Sunbonnet Sue Appliqué Mini Quilt or Wall Hanging
First Quilt – Appliqué Sunbonnet Sue
One of the first quilts we ever made was an appliqué sunbonnet Sue little wall hanging. It was fun to make and very colorful, too.
I am sure if you look closely you will see plenty of errors – so please don’t! HAHA Even now, she brings a smile to my face. This little quilt is hanging on our backdoor – the door out to the garage – so I look at it at least once a day and usually more.
It also has the cutest hangers in the shape of sunbonnet Sue herself! How cute is that?! I cannot remember where we got the hangers, and it has been so long that I am sure they aren’t sold any longer. We actually sewed it to the wall hanging.
This does make me want to start/make another quilt or wall hanging like this (not that I need to add anything to our project list). The original pattern from the mid-80s was printed by the Little Quilt Collection and is called Friends. I also found this free pattern in a Google search, that gives credit to the original artist:
Does it peak your interest and make you want to go in search of some 30s fabrics to make your own little wall hanging or even a bigger quilt? I told Sue that I would be willing to add this to appliqué list. I am almost finished with the second alphabet for the ABCs quilt number two, after all. ~smile~
