This quilt is made from antique quilt blocks found at an estate sale in the mid-1990s. The pattern is the male version of Sun Bonnet Sue and is called Overall Sam. Five of the six blocks have a red handkerchief in the Sam’s back right pocket. I put the blocks together and then had a friend hand quilt it for me using Baptist Fan quilting. The blocks are 14” square. The quilt is 35.5” X 53.5”.Here are close photos of two of the blocks.
