    We'll plan a wake as soon as you return from Germany! Have you watched Monsters Inc? Cute animated film. Lots of monsters in those closets to get ideas from. You could make it's skin quilted patchwork. How about a ghost whose white sheet is replaced with a quilt, with holes for the eyes, like Casper, another non-violent cartoon?
    Mad, Mad, you are Mad!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Wish you were home from Germany sooner so when I go to retreat in California in May you could be there. We'll miss ya....Had to come see what the to-do was......Let's see 4 to 100....That's a great score.
    I have to admit ,I was one of the 6 original KSBS makers......It was done off the QB....
    There are quilts in the museums and at quilt shows showing this theme...
    You do have quite the imagination......
    I'm sitting at the retreat in Van ALystyne and most of us read this and remember well.
    Loved the part about killing off sam now too.....
    It always amazes me the ones who come in and read and look and stay here to comment when they don't like it.....
    Love the ones who took it for what it is.....a playful way to express yourself......
    Hugs, Mad.....

    I took my 3 year old nephew to see the very first Harry potter film. I had worked it out with mum if he didn't like film or. Sit still etc. hired a booster seat all prepared. He sat on his legs between myself and his older brother and never moved or spoke. At the end walking to the car asked hi. If he enjoyed it yes but he didn't like the dog. That to me was a quick shock . He is 13 well adjusted trains to be a. GB canoeist in 4 years time. No. Effect I am sure these pictures would harm nobody and are tame to the imagination of children
    Finished is better than a UFO

    Thanks for the chuckle. I'm really a tame and strangely well-adjusted person. lol

    My zodiac is the bull and I am a true Taurus which means that I have a lot of patience even when somone waves a red flag in my face. However, there comes a time when the patience runs out and I take care of business swiftly and concisely. But then I don't hold a grudge either.

Now I must admit that I also love the Kill Bill movies and they make me lol but I have absolutely no use for Seinfeld, Adam Sandler, and the 3 Stooges. Go figure.

    OMG, I love Pulp Fiction. I do enjoy most of Quentin Tarantino's earlier works. I didn't care for Kill Bill though. Reservoir Dogs was amazing as well as Both Dusk to Dawns.

    I have one more to finish this weekend and then I was going to post the next installment. This will include:
    PMS?
    Charlotte meets Sue (Spider's Web)
    Carrie Sue (not everyone saw that one on this thread - it is buried lol) That one is from Steven King's movie Carrie.
    Giant Stew Sue
    Sam's Game (an adaptation from Steven Kings's novel "Gerald's Game) This one I may not embellish since it won't go on the quilt. It does not match stylistically and it is too creepy - even for me.

    and the ones I got from the swap:
    Hell's Angel
    Road to Paducah
    Amy Sue Winehouse
    Menopause Sue
    Paciderm Poo Sue.

    I promise that the names will fit the pictures. lol

    MadQuilter, I've read every post, day by day, and admire you for your restraint towards those with their knickers in a twist: thank goodness.

    I do not want to see this thread vanish: I am soooooo looking forward to seeing the next installment of blocks.

    Hmmmm ... how 'bout Sweet Sue sinking into the La Brea Tar Pits?

    One need look no further than the Bible for gorry stories: SBS and Goliath, SBS on a cross, the martyrdom of SBS, SBS miss the Ark, Seth and SBS, SBS turns to salt pillar at the distruction of Sodom and Gammorah, SBS in Egypt, The Death Angel passes over SBS. Man/Woman have been evil from the fall. To think we're sickly sweet is not reality. I've never met an adult who was warped due to reading the stories of the Bible as a child.

    Well, this has certainly been an entertaining thread. First off, my kudos to you Martina for being such a creative person. I too am on the positive side and looking forward to the next block and all the future ones, too. You and I would get along well, because I never, ever could stand watching the 3 Stooges, either. Love all the neat ideas your mind comes up with. Keep us posted.

    I and hubby both laughed looking at these. Definitely a different spin on Sunbonnet Sue.
