Seems you have an unhealthy obsession with this man! Every third or fourth post has his picture. All hail the messiah!

I agree with scotbrit, this is getting too much I might just have to stop coming to whip up for a while. A Boycott of Whipup might be a good thing until they realize not everyone cares about this man.

hey guys – lighten up
You have to admit that the workmanship in this quilt is amazing – but that’s it for now I promise

Yeah, I agree with scotbriat and UPSET, this is getting to be too much. As far as the workmanship; so what? there are lots of quilts that are examples of great workmanship. Where are they on this blog? I will say this just one time: I AM SICK TO DEATH OF THE BO LOVE! Not everyone who reads this blog voted for him and we sure don’t want him crammed down our throats. We don’t have to read this blog and can certainly go somewhere else for craft inspiration

Wow, I hear sour grapes in several of the comments. To quote a famous King – “Can’t we all just get a long?” – Rodney King. I like the quilts. Quilts often document happenings in history. To those sour grapes out there – so sorry that people are gleeful and happy around you.

Thanks for showcasing the quilts and promoting the wonderful book. The quilts are all remarkable. I have a quilt of President Obama in the boook and I am very proud of it. I have also made a quilt of McCain and many different faces.

If you have any requests, I would be happy to make a quilt for any event.
