sunbonnet-sue

yet more contemplation…hope I live long enough to accomplish all that I contemplate! 🙂 Sunbonnet sue… my youngest daughter is a bit dark…not goth but dark nonetheless…when she was a wee person my mom made old fashioned sun bonnets for both my girls and they were beyond cute…I found the bonnets when searching for a chunk of my stash I knew was somewhere…and though aw my babies bonnets…looking at my girls now I think the bonnets would mortify them..thus they are on display now (HA) but I also thought hey how about a dark rather disturbing sunbonnet sue quilt… sue in a snake since I just got a new snake…sue falling off a cliff…sun going super nova baking sue…um yeah very dark…I’ve printed 12 regulation sues and will be modifying them ala pencil over the weekend to see what I can come up will…guess I’m a bit touched…

Yeah…I’m killing off sunbonnet Sue

K…so a few fellow quilter’s think this is the cat’s pajamas and can’t wait to see the finish project…Other’s are disturbed verging on rather angry about it…here’s the deal…I’ve never been an average quilter, much less artist or human for that matter. I laugh at myself when I fall down… I giggle at off color jokes… I’m so outside the box it has been picked up as refuse and recycled…so when I started contemplating slaughtering Soo of the bonnet…I just saw it as yet another way to express my creativity and flamboyant eccentricness.  So yeah…I’m killing of sunbonnet sue…in 16 fabulous 12-inch square blocks!
