Overall Sam Quilt

This was originally posted over at Suture for a Living on January 22, 2010.



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.  I have listed the quilt at my Etsy shop.
