Sunbonnet Sue & Overall Bill 1964

The very first quilt I ever made was a baby quilt for my first child, Shannon Louise, in 1964. My mom chose to start me out with the Sunbonnet Sue & Overall Bill patterns. Mom taught me what to do, but I made the quilt all by myself. I can find no pictures of it taken at the time, but did find a couple later with Shannon in them.
