ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ OKAY...DON'T SNOOZE OR SNORE TOO LOUD

I A HAVING TROUBLE PREPOSTING, BLOGGER WON'T LET ME DO THIS, THIS POST WAS MENT FOR TOMORROW....SORRY FOR TWO IN ONE DAY...THIS IS HAPPENING TOO MUCH LATELY.

I had forgotten all about this Sun Bonnet Sue quilt until my niece mentioned it below in the last post.

I asked her to send it to me. This too is done by hand. I had forgotten I had made this one. If my memory serves me right, I made three of these at one time but....took forever to get them quilted up.....even with the little amount of quilting it required. What can I say, slacker!!



I don't know if you can see but I took bigger quilting stitches in pink, I wanted them to show up.



I asked her if she had washed it much. She said, are you kidding, after seven years of use and spit ups....

So as you can see the hand blanket stitches hold up with the sands of time.

I must say, I was thrilled to see this quilt after so many years and see that it is holding up so well.
