Our guild is in the process of making a banner that will be used to identify our group at various public events. The banner will be made up of blocks contributed by guild members, so each member has been asked to make a block that represents their personal quilting style. My first thought was to make a nine-patch, my favorite block, but I thought I should be a little more creative than that. I'm not really a fan of Sunbonnet Sue or applique for that matter, but I think this block represents me well. Sunbonnet Sue is steeped in tradition, but as you can see by her dress, she's not afraid to show her modern side either!
