sun bonnet sue new works in progress

After making a quilt I like to work on some paintings, these are in progress, as you may notice they are about Sun Bonnet Sue.

Sue Bonnet Sue in a pile

This sunbonnet is finished, I am challenging my self to try to keep my images more simple and direct. The Sun Bonnet Sue structure seem to lent themselves to this wonderfully.

sun bonnet sue quilt

Here I'm working in the studio, on my latest quilt, I am interested in the Sue Bonnet Sue quilt pattern. I am fascinated be the faceless figure and I have been experimenting with her. I printed some fabric, actually cut up old house dresses, with a bird etching, and created a stack of Sue's in a pile. This piece is almost done.

My quilt collection

These are some cutters I've collected for future projects, I love them to pieces! and so did their previous owners.

Old as the hills

An old quilt I got on ebay, see where the quilt became filler for a new quilt note holes from the ties. This quilt is as old as the hills, well used with lots of odd repairs, gorgeous. To beautiful to use and totally disintegrated, But what the inspiration piece.
