Sunbonnet Sue Irish Chain EQ7 Design

Back in November of 2014, my sister gave me 18 vintage appliquéd Sunbonnet Sue blocks, made by our grandmother, great-grandmother, aunts, great-aunts, and some of their friends, neighbors, and even a favorite teacher or so.  Here are close-ups of the blocks I took back then:  Sunbonnet Sue blocks

Today I played around with them in EQ7, adding in my own pictures.  (The Sunbonnet Sues won't fill up quite so much of the blocks, in actuality.)  I'll use a background that closely matches the backgrounds on the Sunbonnet Sue blocks.  Here's one of the possibilities:

If the blocks are about 13" square, this design will produce a 96" x 96" quilt.
