The NF20 Sunbonnet Sue in America swap had representatives for all
50 states plus Washington DC and a General US category. Blocks were
designed mostly by the swappers themselves (although some used published
sources), stitched either by machine or hand, and swapped with great
enthusiasm. While some of our swappers had to drop out because of circumstances
beyond their control, most of the group finished intact. Look at our
samples and enjoy the creativity of this wonderful group of ladies -
this was an experience not to be missed!
The theme for this swap was Sunbonnet Sue In America. 52 Blocks
of Sunbonnet Sue representing something about their selected state were
completed by each swapper. This was NOT a
traditional Sunbonnet Sue swap although your Sue could have the
traditional look. Each block was wonderfully imaginative.
New York Sue stood with her suitcase on the pier with the Twin Towers in
the skyline; Pennsylvania Sue hung out her Amish quilt on the
clothesline; South Carolina Sue wove a basket by the creek while Florida
Sue made a sandcastle on the beach; Wisconsin Sue was looking high and
low for her cow, while Minnesota Sue went to the barn to milk hers!
Louisiana Sue went bass fishing while Maine Sue went to visit a
picturesque Maine lighthouse only to get a lobster attached to her foot!
Michigan Sue flew her kite over the lake while Tennessee Sue went out
hunting for bear. Whether Sue was in Virginia, Massachusetts, Wyoming,
California or any of the other states she was imaginative, different,
and showed off something special about her chosen state.
