I grew up seeing Sunbonnet Sue on family quilts, aprons, and tea towels. My favorite Sunbonnet Sue quilt was made by my great-grandmother who we called “Danny.” I loved her Norwegian accent and enjoyed watching her knit, embroider, and make quilts. She was so gifted with her sewing skills! One thing she didn’t have was HeatnBond EZ Print Lite sheets to speed up her work on applique projects. I love how easy it is to use! I just slip a sheet of it into my inkjet printer and ta-da, my applique designs are ready to be ironed on my fabric. No tracing!

Everybody needs a little love and Sunbonnet Sue is making sure this little pig is getting some special attention. The applique designs and quilt are made with Windham’s Daisy Chain fabric by Annabel Wrigley. I love the bright colors and think it is perfect for any version of Sunbonnet Sue!

    Thanks for the tips on using the appliqué sheets and the spray basting. I will have to try this one to see if I like it better than the one I use now.
