On a much lighter note...

My mother sent me this picture. This quilt was made in the seventies by a bunch of quilters who were sick of Sunbonnet Sue. It's called "The Sun Sets on Sunbonnet Sue", and it now resides at a Michigan State University museum.

Cut for a very large pic:

It's pretty obvious that this quilt was made in the 70's and early 80's. Skylab falls on her in one panel, another has her as a victim of Jonestown (the only one I really don't find funny), she's eaten by Jaws in another, cooked at Three Mile Island...damn, the 70's were fun!

I should point out that I actually love Sunbonnet Sue. My sister and I fought over a Sue quilt our great aunt made. Katie got to keep it (she had helped with the sewing), but her cat has destroyed it. I would have taken better care of it! Oh, well...
