Format: Paperback
What a wonderful fun idea, the lovely Sunbonnet Sue in international dress - usually holding some item indicating the country her dress represents - castanets and frills on the frock, a cactus plant, snowflake, thistle etc. All patterns are full size all you have to do is get cutting and sewing, brilliant! The book is nicely presented with plenty of templates, and ideas for the applique, easy to add your own touches in the way of quilting or extra embroidery.

Interesting to see that sunbonnet sue has traveled throughout the world, a good way to introduce kids to various costumes and maybe get them to make them for themselves

Perfect for quilters who already use Sue in other projects 15 Feb 2011
By Midwest Book Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
International Sunbonnet Sue packs in nearly fifty sunbonnet designs that capture other cultures and places around the world. In each sue is dressed in her country's traditional costume and holds a symbolic souvenir, making this a pick for any quilter familiar with the traditional Sunbonnet motif. The opportunities to produce quilts that reflect heritage or travels using the Sunbonnet design makes this a fascinating approach to a traditional pattern - and perfect for quilters who already use Sue in other projects.

international sunbonnet sue 21 Mar 2011
By nancy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
got to love the sue. sunbonnet is a pattern that has been around for generations. this is a very nice variation on the theme. i can look at the cover and on most of the sue's guess what country they are from and get it correct. the patterns are full size and easy to use. there is a finished image to look at for fabric ideas and a good full size pattern page. there is a good variety of sue patterns. this would be a good addition to your sunbonnet sue book collection. the book was in mint condition.

Beautifully presented designs for international Sunbonnet Sue applique by excellent artist. The 50 designs are smart and well-designed. I hope the author continues to draw (I could use patterns for all 21 of the Spanish-speaking countries, for instance, and more African nations)our beloved Sue!

A classic quilting icon goes international 19 Mar 2011
By Patti Ives - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Sunbonnet Sue is a quilting icon. It seems that beloved silhouette of Sue in her bonnet and billowing skirt has been seen in one form or another for decades. Now, Debra Kimball, MD has designed a series of 49 Sue blocks that feature an International theme. In "International Sun Bonnet Sue" each block design captures the essence of a country from around the globe. Not only is our International Sue dressed in her country's traditional costume she also hold a symbolic souvenir. Example: Finland, in this block Sue is wearing a traditional costume of Finland while holding a large snowflake. The blocks can be done either by hand or machine appliqué. After playing with the blocks in the book you will want to branch out and create a traveling Sue of your own. There are hints in the book to help you work on different aspects of a particular block but it is assumed you have a favorite appliqué method and you would be using that for most of the work. Sunbonnet Sue fans will want this book.
