Group Quilt by Quilting Wackos

Our Guild, Quilters by the Sea, has their quilt show every two years. This year it was held in April and they had a category for a Group Quilt. The Wackos decided we would enter. The idea was to make a block by decorating a skirt as it fits your personality. This could be pieced or applique.
This is not the best picture of the quilt but there is a poodle skirt, there is a red, white and blue skirt, a Mexican skirt an Asian skirt, all of them are just great. The shoes are to die for and some are holding a purse or walking their dog. After it was put together, Linda did the quilting.
But see the block, center/bottom? There is our slogan:
Wackos's Rule!
OH WAIT....we have no rules
Robin took a picture of herself in jeans and flip-flops and printed it on fabric. No skirt there.
This is my block, me in crop pants which I usually wear. No skirt there. I even went further, if you look real close, you'll see a tattoo on my left ankle. I always said, when I turn that certain age, I was going to get a tattoo. Well that certain age has come and gone and I still don't have a real tattoo. Just showing a rebellious side of my personality. LOL.
This quilt took 1st Place Group Quilt in the 2009, Quilters by the Sea , Quilt Show.
YEAH Wackos!!!
