The demise of Sunbonnet Sue

Whether you realize it or not, you are probably familiar with Sunbonnet Sue. That's the name of the Holly Hobby-type pioneer girl who appears on tons of country craft type items, including quilts. Glad to see that by the time this quilt was made 30 years ago, some people were already fed up with the smarmy, down-home traditionalism, and sent the hussy to meet her maker in a variety of interesting ways. This is the earliest example of an "alternative" quilt I have found, and it also makes me very happy!
