Sunbonnet Sue

I completed my project for the week this morning.  It is a Sunbonnet Sue mini quilt.  It can be used as a tabletopper, wallhanging, or ?????  All the squares are machine embroidery.  Designs are  from Anita Goodesigns.  The fabric is 30s reproductions from my stash. 

I'm making these little quilts as gifts for friends.  They are small and a great way to experiment with my embroidery designs.  Next up, I'm planning to try redwork blocks.  I have a Redwork Quilt pack from Martha Pullen that I would like to use.  That will be my next week project. 

I'm so glad I am able to use my stash for these projects.  It's like they cost me nothing!!! (I do realize that I spent lots of $$$$$ on the design packs and fabric but I'm not spending anything now.)

This is just the sweetest thing. I think I'd like it as a wall hanging. Very cute!

I remember Sunbonnet Sue well. Very cute designs. Your little quilt turned out great. The perfect gift for a friend. I am sure you can whip this size out in no time. Have a great weekend. Tammy

I love SunBonnet Sue mini. So adorable. I'm looking forward to the redwork. I think that's the most fun thing to do. Since you can't work with wool(ha-ha). Happy Mothers Day to you!
