SCORE WITH SUNBONNET SUE or The Underappreciated Crafter Part II

My sister gave me a gift certificate to Antiqueland for Christmas.

Look at what I found waiting just for me....fifteen blocks of SUNBONNET SUES!!

Notice how even the blanket stitches are!

Look at the uniform and precise!  The applique stitches are wonderful!

So....obviously someone was cleaning out a relative's home and these were relegated to the  "dispose of " bin.  Poor underappreciated, misunderstood crafter!

I can't wait to finish this into a quilt.  I love these Sunbonnet Sues.  I am thinking 30s reproduction fabric!?

Another block of the month I signed up for is Meadow Circles:

And another BOM

And I still have to finish my Annie BOM (which started May 2010)

Annie June BOM

Anne May BOM
It's only January 3rd and I am already behind!!!!


  1. Nice score! I love your BOM quilts. I'm starting one with embroidery this month, and I'm looking forward to the change of pace from so much quilting.

  2. Well, I love all of your quilts and I love the BOM you ordered...I gave that to my Mom for Christmas! I'm anxious to see how it looks when finished!

  3. Very cute Angie!!! I love your Annies. Isn't that quilt going to be so cute?And you'll love the Basket block of the month too. Thanks for mentioning me on your blog.
