The condition of the combination quilt, Sunbonnent Sue and Overall Bill, is excellent. It doesn't look to have ever been washed. The nice hand quilting at 7-8 stitches per inch is done in small clamshells. The pencil lines still show, so it appears not to have been washed or even actually used, if any. The applique is done nicely by hand and the black outline stitch around the figures accent the clothing. The fabrics used in the blocks coordinate, like the bonnet and the dress or the boys pants and shirt. The binding was made by turning the front to the back and machine stitched down. Pink sashing and backing. A nice quilt and ready to enjoy.
