Unusual, possibly offensive to some, quilts

I stumbled on a couple of quilt in my travels. These are quilts that seriously push the boundaries.  The first one is OLD – It’s called  The Suns Sets on Sunbonnet Sue and depicting the death of Sue, in all manner of interesting ways.  With blocks named Run in with the Mob (Sue, with a cement block tied to her ankle) Eaten by a Snake (Sue, as a silhouette within the belly of a snake) and Sunbonnet Soup (in a cannibal’s pot) most of them made me giggle.

The other one, I have dithered and dithered about whether or not to post the actual image or just the link to it.  I’ve gone for the image, because I don’t mind it and I do love the quilt.  With luck, those of a sensitive nature will have read the title and bypassed this post entirely.

Called Give a F*ck, it is explained by the creator thusly:

In this project, a group of quilters challenge several boundary notions about quilts. Now that text in designs is acceptable, should the text be censored? We express our potty-mouths in patchwork using the ultimate in four-letter words.

While I wouldn’t make this exact quilt (but I totally would have if the idea had occurred to me) , I do love the word blocks idea.  And that is one to file away for the future…
