my Mother made for me. I presume before I was born which was July 1930. So the little girl was all the rage at that time.
You must remember that back then the quilting instruction they had was their Mothers or the other ladies in the church. I don't think my Grandmother quilted.
Here is my quilt,rather worn. It is sort of machine stitched down but tied with yellow yarn.
There are some very neat old prints. Many are very faded.
Here's a closeup of one of them and below another.
Tomorrow I shall show you the one that my Mother made for my daughter at my suggestion. She did a lot of quilting in the 40' through the 70's. Never made me one because she said I could make my own.
I have pieces off one of hers.
Don't forget to sign up for my giveaway. Tues, is my first anniversary.
