The History of The Sunbonnet Sue quilt pattern.
“That girl with the bonnet”, Sunbonnet Sue, Dutch Doll, Bonnie Bonnet, Sun Bonnet Babies… whatever the block pattern is called, the Sunbonnet Sue block is one of the most widely recognized quilt block patterns.You’ll find the block made into nursery quilts, appliqued onto clothing and decorated with ribbons and lace. The Sue figure has been depicted working, playing, and getting into mischief. The Sue block has even given rise to Sunbonnet themed quilts. Sue is eliminated in “the Death of Sunbonnet Sue” or celebrated in “Sunbonnet Sue comes of age”.The design of a playful girl with a big bonnet can be traced back to illustrators who worked in the late 1800s and early 20th century.
