Stickin' It To The QP

I've heard of the Quilt Police but haven't ever actually met one of their rank...or maybe I just wasn't paying attention.  This might also explain why I'm not currently wearing neon and living behind bars.

Charming lass, isn't she?  Looks like she could bite the head off a 16-penny nail. 

She's intended to be a hanging of some sort, but I thought she looked better like this...

I debated between rice and crushed walnut shells...if she starts sprouting we'll know I didn't choose wisely.  As she is now suits my mood just fine and it's been very cathartic stabbing her with my butterfly-head pins.  Scary, ain't it?

Even though she's a whipped WIP, I do believe I'll link up to WiP Wednesday at freshly pieced

Happy quilting, y'all and if you run into me, beware...I still got a lotta pins left ;)


  1. I love the antique sewing machine she's leaning on. Are you sure she doesn't look like your mother-in-law or something. Those pins look pretty vicious!

    1. I confess, jabbing her with pins is a whole lotta fun!

  2. I love that you used flat head butterfly pins. LOL!

  3. Oh! That is great. I ran in to a member of the QP a few weeks ago. Wouldn't talk to me when she found out I do my bindings by machine.

    I need some of those pins - not that I would use them. I have pin cushions all around but I never use pins.

    I have your machine's older sister. I know mine is the older because mine doesn't have any numbers on the tension dial. I don't miss that but I sure wish she had a seam guage on the plate.

    1. Mary, you machine-binding heathen LOL!!

      The pins came from JoAnn's and I admit I pin my blocks to death so my pin stash gets a LOT of use.
