    Sunbonnet Sue's Nightmares - documented in QAYG method

    After a long time, I finally finished it and I am pleased as punch. The only thing missing is a sleeve so I can hang her up. Here is the list of blocks:

    Row 1: Calamity Sue - Roadkill Sue* - Soudini (drowned in the dunk tank) - Voodoo Sue
    Row 2: Kudzu (magic act gone wrong) - Pachyderm Poo Sue* - BBQ Sue on the Spit - Hell’s Angel Sue*
    Row 3: Stew Pot Sue - Eagle Fodder Sue - Hotflash Sue* - Frankensue
    Row 4: Reptilian Squeeze - Sue’s Web - Divine PMS - Hoochie Sue*
    Row 5: SueShi - Sue meets the Birds - Alien Abduction - Sue meets the Sioux on her way to the Loo,

    Blocks marked with * were created by dear friends in a swap.

    What a wonderful and twisted sense of humor you have... thanks for sharing. Your detail in the blocks is frightening and amazing.

    your quilt is hysterical!!! Love all the different Sue's you came up with. So much to look at. I love it all.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    I am glad you finished it. I have been wondering if you did. It is a wonderful quilt. I remember all the drama that went on when you first showed them on here. Have a great day, and thanks for sharing.

    It reminds me of the "Mr. Bill" skits of SNL years ago. "Oh Nooooooooooooo!".

    Dream as if you'll live forever. Live as if you'll die today.

    Some people are like Slinkies - not really good for anything, but you still can't help but chuckle when you see one tumble down the stairs.

    When I watched the play "The Quilters" years ago, there was a scene where the younger sister, mad at her older sister for quilting so many Sun Bonnet Sues, and at having to quilt at all, made one of these for that older sister. It was hysterical in the play. The quilt wasn't shown, but the scream from the older sister when she saw it was quite clear. LOL

    Interesting modern twist on good old Sunbonnet Sue.
