Well, it is my day on the blog hop. I am so glad that Carol @ Justletmequilt.blogspot.com join in. I had already planned what I was going to do, and someone else had the same idea. Oh well. I will still share the project.
As I am sitting here writing this post, I am typing fast, as we had a storm come in and I lost power. That is okay, because we need the rain. My daughter who doesn't live far from me texted me and said that it looks like a river is running down her street. So as it is cloudy and rainy , there is no sunshine, not even one of our gorgeous Utah sunsets, so I will share a couple of things with you, that will give us sunshine.
First is this Sunbonnet Sue block. I am doing this by hand and I love it. I am doing hand applique. I love hand applique, because I can take it with me, wherever I go. I am doing a wall hanging and then will do a quilt. These will be samples for a class I will be teaching at the Quilters Heritage Festival in Richfield Utah in October.
Next up is this quilt I put together. I am going to do different designs in the small rectangles and use it for a class called How do I quilt this that I am applying to teach at retreats and at quilt guilds. I was just ready to start quilting in one of the long rectangles with a darker yellow 💛 thread, when the power flickered. Then when it came back on I thought okay, now I will quilt. Nope. We lost it again.
Here are a few shots of some of the quilting I have done with this quilt.
I hope you will check out all the other bloggers for this hop. There are some great ideas.

All great works. I love Sunbonnet Sue designs.ReplyDelete
I have always loved Sue in all of her activities. So glad you are enjoying your handworkReplyDelete
Such a sunny lil Sue! Hope the power stays on long enough for you to finish quilting your quilt. Nothing is worse than loosing power when you are on a mission. LOL!!ReplyDelete
Beautiful projects! I have always loved Sunbonnet Sue! Thanks so much for sharing!ReplyDelete
Sunbonnet Sue is perfect for this blog hop. To be honest, I'm surprised more bloggers didn't choose her! She is nice and sunny! I admire those that do hand applique! Good for you! :-)ReplyDelete
Sweet Sunbonnet Sue and your quilting Sampler quilt will be an interesting finish. Thank you for sharing. 😉ReplyDelete
Sunbonnet Sue is always welcoming. I think having a small hand work project is perfect. A pick-up project to work on is just-the-thing. Great quilt, too.ReplyDelete

Love Sunbonnet Sue in her pretty summery yellow bonnet. Power outages are most annoying.ReplyDelete
