    How many ways can you kill Sunbonnet Sue? This post is like the woman who shot her boyfriend, stabbed him 27 times and then slit his throat ear to ear. Guess she had the same sense of warped humor. I find this post very disturbing and equally disturbing are the people who think it is funny. I think it sends the wrong message to our children and future quilters!!! Quilting is suppose to be positive, not evil.

    I don't know. Give me some more time to investigate.

    It is sending a message that quilting can be very artistic and it is very positive. Just look at how many people enjoy it. Obviously you don't. That's OK. If you don't get my humor that is OK too. Hey, can I help it that poor Sue keeps running into these scrapes? Nope, so don't shoot the messenger.

    Oh I see you parsed my comment and left out the part that said:This post is like the woman who shot her boyfriend, stabbed him 27 times and then slit his throat ear to ear. Guess she had the same sense of warped humor.

    Yes, I edited. There is a HUGE difference between quilted/crafted pictures of an accident (or a crime) and a real life massacre. I think that most of the readers who enjoy this thread can tell the difference. If I take your logic to the next level, then I better not read any crime novels either, coz they are evil too. As for your cited example: I don't think it's funny in the least if anyone feels the need to do harm to another human being, let alone commit overkill. But in one thing you are 100% correct:, I do have a warped sense of humor. What's more, I really like my sense of humor.

    What a 'warped' imagination you have. I love those 'Sues'.

    That woman was and still is disturbed. I think one could not say she has a warped sense of humor.
    And I also think it is rather rude and crass of you to compare that vile person to Martina and her work.

    Martina's work doesn't convey the wrong message to current and future quilters. She merely shows a creative and fun side. Life isn't about being serious all the time. It's about feeling new things and ideas. Experiencing different aspects of human nature. It is not like Martina or any other quilter who has killed of Ol' Sue is a bad person. They are unique and different and a refreshing change of pace here in this world.

    I'd much rather let my aggressions out in a creative way than let them out on others. This project has helped me through a really dark phase in my life and I am glad that I came out in one piece at the other end. No worries, I have no desire to act out what I draw or embroider. I don't even remotely relate to the comparison to someone evil. Everyone has an opinion and I am glad that so many of you enjoy the blocks.

    Besides....when I get right down to it: I am nowhere in these pictures. I am not wielding any implement of destruction and I don't push or pull her into peril. Me thinks that Sue has to carry some responsibility in where she goes and what she does. There are always consequences! For the rest - it's just dumb luck. lol

    I just don't know what to say... Poor Sue. But I am impressed!
    Why do I keep trying to find the "like" button?

    For all of you who object, you must have at least a little morbid curiosity. Otherwise why would you read a thread titled My Mad Murder Spree - Killing Sunbonnet Sue?

    Nanny's Dollface: Thank you for the perspective. I have been biting my tongue all day. I don't want to place undue emphasis on what are clever, fun, artful quilt blocks but they take a sugary young persons quilt and make it relate to the adult world. I have been at funerals where people told jokes. They were not minimizing the sorrow, they were reducing the tension. I appreciate the change of focus provided. I don't want to be deadly serious all the time.

    Oh! Martina, I love your madcap sense of humor. Wish I had thought of this. Thought of Sue as cute when I started quilting but no longer. Good for you.

    You beat me to posting the link to one of the originals.

    Read the names of the quilters. I think some of you will be surprised ........
