    Hey Mad, this thread has really sparked my imagination....now really thinking of a series of blocks with a Penthouse Sue theme. I've already got three planned in my head, including the one we discussed in our pm's.

    I know my guild sisters hate the "bad Sues, but I like them and I like what you have done. (I also like to play with more traditional sues.)

    I disagree, isn't there enough violence in the world. Quilts are a source of joy and comfort and should never glorify evil.

    Then please do not attempt the disappearing nine patch pattern. Cutting up a tradition quilt block would be contradicting your statement. Ruining everything?? REALLY?

    ...and doing this gives me and many others much joy. So we have to agree to disagree.

    Alikat, I don't think you can post pictures of the Penthouse Sue coz those would DEFINITELY violate the decency clause of the QB. lol

    Maybe someone could do an aged Barbie - what does Barbie look like when she sags, gains weight and gets wrinkles?

    Hi Mad! I can't believe how many people take your creativity seriously. I love it! So glad I finally saw all of the blocks together but haven't got the energy to read so many people dissing your work. I have strong moral and Christian beliefs too but I do appreciate a keen sense of humor, you have it my friend That being said, I have always found SBS way too cutesy and from now on when I see one, I will chuckle remembering your rendition. Carry on, I think it is the perfect therapy!

    My hubby was just laughing as I showed him the pictures. While I don't care for SBS... I would not consider "harming" her, your creativity and work are amazing.

    "The Birds" scared the daylights out of me years ago. It's very artistic, however I would have nightmares if I had to use a quilt like that!

    I would say that these are insane, but I don't want to make you mad. Thank goodness my name is not Sue! Oh my!

    Ah, yes. This is the Mad I know and love. Excellent work. You're much more creative and talented than I was with this.
    Becoming a grandmother is wonderful. One moment you're just a mother. The next you are all-wise and prehistoric.

    What a wonderful idea! My daughter absolutely hates Barney. Maybe I could do one for her that kills of Barny like SBS!

    I have a friend who is obsessed with SBS and would see red if she saw these, but I find them hilarious!

    Everyone's opinion is viable but we have to keep everything in perspective and draw a line between reality and creativity. I love horror movies and crime shows but I also shed tears when I see some news stories or animal rescue shows. Draw that line and keep them separate as they should be.

    Mad, I think you've handled yourself with dignity and poise through this thread.

    Hmmm....I would love to see a teletubbies quilt done like this.....

I must say the eyeball kinda grossed me out, but it's all in fun.
    Once saw a play about this - LOL!

    Read all the posts and am amazed at the different responses from people. I am not a big SBS fan cause she is just too cutesie for me but I did enjoy these blocks. Very clever. Interesting how the reactions of people can vary depending on what is being presented. A close friend saw Pulp Fiction and walked out. I ended up seeing it twice cause it was so stupidly funny even if it was gross. Great that we live in a place that allows us to express varying opinions, isn't it?
