Vintage Quilt Top, Unfinished Quilt, 1940's Sunbonnet Babies, Applique, Hand Embroidered
This is a simply divine quilt top or unfinished quilt from the 1940's. It is the much loved "Sunbonnet Babies" pattern. The quilt top measures approx. 75" wide x 90" long, it is made from 100% cotton fabric, muslin blocks with 1940's flour sack prints. There is loads of hand embroidery, feather stitching and running stitch. The bonnets of the babies are decorated with embroidered flowers. The sashing is a bright pink. The blocks and sashing were machine sewn together, the babies are hand appliqued. When I first discovered that one of the blocks is unfinished I thought "oh no", but what a wonderful opportunity to put a personal touch of your own in this quilt. What fun it would be to use a piece of fabric from your daughter's or granddaughter's outgrown dress to make the 'baby's" dress out of. And extra fabulous to make your child a dress and use the scrap for the "baby's" dress, for a wonderful memory quilt.
The quilt top has some light age spots and as I was photographing it I noticed two extremely small holes in the muslin on one block. The quilt is clean and smells clean. My home is non smoking.
