Sunbonnet Sue #1 finished

Sunbonnet Sue quilt #1 FINISHED – well no label, but whether that happens will depend on who eventually gets it.  The batting said it was good for a 10″ spread and these squares are 8″, so I decided not to mess around inside the square.  It is backed with a pink flannel that matches the light pink on the front and is soft and cuddly.  The finished size is 52 x 63″ – just perfect to wrap around a young lady and/or have as a bed covering.

The weather for the next 10 days is saying daytime highs at 80 and full sun, so we will be out there with hoses going.   Fortunately we have about 6″ mulch on the blueberries and grapes, so they will probably be able to go a week between waterings which will help.  This is absolutely beautiful weather and I don’t want to be inside sewing, cooking, or cleaning.  I’m soaking up as much Vitamin D as possible.   I’m thankful that I can sew/quilt from January through April when it’s too wet and cold to be outside any more than necessary.
