SUNBONNET SUE AND DRUNKARD'S PATH....JUST DOESN'T GET MUCH BETTER!

Yesterday afternoon while doing these.....


I hooked my embroidery machine up and had her squealing all afternoon with these!!
Photobucket
Marjorie does such a fantastic job digitizing the Accuquilt Go dies, here store is here. As you can see I did use the Sunbonnet Sue Accuquilt die and the drunkard's path die, which made this process so much easier and faster. I need borders for three of the quilts but that is a good start for tomorrow's day.

Remember tomorrow I will be over at Sew We Quilt along with a giveaway here on my blog.

I'm still amazed how much you get done in a day. Lovely Drunkard's path baby quilts and beautiful Sunbonnet Sue machine embroidery blocks. Do you think Sue wants a date to a dance?

I like your color selection for the quilts. Sunbonnet Sue is a favorite of mine. I have made several quilts with her. I use the patterm from the one my mother made back in the late 30's.
I need to pull out my GO and cut out some of the drunkards path blocks to try doing those curves

Barb, How beautiful!!! You are right does not get much better than that!!

Annie said...

The two path quilts are great! The fabrics are so fun! I have to say that I hate that Sun Bonnet Sue...she's just been around for so dang long and won't go away!....BUT! You have put some modern fabrics in her clothing and appliqued with contrasting thread colors and I actually LOVE your Sue(s)!!!

The drunkard's path quilts look so cute. And tho sunbonnet sue's are adorable. Looks like you are achieving a lot!

You are right, the large Drunkard's Path die makes a quick and wonderful baby quilt. I need to make two for a couple babies due to arrive in August.

Sue is always adorable but these are extra sweet.
