I found this wonderful article on

The block was done by Paula Bundick's grandmother, Alta P. Meador Probasco of Floydada, TX. She lived to be 93 and 3/4 years old.

It is a perfect pattern for someone making their first Sunbonnet Sue. All the curves are gentle and easy to turn under.

Notice the details that were put on this antique block. Grandmother put buttons (black embroidery thread) on the shoes and a band around the hat that ends in a bow.

Paula writes: "This quilt is extremely simple. All the blocks are muslin (of course) but done on the diagonal and there is a 1 1/2" diamond where the blocks join. Along the edge the same gold was used to fill in the diamond
shapes and use as the bias trim.

I feel very fortunate to have several quilts that my Grandmother made.
I treasure each one. But this Sue is very special."
