It is finally completed, yay! Pictured above is the Sunbonnet Sue full-size quilt top. We do not have a full-size bed, so had to place it on a king-size bed. The quilt has a total of 42 blocks, each with 4 lattices and 4 cornerstones. It is now hand-quilted to the batting and white backing by stitching in the ditches between every lattice horizontally and vertically. This is really a learning experience. Every Sue's dress and bonnet is made of a remnant of every outfit that I have made for granddaughter Macey since she was born in 2011. Can you believe it has come this far? To see close-ups of the corners of the quilt, follow the link below my signature.
Here are close-ups of the corners of the Sunbonnet Sue quilt top. Both of the corner Sues are appliqued "on point", which means that they are "walking" upright around the quilt's diameter. The Sues on the long sides of the quilt are also "walking" upright. As soon as I get the binding sewn on, 'will post photos of the totally completed Sunbonnet Sue quilt. What color binding do you think would best coordinate with this quilt? Maybe a pale muted yellow or plain white? The pattern is from an older book, Sunbonnet Sue Visits Quilt In A Day, designed by Eleanor Burns. Prim quilting blessings.
