Sunbonnet Sue with Umbrella

This quilt was originally made in 1960 for my sister Gaynell by Irma Adams, the mother of our aunt, Eileen Gillespie. It had seen some hard use and I repaired it for Gaynell for Christmas of 1996. The square in the first picture is one I had to completely replace. (Fading the material would have been a good idea.) Someone had most likely been sitting on the top of this quilt--a big no-no. Quilts are for lying under, not on top of. This is an unusual variation of the Suebonnet Sue design and there is a picture of the entire quilt below.
