Sunbonnet Sue

Here she is in all her glory. I think this is my oldest UFO, the blocks having been made as a part of an internet swap.

I set them with an alternating block, they are all feathered hearts like the one shown.






The Sue's were all made with the same pattern. They could be any color but each had to have at least one embellishment on it.

There are beads, bows, buttons and fabric extras among the different blocks.





I don't know quite what to say at this point, I feel a bit speechless and that is SO unlike me. I can't find anything to say that doesn't sound trivial somehow. I feel like after hours and hours of work, sore fingers and multiple spools of quilting thread that there should be something profound to say.



But there just isn't. At least not yet, so I'll say this. She's done. She makes me smile.
