Precious Moments and Precious Quilts...Pink Saturday #4


Life is Filled with Precious Moments. We have all experienced them, and this Precious Moments Figurine is a sweet momento of the birth of my
Grandson on 9-09-2009.
'Dedicated to God', #488232 dated 1999 is one of the many collectibles from
Precious Moments Figurines
.
I have a few more to show you, but before I do,
I would like to call your attention to the patchwork quilt
beneath this sweet baby figurine.
Made of 2" squares of country floral prints in pinks and blues, it is a small table topper I made in 1999.
An appropriate background for this Precious Moments Figurine.


These two Sweet Pink Precious Moments girls were discovered at an estate sale I've been working this week in San Antonio, Texas.



Overall Sam and SunBonnet Sue have been favorite subjects for baby quilts since the 1930's.
Sam and Sue are depicted performing everyday chores and events.
Sam and Sue in these quilt blocks are gardening.
They are two blocks in a crib quilt with other Sam's and Sue's doing a variety of gardening chores.
I chose these two to share with you on this Pink Saturday of Sam in his Pink Overalls and Sue in her Pink Bonnet.


I hope you will come back for the rest of Sam and Sue's gardening blocks, and the completed Crib Quilt which I will begin posting on Monday.

Thanks to our Pink Saturday Hostess, Beverly at How Sweet The Sound. Please visit this weeks Participants and my
'New Blog ShoutOut' Rosebud Quilting.
Michelle is a LongArm Quilter and has a beautiful selection of fabrics in her ETSY Shop.
My visits To All of You will be delayed a day or two as I'm working in San Antonio, Texas this weekend.
As Always....Thanks for Coming and Commenting.

Hi, Sue,
The Precious Moments figurines are some of my favorites. Congratulations on the birth of your grandson. The table topper is very pretty. I like your material selections for it. Sunbonnet Sue has always been my favorite pattern for a quilt. I look forward to seeing your quilt when it is finished. Happy Pink Saturday!! Vicki

I love Precious Moments I have collected them since I was a child. Lately I have noticed my daughter taking interest in my collection so that is exciting. I would love for you to stop by some time so if you get the chance swing by and say hi. Have a wonderful weekend.

Sue,
Congratulations on your latest little gift from heaven! I had my last baby {a boy} on 9/10 but now he's almost 6'2" and just turned 16. His name is Sam and since my name is Sue, you know I'm a little partial to the Sunbonnet Sue and Overall Sam quilts! I loved your earlier posts on reliving the 60's. Such wonderful memories and great photos you shared!

Hope you find some air-conditioning breaks in the sweltering heat of San Antonio!

Very sweet! Happy Pink Saturday (sorry to be late, the computer is playing up yet again - keeps overheating so I have to keep turning it off. I'm getting nowhere fast!)

Barbara said...

Sue, I do not have any figurines by Precious Moments, but I love to look at them, they are so sweet and innocent.
My a joy, a new grandson, anxious for some pictures.

I am only just a "little late" for Pink Saturday or am I early for this Saturday? :) Congratulations on the precious little one. We will be having one also soon. xo
