This is an amazing quilt from Sharon Mason. You really have to look at each block. It’s called “Sunbonnet Sue in Texas” and it is Sharon’s own design. We just love the idea of Sue having adventures. We all can take this as inspiration. Here is Sue on the beach, checking out a horse, looking at an oilfield, etc, etc. Our favorite is her tubing down a Texas river. It’s adorable. Thank you so much, Sharon, for sharing it with our 24 Blocks quilting community.
Sherry Cagle posted her work in progress, saying simply, “This is my new project; we all all survivors”. So true. We applaud courage…everyday…and those who fight and survive. Thank you, Sherry. It’s going to be beautiful.
Sue Cole is a collector of vintage quilts and our readers have enjoyed seeing her posts this weekend showing several of them. This is one. All done by hand. It shows so much of the tradition that we all inherited. Thanks, Sue.
Phyllis Baas posted this photo of one of the 3 quilts that she and her friend Kathy made for Hurricane Sandy relief efforts. It’s a lovely piece of work and will be greatly appreciated. Those of us who have worked in disaster response know how something like a homemade quilt is not only treasured, it is generally really needed. Great work!
Sewpro Seamstress posted this photo of her Mom who is 86 and just finished this Cathedral Window. It was her winter project and the top is all done by hand. Notice, too, the edging. Both the quilt and the quilter are beautiful! Bravo!
So many of us quilt in groups and have quilting friends. Ernest N Gloria McGee posted this photo simply with the caption “Gloria with another one of her quilts and her quilting buddies! ” It is a fantastic quilt that looks like it came right out of Jane Austen….and we can tell the quilters are having fun.
