So cute.The purples are great for this block. I was so in love with Sunbonnet Sue when I was 8 or 10 years old. It's a true classic design that evolved more than 100 years ago and is still popular.
sewbug57 answered:
I thought purple HAD to be the color for it too. My husband saw my block and said my Sunbonnet Sue needed a face coming out of her bonnet....grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr !! I took a deep breath and explained to him that THIS is how Sunbonnet Sues were always made from 100 years ago. Men just don't get it sometimes, LOL
Lavender Sencha asked:
Are these 12 inch blocks? Fabrics from your stash? What's next - roses with raindrops or whiskers on kittens?
sewbug57 answered:
Hi !! The background block is 12.5 then I add an inner border of 1" and a 2nd one of 2". The roses with raindrops sounds really romantic !! I have a list made of my favorite things and when I think of something I add it. When I get enough to make a quilt I'll stop and put it all together. This is a really fun project :)
