Book Description

April 10, 2001
Bonnets evoke the mystique of a bygone day. If you cherished paper dolls as a child, these charming quilt block designs will bring back delightful memories. Choose from 15 Bonnet Girls, their children, menfolk, and pets and create a family. Depict movement and different scenes by simply changing the positions of bonnets, arms, hands, and legs. More than 30 props - hats, parasols, flowers, animals, and background settings - are interchangeable. Add lace, ribbons, beads, cords, and tassels for a sparkling finish. Lend a sense of weather by quilting wind, raindrops, snowflakes, or clouds. Included are more than a dozen background quilting designs - all suited for traditional applique, redwork, and embroidery.

Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

A favorite subject for appliqu , the familiar Sunbonnet Sue is always captured in side view with a huge bonnet obscuring her face. Sue has sometimes been called the quilt motif we love to hate for her "goody-goody" image. Nevertheless, for many quilters, Sunbonnet Sue brings back memories of simpler, more elegant scenes and times. Unlike any other book on this subject, this volume combines the author's passion for quilting, appliqu , embroidery, and drawing to create 18 bonnet-girl quilts. Scott also provides 30 interchangable props that can be used to create an infinite number of reader-designed pictorial quilts. While not essential, this book is suitable for larger public library and quilting collections.

Review

If you loved playing with paper dolls when you were a child, [this] is the book for you. This book offers you the opportunity to use your embroidery skills, as well as your applique. I would buy this book. -Connections newsletter

5.0 out of 5 stars Charming and versatile May 26, 2001
Format:Paperback
There is no way to describe how appealing these designs are if you have not seen them for yourself. It is like watching Little Women come to life through fabric. They are in every position and doing every daily chore you can imagine, including dipping their bare toes in the creek. Their gowns blow in the wind, they carry candles or cakes or babies. They fly kites with the children, teach school, offer up a baked turkey or decorate the tree. There are even three male figures to incorporate. Helen uses embroidery floss to appliqué the figures, which outlines all the pieces in sharp relief. She teaches you to braid hair, twist it in a bun or display a head of tousled curls. The pieces are infinitely interchangeable and all the faces are hidden by stylish bonnets. I don't do appliqué and my little girl is grown, but I love these every time I see them.

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have owned this book for a few years now and have thoroughly enjoyed sewing some of the patterns. Of course, it is my intent to make all of them, but... I do want to say that the patterns/instructions are thorough and easy to follow. There is always room for creativity. Needless to say, I was very excited to see that there is now another book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bonnet Girls July 3, 2001
Format:Paperback
This is a very useful book in creating applique design scenes for the bonnet ladies. The book comes with several different bonnet ladies and along with the different ladies come items like the little dog that is on the front cover. These accessorie items make the bonnet ladies come to life. This is not a beginning applique book but for someone more advanced.

Helen R. Scott's Bonnet Girls examines applique block designs which present eighteen Bonnet Girls, their children and pets in over thirty interchangeable props and backgrounds. Use this to recreate patterns of the past: each project opens with a color portrait of a finished work and provides pattern templates, materials dimensions and needs, and everything needed for a finished product.

These patterns are for large girls. I prefer a pattern that is no larger than will fit on a 12 inch block and these are much larger than that so I needed to reduce them in order... Read more
