Part two of today's post

Please go back one post because the quilt picture was left off that post. Then you can read this
continuing post.
I saw this quilt at a quilt show in Jacksonville a few years back. I thought it was striking. I did not take a very good picture of it, sorry for that!! I will try to tell you what I saw....
This is called The Sunbonnet Sue Quilt, because the image of the woman with no face is called Sun Bonnet Sue. Sue is all flat but the rest of the quilt is dimensional!! The quilt is flat and on top of that is the trellis that is another dimension, than the flowers are a nether dimension.
It was very striking in person.
Love ya, Fern


  1. Hi Fern,

    This is a beautiful Sunbonnet Sue - she has never been a quilt that I thought I would want to make, but I have embroidered many redwork Sunbonnet Sue towels.

    We hope you and yours are having a great day - we are busy working - cleaning house and doing laundry - catching up after 3 weeks of sitting around with the flu.

  7. Hi Fern,
    A very beautiful quilt and a great description. I was able to enlarge it a bit to see the details. You are doing such a great job downloading pictures!!!!
    Do you have many birds visiting your yard now that it is getting cooler up here. I bet you have a nice variety of songbirds. I'm an avid bird watcher. If you see anything unusual take a picture for me.

  8. OOOOHHH my D loves the quilt -she wishes she could make them.... or at least go buy them!

    Thanks for sharing
