Sunbonnet Cthulu or How a Comic Horror Author does Quilts

I did take a quilt class once, a "block of the month" one. The theme was "Get out of the box." My hardest part? Staying inside their box making the quilt block with the colors and patterns they suggested.

I dropped out after having a disagreement over what bright colors really were. Apparently pastel pink and purple and light blue are bright. Not in my book. This is bright:
This is only the layout picture. I'll have to post a finished picture after I take one. And some pics of other quilts I've made. BTW, my daughter absolutely loves this quilt. And yes, those are mostly food prints.


  1. Hmm, I think that I'll have to start going to classes again. Hehehe.

  2. I love those pillows. They look so sci-fi. :D

    Looks pretty awesome to me.

  3. Thanks! I got great reviews for the pillows. My friend chaired the World Horror Con in 2008 here in Salt Lake. We wanted a guest gift that recognized the Utah traditions but still had something to do with horror. So we came up with Sunbonnet Cthulu. Sick, wrong, and twisted no matter which way you spin it. I love the whole idea.

  4. I love my quilt. It brings a smile to my face and warmth to my feet after a long day.

  5. Is it queen-size? I forget how big it is. I need to know so I can make my evil plans for the summer. *rubbing hands and chuckling evilly*


Keep it clean, keep it nice.
