Sunbonnet Sue and Overall Sam

Yes, they still are going strong!

Sunbonnet Sue and Overall Sam Sampler Quilt
This popular quilt ran in the Keepsake Quilting catalog. Made with Windham Fabrics 1930s reproduction prints and solids, it was a best seller.

"Have a Heart" Sue
The appliqué block is composed of four 8" log cabin blocks put together so that the white logs create a space for the appliqué patches. What do you think of "Have a Heart Sue"?

And there's "Have a Heart Sam"
This is all raw edge appliqué (of course!). Sam has his ever-present hat. And then there's Overall Sam . . .

Overall Sam
One more Sue block:

Windy Sue
OK. Where can you get the Sunbonnet Sue and Overall Sam pattern? At my Craftsy store, of course!

Keepsake Quilting catalog no longer carries it. This is SO scrap buster happy. You don't need to have a stash of 1930s reproduction prints. Solids work so well for the appliqué patches.

Can we see the blocks? Ah, yes. Now it makes sense!

Four 8" blocks together, ready for the applique patches
The Sunbonnet Sue and Overall Sam pattern includes all the cutting and stitching for the log cabin blocks and FULL SIZE patterns for all 9 blocks!

I have this quilt hanging in my living room and get to enjoy it every day. Hope you enjoyed the show.
