The Adventures of Young Children as Told Via Quilts
As I have written before, I didn't think I collected the Sunbonnet Sue or Overall Sam/Bill figures. But when I was asked in 2019 to put together an exhibit to help with fundraising for the restoration and maintenance of the oldest community buildings here on Lopez Island, I decided to see exactly what I did have in the way of these two patterns.
I was quite surprised to say the least when I discovered I had far more quilts made of these two patterns than I ever dreamed I had. I do keep a list of all my quilts but I hadn't yet explored and labeled all quilts of this particular pattern variation within my inventory.
Research is still on-going on most of these quilts three years later. I will continue to identify the source of each pattern on this new blog as I discover the source in my files.
Meanwhile, here we are preparing to hang the quilts in 2019:
