It’s been fun looking at all the Sunbonnet Sues that have recently been posted at 24 Blocks. Here are just a few we’ve selected to feature….
We love this Sue appliqued onto a quilt that appears to have blocks with differing grid structures..and all in soft colors. Sue, in a darker red frock and a green bonnet, is a perfect contrast. Her little eyelet pinafore, the use of real ribbon on her bonnet and the addition of appliqued balloons is just delightful.
from Grt-Grt Granny Shirley Page-Deslatte: “I have several “Sues & Sams” from the 30’s – 40’s, but I love this one – I think it shows her all grown up as a young lady.”
Notice the Double Wedding Ring on the bed, too! It’s so nice to see two quilts that compliment each other in color and style/vintage.
It’s wonderful to see…even sideways! Notice Sue skiing (January) and dressed as a witch (October).
These blocks, showing Sue in a different activity each month, are just delightful! Notice that she looks to be talking over the fence to a friend in May.
Thanks to everyone who has shared their love of Sue, and of quilting, with our community.
