This is a PHOTOCOPY of a Vintage Mail Order Quilt Pattern to make a classic Sunbonnet Sue quilt with her holding an Umbrella or Parasol. The pattern dates to the 1940s. It is perfect for the quilter who wants to make her own piece of history. The first picture shows a single quilt piece and the second picture shows the whole quilt. The pieces are assembled on a diagonal and a finished block is 8" square. Instructions are given for either a Single Bed (62X96) which takes 80 blocks to make, or a Double Bed (74X96) which takes 96 blocks to make. I include a black and white copy of the instructions and the complete pattern. I have IMPROVED THE PATTERN for easier use by printing enlarged instructions for easier reading. It's just one more way that I am always thinking of the customer first here at MJ's Vintage Patterns. Please email me with any questions that you have.

This pattern was originally printed October 4, 1941. It was NOT copyrighted and became part of the public domain upon its publication, October 4, 1941.
Current Shipping Special: US SHIPPING is FREE!!! It helps me if you pay for all of your purchases at one time (Paypal charges a per transaction fee, so it saves me money if you can pay for them all at once.) Remember, you can purchase any number of patterns and US shipping is FREE regardless of my cost!!!
I SHIP WORLDWIDE!!!
INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING (including Canada) is the actual cost. Shipping is calcuated by weight and each pattern weights something different. Most orders will fit into a Flat Rate envelope, so that is typically the maximum you will pay. As of January 2013 a Flat Rate envelope is $23.95 to most locations. In the case of very large orders or several doll clothing patterns, it could be more. If you are concerned about shipping and would like an exact quote for multiple items, then please email me a list of the patterns you are interested in purchasing.
I do combine International orders to save you on the shipping costs. In order to receive your shipping discount, you can send me a payment request through eBay when you are done shopping, or just wait. I send combined invoices through eBay on a daily basis with the discounted shipping.
All shipments are automatically insured!!! I guarantee your package will arrive or I will reship it at my cost. Remember international shipments (including Canada) take longer to arrive. Occasionally this can even be 6-8 weeks.
I always try to ship as soon as possible. My handling time is 1 business day (business days are Monday through Friday except for holidays when the post office is closed.) I live on the west coast and do my eBay work first thing in the morning - if your payment is in by 8am, then your order will ship that day.
I guarantee the quality of my copies for as long as I am selling on eBay - not just a few days or a week, but for as long as I am here!!! So, you can buy with confidence.
I absolutely guarantee that my copies are the BEST QUALITY you will find on eBay. My copies are clear and readable. If you ever find a piece of a pattern that isn't clear, I will remake it for you (at my expense, of course.)
I offer a LIFETIME guarantee on the pattern copies that I make and sell. I will ALWAYS correct any errors that I make. No sale is ever final and I will do everything reasonable to make sure that you are a satisfied customer. eBay has always been really good to me and I am really good to my customers in turn.
