Sweet 1930s Sunbonnet Sue Child’s Crib Quilt
So charming with its pretty pastel colors, solid and print fabrics, hand pieced applique, patchwork and embroidery. There are nine white blocks each with a Sun bonnet Sue done in solids and tiny prints in different colors typical of the 1930’s. Each figure outline is embroidered with black floss. The blocks are finished with feather stitch in black. These blocks are framed with pale blue sashing. Bound with white on front and back edges. Backed with a pretty yellow calico with blue roses, green leaves and white dots. All cotton. Light batting. Machine quilted. Vintage 1930’s.
Measures 25 1/2” x 34”. In excellent condition, a wonderful soft old friend. No flaws I can find. Found at an estate sale and had been stored in a cedar chest.
Lovely to hang on a wall or drape on a chair or a bed. Sweet for a child’s nursery crib or bedroom.
