Let's look at the pretty Sunbonnet Sue quilt. I won't have her long, as I hope to deliver it tomorrow.
Quilted; no binding. Terry did a wonderful job with the quilting. It was such a delicate old quilt top, and she was very mindful of that as she quilted. Is it an outrage to take an old, hand-pieced quilt top and put long-arm stippling on it? I figure at least it is quilted, and will be more likely to be cared for in this condition than to be left as a flimsy. Purists might be outraged, but in being practical, I am certain this is fine.

|One stretch of the top and side finished. |

|I love these girls' print dresses and matching bonnets.|
I have been absent from blog-land the last couple of days. That generally means it's book club time, and I am frantically working to finish my reading. The meeting was yesterday morning (I love our brunch meetings!), and I had to do some serious skimming to finish The Summer Before the War by Helen Simonson. It was quite the enjoyable read, and I wish I'd given myself more time to soak it all in more leisurely. Here's the Goodreads link to details.
Still need to finish that t-shirt quilt; what a champion procrastinator I am!! Goodness. That could have been done 10 days ago, easily. (shaking my head in shame)
I am linking up with Kelly at My Quilt Infatuation/Needle and Thread Thursday (even though it's Friday).
Happy Quilting, Friends!
