Don't you feel lucky! It's picture day in my house.
This quilt is for Abby...... she is my purple girl. I've always loved Sun Bonnet Sue and if I had been quilting when all of my girls were little they would have had a quilt a long time ago.
The Sues are appliqued using freezer paper. The bowties are from various swaps and ones that I have made.
Thanks to Judy Laquidara's encouragement (and saying it was "OK") I went ahead with my original plan to put the bowties around the outside and have the top/bottom and side purple borders two different widths (to accommodate the bowties).
So this one has moved up to the 'needs quilted and bound' list. Now to work on some more Sues and get the other two flimsies made and quilted. I am hoping to hand quilt, but who knows.
