Mod Bee 3 - May Block for E

Here is my May block for E. She requested a modern Sunbonnet Sue. Never appliqued before so was a little apprehensive... but after watching a couple tutorials on youtube things fell into place. Good excuse to break out the MistyFuse I scored at Quilters Take Manhattan last year!

I came across The Sun Sets on Sunbonnet Sue while browsing around for inspiration (randomly found it here in a book called Feminist messages: coding in women's folk culture). I was really tickled by the whole thing and showed the excerpt & subversive quilt to my boyfriend. We started bouncing ideas around for what my block should be. He said that Sue looked like Kenny from South Park in that quilt. Then he mentioned Darth Vader and I ran with it.
