Sunbonnet Sue and Overall Sam

I realize that some of you will roll your eyes into the back of your head (permission granted). 1930s fabrics and patterns? So "old school." But there is still a strong (though small) group of quilters who love these things. This is my latest pattern with Keepsake Quilting catalog. What do you think?

Sunbonnet Sue Sampler
The background Log Cabin blocks are 8". Four together form the background for the 9" appliqué patterns. No border. Finishes to 48" x 48".

Here are a few blocks before the raw edge appliqué (and quilting):

Have a Heart Sue

And let's not forget Overall Sam!

Overall Sam
Keepsake Quilting offers both the pattern and the pattern PLUS fabrics as shown in the quilt (ie, a kit). I know which one of my daughters will claim this (once I get it back).

This is a fun scrap quilt. And we know that Log Cabins and Sunbonnet blocks will never go out of style, right?

  6. I enjoy 30's fabric and have a box full. This could be a future project.

    1. I also have a box full of authentic feedsacks! Maybe I should pull them out and use them before I die (not planning on that just yet).

  8. Love, love, love the pattern! I like new patterns but still gravitate back to the oldies. Right now I'm working on a bowtie quilt. On my bucket list are a dresden plate and Sunbonnet Sue.

    1. I've made several bowtie quilts. Again, the traditional patterns never lose their appeal for me.

  15. I really like this setting of Sam & Sue. I still have the Sunbonnet Sue baby quilt my grandmother made me. Very raggedy condition, but still loved.

    1. I think that's what puts it over the top. Sometimes I hit a home run (sometimes not),

  18. Love it! Just ordered my pattern! Of course, how perfect to put them on log cabin blocks!!

    1. There are a lot of moving parts in that pattern. It takes a LOT of piecing for those log cabins but sometimes it's good to do mindless sewing. Thanks for your purchase (and Keepsake thanks you, too)

  19. It's absolutely precious! I still like these traditional patterns, as well as the repro fabrics!

  20. Bloggers, I finally found one of my computers will let me make comments on your comments! Not sure why my main computer erases my individual comments to you, but I'm trying to be more interactive here. I have tried personal emails (which I do send often), but then no one sees my replies that way other than the individual). As always, I appreciate all the kind words about the things I show here!

  21. Beautiful, and I still like 30s and SBS and Sam. I don't like to limit myself to one kind of fabric, or one kind of quilting. That's called eclectic, right? LOL Or scatter-brained, or flighty, or many other things, but I like eclectic best.
