sunbonnet sue cushion

By Hatun Comak Thursday, September 6, 2018

Sunbonnet Sue is always one of my favourites. I like seeing this pattern on every kind of quilting. This is one of my earliest works, it was gifted years ago to my sister and I coincided this cushion ,n her house. I though I should add this to my patchwork diary and share it with you.

Sunbonnet Sue wears a colorful and flowery dress because it is a spring day. She is with her boyfriend and she gives a flower to the boy. The boy wears blue clothes.  (Is it only me that makes up stories with Sunbonnet Sue?!) It is a beautiful sunny day with a lot of flowers and butterflies around. They are so happy in this spring day!

Here are some detailed pictures of the cushion I made. I appliqued Sunbonnet Sue and the boy to the fabric and added some details to the scene. I embroidered some flowers, a butterfly, a little snail, some birds, clouds and a smiley sun.

It is up to you and your imagination to create the scene with Sunbonnet Sue. Whatever you do, do not forget to enjoy it!
