    I have NEVER been a Sue fan either, so I think you blocks are just fabulous!!! Great creativity and how fun- you just can't get too serious over them!

    Hah!! These are hysterical. I love it! Very creative, well-done, and funny as heck.

    Not something that everyone will love (obviously!) but as someone who has plenty of experience with death of loved ones, I firmly believe that the best way to handle sorrow and pain is with laughter and art. When I hurt the worst, that's when I laugh the loudest, and these Sunbonnet Sue murders tickle that part of me, in a harmless and friendly sort of way.

    Of course, I'm a big Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett fan too, so maybe we're just similarly warped? LOL

    Me! give it to me! I love it! reminds me there are times to laugh! I have a SBS my mother-in-law made for her 1st child,84 years ago..It is so worn out you can hardly tell what it was!! She was and is still loved! Someone may be encouraged to make some beautiful out of bad feelings...Sue can take it!! she will not die!

    This is a quilt that will eventually hang in my house. Even my Mom thinks it's funny. Lighten up folks!

    Thanks Chasing Hawk.
    I agree with you Martina, that people need should lighten up and be more open minded. If everyone liked the same thing as everyone else, this would be a very boring world to live in.

    Martina, your drawing skills, creativity and applique work are great!

    I have never been a fan of SBS and normally find her totally booooooooring. Great way to add a bit of interest and intrigue and with your inventive mind Mad, I'm sure this could be a long term serial killing.

    I'm glad I got the opportunity to see closeup pics so I could appreciate your inventiveness and embellishments.

    Love it Martina, way more creative than following the beaten path.
    I love when Kyle (?) dies in every episode of SouthPark to be back in the next one .
    Sorrow for a drawing as if it were a child .... (chuckle)

    Oh my, lol - this is hilarious and so creative. Poor Sunbonnet Sue. I love the one where she is getting roasted. Thanks for the humor.

    I got some more ideas:
    How about FrankenSue and another Western version, like getting dragged behind "My little pony"?
    Of course there needs to be the bathroom scence from Psycho (although I need to be careful and maintain her modesty). lol

    Poor thing, she does get her cute butt in quite a pickle, doesn't she?

    These blocks are fantastic! I am not a fan of the other Sunbonnet Sue's but LOVE the ones with different methods of doing her in.
    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.

    Oh my ... now that would be for the Naughty SBS version, would it not?

    *snicker*

    I'm still laughing along with every twist this takes.
    And only wish I could be so creative with the ideas you have had and the skills you have shown to put the ideas to thread and fabric .... even a smidgeon of creativity, I will accept!

    Keep on MadQuilter ... Keep On!

    You can google "Bad (Sunbonnet) Sue Quilt" or "Killing Sue Quilt" to see more.

    They've been around since the '70s.

    Do NOT leave off "Quilt" when you google. Or you'll get an eyeful you DON'T want!

    MadQuilter! These are the BEST and MOST CREATIVE Killing Sue Blocks I've ever seen!

    You are a fabulous quilter with a lovely twisted imagination that tickles my fancy.

    Keep on showing us your blocks and please continue ignoring the self righteous quilt police.

    Oh! BTW, I love Sunbonnet Sue in all forms from killing her off, to the bad Sues doing naughty things like pushing over an outhouse, to the newest international Sues.

    If life gives you lemons, make Limoncello!

    I'm actually trying to come up with new versions on the theme that have not been done before. I did make an exception with Stewpot Sue (which you gals haven't seen yet). I still need to add a salt and pepper shaker to the pic though before I can unveil her.

    HAHA - naughty Sue in the pickle barrel. Now THAT could be censored by the admin. lol

    I think the Psycho shower scene would be superb. Another angle would be him stuffing her in the trunk of the car.

    These are hilarious! Who ever said there is not violence in the quilt world? Well, also nobody who ever read some of the great quilt murder mysteries, along with these dee-lightfully nasty blocks. Such great embellishment, and so clever. I must say the eyeball kinda grossed me out, but it's all in fun.
