I have blogged about my Little Girl Quilt Before.
I'm not sure that I really told everyone about how I made it.
I'm the most proud of this quilt because it's an original. After making my Indian Girl Quilt I thought of the Sunbonnet Sue Quilt but I wanted to change it. Not many girls wear bonnets. I had some scraps left from my Moda Bliss Fat Quarters so I decided to make it. I first Drew the Little Girl.
After Drawing her I drew the individual pieces.
I cut out the pattern pieces and traced onto some "Heat and Bond" lite. I pressed them onto the wrong side of fabric and then pressed them onto my squares of Onasburg fabric.
After these were all finished I sewed trim onto their dresses and shoes and hats. I finished the applique by sewing a small blanket stitch around each piece. I embroidered flowers and butterflies on each block.
This was a "Make Do" Quilt. I made it for my niece. My grandma made all of her grandkids a Sunbonnet Sue or a Fisherboy. She is in her mid 80's now but I felt like my niece needed a quilt like this. I can see her touching the trim and embroidery and looking at the little girls.
I used my favorite Bliss Print for the backing.
I hope you enjoyed my post and would love any comments and be sure to follow my blog! I will be having a tutorial soon.
