Sunbonnet Sue

So here is the rest of my Sunbonnet Sue!

This quilt is a special request for a Sunbonnet Sue and lots of purple.

I made my center medallion first. I used fusible web to do raw edge applique with a blanket stitch on my machine to  secure the edges. Next, I added a 2 patch border with pinwheels for the corner stones and some white borders to finish. I thought it needed a little something else, so I added a couple more border strips. I kind of liked the border strips just on two ends, so I left it just like that!

Now I have it all sandwiched and ready to quilt. FYI… I used spray adhesive for the basting and 100% cotton for batting.

Hmmmm, now how am I going to quilt this thing?

  1. Awww, how cute! I would suggest quilting around the applique to start, then fill in with swirlies or something small & curly in the white, maybe Terry Twists in the pinwheel/checkerboard border, moving on to small daisies or something similar in the bigger border and maybe piano keys along the outside 2 borders. You have a lot of room to play so go for it! :-D

  2. How cute! I would quilt around Sunbonnet Sue, then straight line “frames” around the borders, and then stippling in the white area.

  3. Turned out awesome! She’s really cute.

  4. She’s very sweet! Great piecing too :) How big is she, will she be a wall hanging? x
