Christmas Exchange Block

Tomorrow at our quilt club meeting, we will be exchanging Christmas quilt blocks. We each bring two 12.5 in. X 12.5 in. blocks and will receive two block in exchange. We put our names and the year on the blocks. I decided to make a Christmas Sunbonnet Sue. (I didn't trim my blocks to size, I figure it's better if they are too large rather than too small)

I made the bonnet using vintage green velour, the kind of fabric robes were to made of. I added a purchased flower on the back of the hat band.

I made a poinsettia using red ultra suede with beads for the center.

The background fabric is Fairy Frost. The bottom of the skirt is trimmed with a ruffled lace.
