When I was climbing around in my quilting studio closet looking for some items I need for a class I am taking this week I stumbled across this Sun Bonnet Sue project. I started it for my oldest granddaughter when she was a baby; she is now 26 years old. Guess it might be time to consider finishing it.
I had to take some time trying to match the blanket stitch, as I now have a completely different sewing machine than what I started with on it.
Several blocks were just started and would require some additional work.
This block was well on its way to being finished.
I am going to have to do some plowing through my buttons to complete some of the unfinished blocks or buy some.
I think I have my work ahead to compete with these two.
Well here is the lay out. I need another little guy in the center, and work on a search for some cute buttons and ideas to finish this off. I am think, as I started this when I just started quilting that the buttons should have waited until after I quilted it. I may have to take them off and sew them back on. I was smart enough to have it along with several books all in a bag with plenty of 1930's fabrics to finish it. Guess it will have to get finished for a great granddaughter some day. At least for now that isn't happening, but I have more time to get it done for someday.
I think this is just adorable--love all the buttons..;)))hugs, JulieroseReplyDelete

Shoot, you just reminded me I have a stack on Sue and Sam blocks to finish. Not quite as old as yours but close to it. Thank you for linking up with Put your your foot down.ReplyDelete
Adorable blocks! Such a nice start.ReplyDelete
I love that you started this quilt many years ago for your daughter, but will now be finishing it for a future grandie! At least you had the extra fabric tucked away safely with the blocks.ReplyDelete
Wow, you get the oldest WIP award! And good for your for moving forward with it, even after all these years. : )ReplyDelete
