Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
If you loved playing with paper dolls when you were a child, [this] is the book for you. This book offers you the opportunity to use your embroidery skills, as well as your applique. I would buy this book. -Connections newsletter
Library Journal
A favorite subject for appliqu , the familiar Sunbonnet Sue is always captured in side view with a huge bonnet obscuring her face. Sue has sometimes been called the quilt motif we love to hate for her "goody-goody" image. Nevertheless, for many quilters, Sunbonnet Sue brings back memories of simpler, more elegant scenes and times. Unlike any other book on this subject, this volume combines the author's passion for quilting, appliqu , embroidery, and drawing to create 18 bonnet-girl quilts. Scott also provides 30 interchangable props that can be used to create an infinite number of reader-designed pictorial quilts. While not essential, this book is suitable for larger public library and quilting collections. Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.

Meet the Author

Some of Helen Scott's earliest memories are of playing under her grandmother's large quilting frames. There she worked on her quilts and those made by her daughters. When Helen started quilting in 1960, she chose applique. Having painted with oils, pastels, and watercolors for many years, Helen found that applique was like painting with cloth. She started teaching embroidery applique and quilting classes in 1982.
