Materials/Techniques: Cotton, beads, ric-rack, lace, vintage Sun Bonnet Sue Block; needle turn and raw edge appliqué.

Artist's Statement: I have an interest in traditional quilts and fabrics and I love to include them in my AAQI quilts, I’m into recycling. Recently, I purchased six Sun Bonnet Sue blocks at a tag sale in eastern Missouri. The blocks had been cut from an old quilt and were being sold in a lot. The workmanship is very good on these Sues and I immediately thought how they would make a great mini quilt for an Alzheimer’s auction or sale. I embellished the block with beads, ric-rack and vintage black lace. The block is raw edge appliquéd to the print background. The piece is hand quilted both by the original maker and myself. The colors remind me of harvest time in Missouri. What a wonderful way for a Sun Bonnet Sue to have second life, as a mini quilt.
