These were a gift from my friend Patty. I'm a lucky person to be her friend, and not just because she's generous with the vintage quilty stuff. You should visit her Etsy shop. Probably you should have visited it earlier today, before I did, because I purchased some of her lovely vintage fabric. If you live near her, you can pick up your purchases and say hello to her wonderful son and play with the impossibly cute puppy.
(I'm taking a moment here to reflect on the incredible cuteness of that puppy.)
Even though these stars are a little oversized and awkward, I love them because a) they belonged to the mother of my beloved aunt, b) the fabric is incredible and c) they were intended for something really lovely that, for reasons that will never be known, didn't quite come together.
Some Sunbonnet Sue pieces made by my grandmother. I think everyone who had a grandma who ever picked up a needle and thread inherited a few Sunbonnet Sue patches. I find them charming, but I am aware that some quilters find them reprehensible. Everyone's entitled to their opinion.
