Sunbonnet Sue

I have just finished this lovely sunbonnet Sue for my customer. I used lovely Anne bright deigns in the borders and sashings.In the blocks I took off the belts and freemotion quilted ,grass,flowers,bushes sun rain,clouds,butterflies and even cows to name but a few things. I used mostly clear monofilament thread in the top as there would have been too many thread changes. It was fun to do and customer is delighted .This is for her granddaughter.

2 Kaffe Facett fabric quilts

Glenys has made 2 lovely quilts from her stash of Kaffe Facett (spelling? ) fabrics.
this one is her favourite with all the bright colours and the red border to set it off. I have quilted it using a beautiful bright pink thread with large flowers. The backing fabric for both quilts is white damask fbric. It worked well.

How is this for a quilt made from the left overs? I know I would love it. I quilted this with a bright green thread and a large leafy design as Glenys requested. It looks great.

congratulations Glenys another 2 lovely quilts. It is amazing how diverse your quilting is from these Kaffe Facett fabric quilts to the Quilt Aid soft pretty applique quilt. Just lovely.
