Bonnets evoke the mystique of a bygone day. If you cherished paper dolls as a child, these charming quilt block designs will bring back delightful memories. Choose from 15 Bonnet Girls, their children, menfolk, and pets and create a family. Depict movement and different scenes by simply changing the positions of bonnets, arms, hands, and legs. More than 30 props - hats, parasols, flowers, animals, and background settings - are interchangeable. Add lace, ribbons, beads, cords, and tassels for a sparkling finish. Lend a sense of weather by quilting wind, raindrops, snowflakes, or clouds. Included are more than a dozen background quilting designs - all suited for traditional applique, redwork, and embroidery.
If you loved playing with paper dolls when you were a child, [this] is the book for you. This book offers you the opportunity to use your embroidery skills, as well as your applique. I would buy this book. -Connections newsletter

This is a great book! The patterns are whimsical and fun. I used a number of vintage fabrics for the dresses. More like this please!
