Sunbonnet sue

Sunbonnet Sue has come to live at Ellen Grimshaw’s house. Ellen fondly remembers her mother giving her a Sunbonnet Sue quilt when she was a child, so she chose this design for her quilt block. Since she doesn’t have a barn, it was placed on her house, where in the summer it will be surrounded by flowers. Ellen’s love of flowers prompted her to add some embellishments to the quilt block, in the form of a floral “print” on Sue’s dress, and a finely detailed bouquet in Sue’s hand. This block is located at 75 Twin Lake Road, southeast of Marion, MI.
