This happy Sunbonnet Sue quilt has been made from a wonderful array of fabrics created during the the 1920s and 30s. Depicted on this Sunbonnet Sue are a parade of happy little girls walking and dancing. An unusual rendition....The creator of this wonderful quilt appears to have been a very happy person. Originally this quilt would have been made for a double bed with a large overhang and pillow tuck. Today, it will fit a queen size bed with a 10” overhand and pillow tuck or a single or a double bed. The outer white border measures apx 7-1/2 inches with an unusual Gothic quilting design. The innermost 3-1/2 inch pink border is quilted with a chain design. Each little girl is wonderfully outline embroidered as well as outline quilted. The 1/4 inch binding is applied by machine and closed by hand. The stitches are nice and even. Unused condition, some black embroidery threads restored. Organically hand washed and ready for viewing in your home.
