Sunbonnet Sue

Some days you don't feel like doing anything. And today is just one of those days. Due to a lack of motivation I picked-up some magazines from the shelf. You see, browsing true old magazines always works for me! It gives me new inspiration and new inspiration means I have to do something. So, while browsing I came across these sunbonnets

The magazine is a Japanese quilt magazine from 2002. It contains an article about 'Sunbonnet Sue'. To bad I can't read Japanese. They refer to the book A meeting of the Sunbonnet children by Betty J. Hagerman. I also found an illustrated history of Sunbonnet Sue here.

This quilt is so beautiful, i love the flowers in the border.

Have a wonderful day!

Leuk die Sunbonnets. Ze doen me vaag aan Holly Hobby denken, dat vond ik toen zooo prachtig! Fijn dat je weer inspiratie hebt en wij wachten hier weer rustig je werkstukken af!

om heel eerlijk te zijn: ik hou niet zo van sunbonnets - ik zou zo graag hun gezicht zien!!!!

These are the cutest "Sues" I have ever seen! To be honest I wasn't a big fan of "Sue"...until now!
Thanks for sharing and I can't wait to see your next project.

I just love that quilt and the bag is wonderful. I have some bonnet girl blocks that my grandmother had made by hand back in the 30's. Someday I will make them into a quilt.

Sounds like a day well spent! I love your red and white quilt and the flowers you spent time with (in the shade). It all looks like summer to me! We are having wonderful rain here at the moment.

I've never done a Sunbonnet Sue but it is a design I want to try. They can be so different and versatile.
