My mom made a SunBonnet Sue quilt in the 1930's. She told me she made it when she was expecting her first baby. She lost that baby and 2 more. Full term babies that died at birth. All girls. She said she packed the quilt away and when I came along (C Section baby) in 1952 she was finally able to wrap her baby girl in it. I have loved that quilt forever. I copied the Sue and made several versions of the quilt using my mom's pattern. I need to take a picture of mom's quilt and post it. It is made out of feed sack fabrics and all hand made.
These were made for a couple of my girl friends. I sold a few made like these and I gave several away at baby showers. I need to make one for me!
