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.

  1. The quilt looks fantastic! I’m glad that you didn’t have to do any quilting inside the boxes – it would possibly detract from the design.
    So happy that you’ve got some great weather coming your way! I think we’ve possibly had your rainy off-and-on kind of weather, although we have a nice sunny stretch coming up too. The inside chores will still be there when it rains again!

    I love the quilt. It was one of my mom’s favorite quilts. It is supposed to be 104 today so we are working outside this morning and staying inside during the heat. We will mow tonight.

      Thank you – It’s warm today, and grandsons were here learning to drive the tractor/mower, so we were out in the sun quite a bit. Tomorrow, hopefully will be inside more. Lots of watering required.
