I am working on two Sunbonnet Sue quilts. I use a pattern that I copied from the quilt my mother made back in the early 1940s. I use various scraps so the dolls look vintage. My machine does a nice blanket stitch to attach each one to a 12 1/2 inch square. I use 9 dolls per quilt.
Here is a photo of the quilt and also a close up of a square.
