    I have to say, this is the funniest post ever!!! I agree you should get an award for it. Don't think I have laughed this much in years. Must say, I don't need to clean my contacts now. lol
    As for making the quilt for your Mom and seeing how long it took her, or anyone else, to find them, it would have taken my Mom (rest her soul) about two seconds. She could spot an open zipper (on a man of course) a mile away. She was such a hoot, really miss her!!
    Can't wait for you to post the finished quilt. Just make sure you get a picture of him when you give it to him. That will be the "priceless" picture.
    Thanks so much for sharing and letting us get in on the fun.

    Love it!

    Not sure what you could use for fabrics, but you could also cut squares of the black and red, and silhouette stitch "positions" -lips, even x's and o's for hugs and kisses, playboy bunny ears...you know what I mean! Also, sew black lace pieces over the red and vice versa, making lace squares.

    To the poster who said "too old" -- no way! Never too old for fun! ;)

    For balance you need some "boobys" too.

    I love the idea of blocks with silhouettes maybe covered with a layer of lace as suggested.

    Love the name - Love the story - Love the smile you put on my face. I have no suggestions, but still smiling. :-)

    Love beads! Don't forget them! And I keep thinking of those black silhouettes--on tie-dye they would look awesome--about 18" blocks. Did you know that you can make fake tie dye using markers and plain ol' rubbing alcohol?

    How about some silhouettes in spike heels, you could quilt fish net stockings on and nothing else. Or a busty girl burning her bra!!

    I've seen a pattern that looks like zippers, that would make an interesting touch... either as outer border or around the center print, something like that

    Agree on both counts!! We use a specific kind of vibratory device for seed pans on our machines and my husband (who is NO prude) was horrified when he googled "vibrators". Also not recommended.

    Love the idea of black silhouettes.

    love the story too. Sounds like it could have come from Margarita night at the quilt guild when they decided on the next challenge quilt.

    The only porn movie I remember from the 70s(not that I really watched them) is "Fritz the Cat" which is more kitch than porn with a lot of cartoon animals.

    Might have to Spoonflower it. I really wanted to put some of the fabric in a quilt for my mother to hang in her family room, then see how long it took her to spot the penises. Bwaaa haa haaa!!!
    Oooooooh that's naughty! LOL I can imagine my Mom noticing that!! Love it! I'll be keeping an eye on this thread...sounds entertaining!

    It's kinda cute and it looks like something from the tv show Jerseylicious.

    Porn? I don't know. I've never seen a porn movie but I think they are probably filled with pink skin, not animal skin. I like yours better.

    First let me say...what a way to start the day....I LOVE THIS THEME!....

    There have been many quilts/art pieces using this theme. However trying to find them on the internet is well...a waste of time...and a shock the system!

    YOur fabrics remind me of a Round bed I had once...a relic of the 70's "SEX RULES" days! I do like the idea of the black silhoutte shapes, and corsets...two classic styles that say sexy, but not raunchy!

    Do keep this topic as a diary and let us know how it goes...!

    PS..a little black leather would not be a bad thing either!

    It's great to see so many ideas and support for this theme! I might end up doing a sampler, just so I can incorporate all these ideas!

    Have you tried a 'Curves Without Templates' pattern? They are so easy to do and are sooo sooo arty-farty modern. Would be perfect with your fabric.
