    I like all your blocks and embellishments -- very funny and clever. But I'm sad, too. I love Sunbonnet Sues! She always brightens my days!

    MadQuiltler, You have made my day!!!! I can only hope that I don't miss seeing the final quilt in all it's glory!!! I love, love, love your blocks. Ellen

    I am keeping this one. It will most likely hang in the living room.

    Hanging in the living room, it will certainly set a mood.

    I am glad that so many of you understand my "off" way of looking at life.

    As for the people who don't like it and don't appreciate it. They were most likely not my target audience. I cannot hurt anyone's feelings without their permission. So if you choose to be offended. enjoy your righteous indignation. I do!

    Those are cute in a macabre sort of way.

    My only exception is to her meeting her demise by the hands of the Sioux. We usually don't hang out by the "Loo".

    I've always loved Sunbonnet Sue. Your blocks are so creatively done! Don't normally like "blood n guts" but you have done a superb job. Think you might want to consider a second career as a cartoonist.

    I must admit that I had a twinge of guilt for that one, but I couldn't resist the name.

    I guess you have to have a macabre sense of humor. Apparently, I do, because I think they are hilarious! MadQuilter, I guess you really are!

    I have never heard of bad Sunbonnet Sue or anything like it. Sure opens a world of opportunity. You are soooo talented in spite of having a warped sense of humor which I appreciate. Thank you.

    FANTASTIC !! The only Sun Bonnet Sue's I've liked. What a great imagination you have and what a good job you did fabricating them.

    Apparently there are several versions out there on ways to kill poor Sue. And from what I found out she is a serial killer as well, which probably explains her demise. ...haha

    These are hilarious. Don't know whether I'd spend so much time on them, but certianly appreciate that you do. You've done a great job.

    I kept looking at the one with the birds and finally realized that was an eyeball! It reminded me of when I went to the musical "Sweeney Todd" and people gradually realized during one of the songs what the pies were made from. You'd hear these groans coming out of the audience all through the song as people figured it out.

    Thanks for the laughs (and I love Sunbonnet Sue)

    Good for a smile and a chuckle! I'd love to be a fly on a wall in about 100 years when someone pulls this quilt out to look at it! ROFL

    Madquilter, you are a very warped person in need of serious help. That being said, loved the blocks, they are not only clever they are very well done. Have you seen "Sunbonnet Sue's True Story" by Linda Cantrell? Her "Sunbonnet Sue Goes on Jerry Springer" block has been going thru my head since I first looked at your work. Great minds think alike. How about Sue falling from a trapeeze? Or buried under her fabric stash?

    Oh, so you are helping by giving me more ideas? lol

    I actually have some more ideas. The shower scene in Psycho came to mind this morning. And then I want to put her in a rough play scene with Raggedy Ann, Raggedy Andy, Strawberry Shortcake and the Sock Monkey where they have SBS by the limbs and are tearing her apart. I have no idea where these thoughts are coming from. I'm really not a violent person. hehe

    OMG, those are the most hilarious things I've ever seen. Poor Sue. Don't you feel guilty for killing her off? So funny.
