These eight Sunbonnet Sue quilt squares were worked by my Grandmother Johanna Blevins sometime before 1950. They were given to my mother, Eunice Evelyn Hargett, about the time she and my father, Kenneth Blevins, were married in 1955. Mom, Eunice, gave them to me many years ago as a Christmas gift.
Mom stored them flat in a cedar chest all those years with the intention of a quilt. I have them stored in archival quality scrapbook page savers.
There are eight blocks, each with different flour sack fabric all approximately 10 X 11 inches. The background is thin muslin, faded and yellowed with time. The black detail is tiny hand stitches.

Dad told me this morning that his mother was always quilting and she made many quilts in her life. They lived in Globe Arizona at this time and would go to the small burg of Pine, to the Mormon church and make community quilts.
