This is a Sunbonnet Sue quilt that Amber and her mother made. They used orphan blocks Amber's grandmother made years ago. Amber set the blocks in sashing and then bordered them with sweet fabrics. Amber sent the flimsy to me to have them quilted by Wendy. I love the quilt. It turned out so darling. I really love the real vintage fabrics in the blocks and the black embroidery. I bound the quilt before mailing it back to Amber so she would have it all ready for her baby's room.
I took the quilt top to Wendy of Eagle Mountain Quilting. You can see the quilting in the photo above. I wanted to keep in line with the vintage blocks and choose a vintage type quilting design. This is a Baptist fan with flowers design. I think it finishes off Presley's quilt perfectly. It is a lovely theme for a baby. Love vintage Sunbonnet Sue.
This is the quilt I sent to Presley. You can't have too many baby quilts. I've made lots of baby quilts over the years. This is a pattern of mine that sets fabric into bows. I think it goes well with the vintage theme Amber has designed for Presley's room.
Congratulations Amber and Scott!! And of course congrats to my sister, Michelle, on her new granddaughter. Michelle will have 4 new grandchildren born this year. The next to deliver will be Melanie with twin boys. I'm working on baby quilts for the boys but won't complete them until I know their names. I want to put their names into the quilt design. Hmmm, I wonder if I will have a new grandchild born this year??? After all I have a lot of daughters....will one of them surprise me?
