Materials/Techniques: Cotton; appliqué.

Artist's Statement: This Sunbonnet Sue was bought with a group of 57 others at a yard sale for a couple of dollars for all of them. The quilt maker had neatly basted all edges with matching thread, some had added lace, then they were pinned bonnet, dress, arm, hand and shoes. They had been pinned a long time because some of the pins had rusted. Why did the quilt maker never finish the quilts for which these Sunbonnet Sues were intended?
