Vintage Sunbonnet Sue

These hand applique blocks from an estate sale are sashed with 30's replica fabrics and custom quilted with small peacock feathers.

 The thread is cream and the batting Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 which gives very nice definition. 
Quilting shows nicely on the Kona muslin backing.

Just beautiful! My mother made one of these quilts - she did some gorgeous applique. I have always loved Sunbonnet Sue!
