This is Violet's (and My) first quilt together!!! She has worked on the beautiful embroidery squares of "Sun Bonnet Sue" over the past year and finished ALL 12, all by herself!! I am SOO proud of her, and she has just done a super job with her stitching!
So now I've sewn border frames around each of her embroidery squares and that is the point we have come to now. I wanted so much to show it off. It's going to be so sweet and such a treasure for her! It has truly been an wonderful mother and daughter project and will probably be ongoing for another month or so unless I can get more done before we move! Please click on the photo to see up a little more closely and enjoy!
We're planning to sew strips between each of the framed blocks with some beautiful pale green calico with pastel polka dots throughout and use this as the backing as well. It matches with her bedding and bedroom decor and I think it will be lovely! Quilting has been a joy and we look forward to more projects together. I can see now why the pioneer women enjoyed this wonderful handicraft so much.
