    I watched the movie this morning ... an older version that's supposedly very close to the book. There really is a HUGE variety of blocks that could be made! So far I'm working on:

    The Queen of Hearts (posted a pic of it previously)
    Roses being painted red
    A cupcake with a notation that says "Eat Me"
    A mushroom with a blue caterpillar on it
    Plus a couple of others that I'm still contemplating

    Ya know ... when I joined this forum almost 2 years ago, I sure never expected that I'd make a block that says "Eat Me" on it! LOL!

    I just got some fabric with playing cards on them I was thinking of using for some simple blocks. I'm also digitizing some images for embroidery. I found a bunch of tea pots and cups I was thinking of using as a reference for the "mad" tea party with mad hatter, march hare and the door mouse(?).

    I was also thinking of raw edge applique for a caterpillar

    What's everyone else thinking?

    I'm beginning to think that this would be a fun quilt to have when a grand-daughter comes to spend the night. What background colors are the rest of you thinking about? I'm thinking black would show off everything very well.

    There are over 80 characters in the story, if I counted correctly. Here's a list:

    Okay, here are my 4 sets. The blue caterpillar/mushroom block is 12-1/2" square. The "Eat Me" cupcake block is 6-1/2" square. The Queen of Hearts is 6-1/2" square. And the rose/paintbrush block is 9-1/2" wide by 6-1/2" tall. I probably won't make any more sets except for my personal use. I just wanted to get these done before the Boomerang swap starts. Thanks for letting me play.

    Thanks! Yes, they're all finished, but only because I happened to have a few free nights to sew, plus I needed to "escape" from some stress. I've got a ton of stuff on my mind right now ... mainly trying to get the insurance stuff straightened out so we can replace DH's hailstorm-totaled truck. Sewing is one of my "escapes".
