March Quilt Block

Mom enjoyed hand-stitching and frequently had a project or two at hand. Many times, these were projects that she created as she went along. Her 'months of the year' quilt featuring sunbonnet 'Sue' and 'Sam' is made from objects and fabrics that she gathered in her effort of self-expression and creativity. Ribbon, buttons, ribbon flowers, thread appliques, and all work together to give one's eye plenty to look at.

This is her March block.

Since mom didn't choose to fill in empty spaces with quilt stitching,
I'm keeping this quilt is kept where it won't get much use and wear.

  1. Sue and Sam were the first applique I ever sewed. What a sweet square your mother made.
