SunBonnet Sue Blocks

The ladies in my Foothills Quilters group made some darling SunBonnet Sue blocks for me when I was President.  The  blocks have been aging since 2008 and today was the day I finally decided to make them into a quilt.

Here are the blocks set in place with sashing.  Borders are next...........

I based the setting on an antique quilt I fell in love with.  The antique quilt had 44 blocks and mine has 30 so I had to make some changes to make it work.  It still has the feel of the antique quilt even though mine is a bit different.  Tomorrow I hope to work on the borders.  It would make me happy to get the top finished (and maybe even quilted) before our next Foothills meeting so I can show the ladies how the blocks they gave me turned out.
