The Quilting Board had a thread running today about peoples least favourite quilt designs. One poster mentioned not liking ‘anything immoral e.g. sodomite quilts.’ I can’t even begin to imagine what that might look like. Presumably they would fall into the ‘non-traditional’ category.
Bargello quilts got lots of mentions as did log cabin quilts. I felt the same way about log cabin quilts until I made one and discovered the almost endless possibilities that come from varying the layouts.
I’m not fond of bargello quilts either and I detest Sunbonnet Sue and that Sam character who goes along with her. However, even Sunbonnet Sue has a redeeming side. Check out this link. It’s called The Sun Sets on Sunbonnet Sue and it shows a number of ways Sue might have met her demise in the 1970’s. It almost makes you feel a bit of sympathy for poor old Sue.
What’s your least favourite design?
Update: Anyone want to collaborate on a Death of Sunbonnet Sue in the 2000’s? I have worked out my take on her demise and it’s bound to offend some and delight others.
