Sunbonnet Sue


Couldn't help myself, could I? I have been wanting to do one of these for years; collecting patterns, bookmarking blogs and websites, etc., and finally last week, after seeing a particularly cute quilt, I just couldn't hold back any longer! This is on one corner of a large plain pink napkin that I had in my stash. I'm going to eventually put three more Sue-type appliques on it, but all different. I've found patterns for "Oriental Sue, Windblown Sue, and Sunhat Sam" as well as heaps of others, but I'll use those three this time around.

I love sunbonnet sue and you did the best job here! I like the addition of laces and trims. Just makes her so interesting. Years from now people can also appreciate the trims as well as the fabric.
