To tide myself over, I am getting back into the Sunbonnet Sure squares that I promised my daughter I'd make for her quilt. I made that promise in January. Four years ago.
Here are blocks 2-5:
Patriotic Sue, just in time for Memorial Day. God Bless Our Troops!!!!
Veronica wanted the mama hen to be a "mad mama". Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm. I'll not get into where she gets this notion of "mad mamas".
This one still needs work. The animals need faces, and I need to embroider some hay into the hay box (the green rectangle next to the all grey cat on the left).
This one is my favorite. I love the fabric combo, how the Sue is "sweeping" up fabric, and I love the little birdcage. I used the raw edge applique technique on this, and I think I left a little too much raw edge. It'll fray quite a bit after washing, so I need to work on my skillz.
You guys have any raw edge applique experience? Any advice?? I'm a newbie.
