The back for the little snowball star is all pieced, appliqued and the quilt sandwich made and pinned ready for quilting.
I think it turned out nicely and I am really pleased with the front of the quilt. Getting the rows all sewn together and the top pressed makes such a difference. Now to decide on how to quilt it. I am thinking I will probably won't try anything too complex. It's such a simple, sweet little quilt that I think I will keep the quilting simple also.
The other day when I did a post on some of my older books, I also took a picture of this one by Dolores A. Hinson. I have two other ones that she wrote, too, which are some of the first books I ever purchased. All of these books have been well used over the many years since I caught the quilting bug. This one has many sunbonnet babies.
Here is the pattern for one and the pattern pieces.
Back in the 80's, I used this pattern on a sweatshirt for myself. My husband and I did lots of fishing so I always kind of thought of this one as Fisher Girl. I have a soft spot for sunbonnet girls. Later I will show you a quilt that I have put away that will one day be there for another great grandchild.
Speaking of great grandchildren, last night I went over for dinner with Sherry and Barclay. After we had eaten, we had a Skype session with Norah, Chad and Henry.
Henry was such fun!! It is almost as good as being there. What a wonderful after dinner show!! He is soooooo cute!
