I made my 8 year old granddaughter a Sunbonnet Sue quilt .She picked out the colors.

Now my 7 year old one wants one .But she wants Sue to look a little different.

Are there more  Sunbonnet patterns out there. Like on a motorcycle ,car, boat .

Anita, There are tons of Sunbonnet Sue's - one of the quilts that was in the KS show has a lot - take a look at it... Plus, if you go to embroidery library - click on the link for Sunbonnet Sue - I know that they are embroideries - but will give you some real good pictures for applique...

I am going to make a sunbonnet sue quilt this year for my Grand daughter...

I would love to see pics of the one you made.

Your welcome Anita.  You could always take the basic SBS and make your own, the possibilities would be endless!

I agree with that -

there are so many books out on her - I have a couple up on my shelf - I wish I dared get on the step ladder right now - I have to get up there to look for a book for someone else too -

I am heading out to PC for the guild meeting... supposed to be an excellent speaker today - but when I get back I'll climb up that step ladder and find the books I have on her.  thinking of that - Eleanor Burns has a fusible for her also... 

I never used to like her - but see how I have changed - planning on mking one myself - did you see the simple one from the quilt show pics - if not I'll post again here - with the close up I took of the embroidery.

This quilt was very pretty up close - I like the choice of fabrics for the sashing and the spill over into the blocks... a lot more work then simple sashing...

Very cute Althea.

I made a SBS angel for a quilt that was given to Elenor Burns.  A lady in CA took all the blocks and put them together and gave it to her. There were some cute ones but I never got a good picture of the finished quilt.

OK you guys  those quilts are just great; 

But now tell me how to get the picture on here  as fast as you guys are doing,

Thanks for all the help in getting a new sunbonnet sue.

 I made my quilt with Sue and Sam for my 11 year old granddaughter. Sam is fishing ,flying a Kite. Sue is picking up flowers and just walking

Not only am I new to quilting but also to computers.  I have a picture of a Sunbonnet quilt but it only comes up as a file . Wait----Wait  I think I got it

 Must be the picture, because I just send a different one to quilting and color and it worked.

Anita
