Here is the whole quilt. The block maker sure used some cute fabrics! I love it!!
Now for the old. The above and below pictures are pictures of an e-bay rescue...I call it that because this quilt is falling apart. The appliques are still strong, but the fabric is very frazzled on all the edges. I think it is from the 1930's? Please, anyone have a guesstimation of the age of this quilt? The sashing looks to be all muslin, but on close inspection, it is actually pink and green print fabrics. Faded to nothing. The back is turned to the front and hand-stitched down to form the binding, and the quilt is hand-quilted. The cotton is bunched up inside the quilt terribly...Just a mess of lumps and bumps!! One lady friend wants this quilt to cut up and frame the pieces of applique... I just cringe at cutting up someone's pride and joy and hard work.
I also have another Sunbonnet cut out and ready to hand applique...I can't find it! At the bottom of a basket I am sure...
NOW, it is your turn! Do you have a Sunbonnet Sue that you will share? It would be such fun to see some other ones!!!
Have a great day!!
