Sunbonnet Sue

One of my most precious possessions. Made in the ’30s for our dear Gran, Jean H. Blight Dyson, who passed away early this morning.  Our hearts are heavy, but grateful to see her suffering end.  Love you, Gran!

    • Thanks, Meaghan. I had already promised Laurel I’d bring it to the next sew-in to share, not knowing I would need to pull it out so soon.

    Oh, Sandie! I saw the photo before I read the content, and I immediately recognized it as your Gran’s quilt (with those lovely holes!)—I’m so sorry to read that she’s passed, but understand that relief to know she no longer suffers in this world. I’ll bring my sunbonnet sue squares next time, and maybe you can share a story about your Gran. Love, Laurel

    • I thought of you this week, knowing you would understand those holes are important, too. Thank you, Laurel.
