A few years ago, I organized a quilt challenge with a food theme.  This was my
entry --- an attempt at a visual pun.  The Betty Grable-ish cheesecake pin-up
girl is holding a plate of cheesecake and she's surrounded by traditional
Broken Dishes blocks, with broken plates appliqued here and there.
$550
One night, not long after completing
"Cheesecake" I had a bout of insomnia.
 
Even though I'm generally violently
opposed to Subonnet Sue in all her
various incarnations, somehow at 3 AM
doing a Cheesecake Sue seemed
funny.

I've got to admit she still makes me grin.
