I'M BACK - this is delightful Sue. Well thought out and the colours are so perfect for Sue and Sam. Love Chris
I like - can I do this?
Yes. It will fit in your square hoop.
Ahhhh Sue you know I love sunbonnets having seen 2 quilts of them I did. They just remind me so much of my childhood. My Grandmother loved them.
Sunbonnets remind me of my grandmother, too. She quilted a lot and I remember her doing these among others. Fond memories , for sure.
Beautiful. Reminds me of spring. We could use some about now. We are in the middle of some heavy snowfall right now.
Beautiful! I like the colors. Watching sunbonnets is always a real pleasure.
Delightful. What size hoop do I need.
This was 230mm square, but I will also offer 200mm square and possibly a couple of smaller sizes.
Very cute...would love to see the back as well....you know how I love to see the back side too! What is the finished size?
This is about 45 cm square. I'll take a picture of the back tomorrow (if it gets light - we have storm Eleanor here at the moment!)
Thanks...stay safe and warm!
Very pretty. Love the colors.
Precious. Can more be added? I like how everything matches perfectly in the corners
It would be a struggle to add more blocks in the hoop. The backing would be unwieldy. The blocks could be joined on the sewing machine though.
It looks very neat Sue. The fabric strips are perfect for the designs/period. I made two things today too, but not as pretty as yours. A start for 2018!
I started with the fabric for the strips (the backing is the same.) It was part of a bagful brought to me by a friend from Maine.
Beautiful work, choice of fabric and colour is divine.
I love your sunbonnets and Sue and Sam. They look so charming. Such a nice start of the year! I had a day off and start embroidering tomorrow - 8 towels with the same family logo for one and 2 towels with a different family logo for another. Argh. And after that I'll happily come up with some new and fun project - I'll think about it when I watch my machine stitches..
Towels aren't my idea of fun! Hope they behave well so you can move on to something nice.
Mops think of something quick and fun for me to try. I need between 58-88 gifts!
This is really sweet, reminds me of a cushion my mother made many years ago
I'm glad you were able to figure it out! This is a perfect little quilt, and I really like the combo of ME and quilting. I'm still in the "how do I do it" stage.
Love the Sunbonnets! Beautiful creation!
So Beautiful Sue!!!Great work!!!
oh i love it!!!
Love the way you have used applique and embroidery together. Is it for anyone?
It is hanging on my wall. I thought of Jake when I patched Sam's trousers!
Beautiful work! I love your Sue's & Sam!
