Sunbonnet Sue Nine-Patch

Project Description

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.

What you will need

  • 100% cotton calico prints for miniature nine-patch pattern
  • borders
  • applique and backing. 100% cotton 'Warm and Natural' batting. Quilting thread.

After viewing all your projects on Craftsy, I must say you are a multi-talented Lady. I love your work.
dottyeb answered:
Thank you so much. I like to keep busy, and was very fortunate to have a mother and grandmother who could 'do anything'. So I had the best teachers. I am partial to porcelain painting, quilting and heirloom sewing. But love all home arts and crafts.
