Sunbonnet Sue Christmas

I have been working on this hand embroidered quilt for so long I can't remember when I started. It all began with these sweet Sunbonnet Sue Christmas Iron on patterns many, many moons ago. I took my time embroidering these as I tend to get sloppy if I work on the same project for very long. I need to change it up to keep it fun.

 Once I had finished the embroidered blocks it was time to delve into the fabric stashes and I just happened to have everything I needed. Stash Buster!
 This block above is my favorite. I just love it so much.
That is why I placed it in the middle of the quilt.
 Did you notice that dirt ring around the wreath? I had that one in my hoop for so long it got scuzzy.
 This incredible 12 Days of Christmas fabric has been hanging around waiting for just the right project.

 Swoon. I love this one below. The bonnet, the nightgown, the candle. Love it!


 Here is the back. A soft flannel. So cozy.

I think I will add a bit more quilting on the tan sashing and I need to find the perfect binding fabric. Then I can wash it up and hang it on a wall.
Hope you have a Happy December 1st.
