What are you most proud of? The hand quilting sets this project apart from machine quilting. The hand appliqued "Sunbonnet Sue" and her little doggie adds a fun flair to this 18 x 18" miniature quilt. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Have fun with it. After the nine-patch 'base' is put together, any applique that would suit your family, your decor, etc. would be fine. I chose the SunBonnet Sue because it is a reflection of times past.
