Sunbonnet Sue

And for the seventh of Grandma's quilts in seven days.... how about this wonderful, hand pieced and hand quilted Sunbonnet Sue, probably made in the 30's or 40's.  I love examining this quilt!  This one was made by one of my Grandma's aunts in West Virginia, many years ago.  It is in pristine condition.








Grandma and I both marvel at the expert detail on this quilt.  Oh how I wish the maker had labeled her quilt!!

And there you have it - seven quilts beloved by my Grandma Mary Lou.

When I am back home in Massachusetts this summer, I will photograph more of Mary Lou's quilts.

Cheers!
