Old hand-appliqued sunbonnet sue (or called Dutch doll) squares. Cut them down and fused to interfacing.
What was your inspiration?
Antique sunbonnet sue girls hand appliqued.
What are you most proud of?
The new Amy Butler background fabric gives it a retro chic look. My friend who owns the girls picked out the fabric and I think the pairing turned out great. These colors pair the orange and pink girls with the Gypsy Caravan fat quarters. I am working on another one using a different colorway of the same line. This one may be even prettier!
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Don't hold yourself to 'rules'. For example, using 30s repro fabrics for the background would have been logical. But pairing the old with the new turned out amazing results!!!!
