I'm a wife and mother of three and step-mom of two. I have a master's degree in international relations. I live in Alabama, but have always wanted to move out of the south. I love the West and New England, so I travel there as often as I can.
For our current guild project, we are making a Christmas sampler quilt. Each guild member teachers a block, and we get a new block each month. Last month's block was a Christmas Sunbonnet Sue, which could be a plain Sunbonnet Sue in Christmas fabrics, a Sunbonnet Cat, or a Sunbonnet Angel. I decided to go with the Sunbonnet Angel. She's not finished yet, but here she is, all ready to be appliqued down. I don't know if you can see the blue line in the photo or not, but the block will be cut down to a 12 1/2 inch square once the applique is finished. I'm planning to hand applique it, using a blanket stitch in gold thread.
