This 1930s Sunbonnet Sue was damaged. Very pretty colours and nice quilting around Sue in trefoils, I liked the French knots on the bonnets too. I quickly mended the binding and had intended to replace the two dresses that were worn to the bat, unpicking the hands and sewing them on again.
On closer inspection it was a lot more fragile than I had thought. I doubt it would have survived even a gentle wash.
so I let nature give it a good rinse and it will most likely go into my garage sale next year.
For a giggle about Sue do look at Barbara Brackmans posts.
next up was a simple 9 patch with red thread quilting. This is the second example I have come across this summer. I wonder if there was a 'vogue' for that work. This is a work in progress...
