Sunbonnet Sue is one of the most recognized Quilt Patterns of all times.
So, you would be right in thinking that this Quilting Gal named Sue would be a Collector of all things Sunbonnet Sue. Yep, I have Sunbonnet Sue plates, patterns, books, fabric, needlepoint, embroidery, and on and on. I could probably post into next year and still not cover all of the Sue's in my collection. Over the years, I've rescued a number of Sue's. The one I'm showing today is my favorite 'Sue Rescues'.
She was a Filthy Rotten Quilt!
Found in the TRASH...can you believe anyone would THROW away a Sunbonnet Sue Quilt or any quilt for that matter. So it was Sue to the Rescue!!! The fabrics were 1930's Feedsacks with the Sue's appliqued on muslin that was very fragile. The sashing and alternate blocks were rotten beyond saving. So, I cut out the Sue's as close to their bonnets and dresses as possible and alternated them with the 1930's Reproduction Fabric Heart Blocks.
The ReDoRescue Sue hangs in my Quilt Bedroom.
The buttons that decorate each Sue's Bonnet and the Heart Blocks are from my 1930's Button Collection.
A perfect way to display them...don't you think?
