I saw this Quilt top on eBay and I could not resist buying it. I must say this is not something I ever thought I would buy. I hate sun bonnet Sue…..but sun bonnet duck for some reason is different. It is a small top (only 45 X 53) but I think If I take it apart and add some appropriate sashing it will easily make a great quilt.
The ducks are stitched onto old feed sack muslin and some of the writing is still visible on the blocks. They are a bit dirty but that will wash out fine.
The applique is done with black embroidery floss and a blanket stitch. It is raw edge applique so there are a few stray threads here and there but they are very well done. Each one is different . click pictures to enlarge.
