Scrappicinio and Queen Quilta are tied!

Peggy said...

I like Queen Quilta and Faith Free Motion Jones! You both totally look like you mean business!

Deb Robertson said...

I like Ryan - he looks so meanie, but we all know he's a big softie!!

A.J. Dub. (Amy) said...

They are all pretty awesome.

I like Amy "Stitch Rippa" Friend's photo and name and Ryan "Sewja Boi" Walsh's tats.

This is going to be fabulous!

DianeY said...

Well, Stash Slasha & Queen Quilta have a slight edge over Rest of Field! How fun!

Sinta Renee said...

Oh yes, you guys are a force to be reckoned with! Faith Free Motion Jones is totally to one I "identify" with!!! Can't wait to see what you come up with!

Colleen said...

Im not sure I can make that choice. They're all pretty effective. Though knowing Jon I cant stop laughing!. I think Jeni is the least effective, she is too sweet to be in a gang.

Mandy Todd said...

Gotta go with Faith Free Motion Jones - totally brings back memories of the Fresh Prince and what I imagine Will Smith would be doing if he went from rapping to quilting.

Amy Friend said...

Well, since you asked...Faith's is awesome. I loved your first shot showing your dental work too ;)

Fran said...

They are all pretty funny. My favorite though is probably Ryan because I love the tattos on his fingers and the name. Too funny!

Lee said...

Peace out, brah! : )

tahoe34 said...

Definitely Faith Free Motion Jones!!!! Love the green machine on her shoulder!!!

Ali M said...

Wow, quite an interesting take on some of my favorite bloggers...although Shannon "Scrapuccino" Cook doesn't have my favorite gangsta name, I love the pincushion ring and other accessories, awesome.

Andrea said...

hahaha i love faith's!! it's the machine she's got balanced on her shoulder that kills it :)

mascanlon said...

Oh Katy 'stash slasher' for sure! Always talking trash...quilt trash that is

Kelly Smith said...

I love Ryan's Sewja Boi tattoo the best, although all the pictures are hilarious!

Faith Jones said...

I still can't stop laughing about all of these! Can't wait to be in the gang with you!

Steven and Ginger said...

Queen Quilta you look pretty mean!
Can't wait to see the tutorials!

Mindy said...

This is great! I love them all, but I'd have to say Faith Freemotion Jone's pic is my fav. The Hello Kitty sewing machine on a gangsta girl cracks me up!

Sandra :) said...

OMG that is the funniest post I've ever seen - each picture and bio had me in stitches - what a fun bunch! Scrapuccino Cook looks like she could do serious damage if you dived into her basket of scraps, LOL!

Netarie said...

Queen Quilta because she is royalty and I love the fabric and scissors. Second is Faith Free Motion because I admire anyone who can free motion quilt and have it not look like a small child was operating the machine.

Andrea said...

I love them all! They are so fun. My favorite is probably Katy 'Stash Slasher' Jones. lol Can't wait to see all the fun projects.

Rebecca said...

This is cracking me up... the photos are fantastic!
I am in love with Free Motion's turquoise sewing machine, and I think Sewja Boi's name is hilarious... I love that the A is even an Anarchy Symbol, but my heart belongs to Queen Quilta.
I can't wait to see what you guys cook up. I really love Art Gallery Fabrics, they are so soft and the colors are so vibrant!

Gill said...

Great pics!
I like Faith 'Free Motion' Jones because of that fabulous sewing machine! I want one!!

Bailey said...

Lol, love them all but Sewja Boi cracked me up big time! How fun.

Megan said...

Those pics are hilarious! I like Lee "The Feed Dogg" Heinrich and Scrappicino.

true2beeme said...

Yours of course...because it is you;-). I do love Faith's with the sewing machine as well! Very cute idea...

sunnieday4u said...

I'll have to go with Queen Quilta and MC Hemmer. Lots of fun.

Maureen Cracknell Handmade said...

I can't stop laughing!! This is going to be SO much fun!!

Gabriella said...

I love Jeni .. is much fun to sew her in this picture ... in a "gang mood!"So much fun

Jenna said...

Of course you!! But I am also in love with Faith Free Motion Jones!! I seriously am thinking about finding our where her turf is & jump her for that sewing machine!! ;)

suemac said...

Ryan Walsh is just too funny with that baby face. Can't take him too seriously. You, on the other hand, are someone to be taken seriously.

Patty said...

Katie Stash Slasher cracked me up, Yeah Boi!

Melissa said...

Free motion jones with the machine on her shoulder!!! Lol!!

Sarina said...

You look like you could be pretty mean with those scissors! I also love Amy "Stitch Rippa" Friend. But all the pics are "darling"! Dare I actually say that?!

Laurel said...

oh my gosh, you just made my day - how hysterical!! since i read most of their blogs, it's, um... difficult to see them in their "new" personas. i have to say that "stash slasher" would not be someone that i would like to run into in a dark alley!

WandaFish said...

Well I wouldn't want to mess with Queen Quilta!! You guys rock and I love all the details in your pics and bios :)
A couple of faves are Faith 'Free Motion' Jones taking her machine to the streets and Amy 'Stitch Rippa' Friend with her cute tat and designer rippas!!
This is going to be so much fun - I can't wait to see more!

Wendy Wiesen said...

I have to say, Faith Free Motion really made me laugh. This group is too funny!!!

Kristy @cottonaddiction said...

OMG! I can't stop laughing at Katy's face making skills! I've gotta go with the Stash Slasher.

Susie at ProsperityStuff said...

Too funny! I guess my favorite would be Faith "Free Motion" Jones, because her pose, with the entire sewing machine, seems the funniest to me. Gotta say, though, you look great, too!

Heidi Staples said...

Oh. My. Goodness.

If I had to pick one, I'd go with Faith...Hello Kitty Machine? Oh yeah...

Bailey said...

They are all pretty funny, but if I had to pick I would go with Faith 'Free Motion" Jones.

Kylie Davenport said...

I love Faith "Free Motion" Jones just because of her awesome sewing machine! Love the color and context it's used it.

Terrie said...

Well, Gotta love you although the neclace sort of softens .....maybe should have stuck some pins in it :)......my three year old would be horrified !!!!
I think Faith would be a fave cause.....well....you just gotta love that machine :)!!!
and Katy's facial expression....seriously hilariouse !!!

Life In A Pink Bunny Suit said...

Has to be Queen Quilta...love that picture of you...totally fun!
Toni

ME said...

I love all the pictures and can't wait to see what you all come up with!!!!

JenJohnson said...

bahaha!! this is hilarious and awesome!! i love sewja boi and the queen quilta haha and seam busta!! omg i seriously cant pick they are all hilarious!

Sonia B said...

Oh my, that is one rough looking crowd. I'm especially afraid of all those packing rotary blades. You're looking pretty "mean" there Queen Quilta.

Debra Lee said...

Scrappuchino

New Salem Homestead said...

It looks like ya'll are having so much fun! I do have to know one thing..Is that tattoo real, Amy "Stitch Ripa" Friend?

Sandy said...

Sewja Boi is sew clever! Of course I LOL'd at Queen Quilta...Scrappucino is wild also! Look forward to see what cha all are gonna do.

Laura V said...

I love queen quilta and faith free motion Jones! Both are awesome!

Hi! My name is erica. Would you be my friend? said...

I think you and Shannon tie for the best pic. You look like you're saying "bring it on." :D But I think Ryan takes the cake with Sewjaboi! :D That had to have been tons of fun to do. :)

Patty said...

That's a very cute article. My favorite is Q-Diddy.

mennikelly said...

I think Faith's is my favorite because I know it is a Hello Kitty machine but John's mask is a close second for me.

Sallie said...

Faith "FREE MOTION" Jones because she doesn't look at vicious as the others and I like the Hello Kitty sewing machine!

SoSarahSews said...

HAHAHAHA!
Ok, best pic is Faith's with the sewing machine like a boombox.
Best name is Ryan "SEWJA BOI" Walsh.

Can't wait to see what you all have in store. You crack me up! Queen Quilta!

Mary Grace McNamara said...

John Adams and Ryan Walsh were pretty cool, but I like that Rachel dudette the BEST! Queen Quilta! It's YOU! So YOU! I have to wonder if your kids would find it a bit disturbing to see you like that though! Such fun quilters have!

MGM

Threads by Terry said...

I like John Adams and I love your too!!! What a fun thing to do..

Threads by Terry said...

I like John Adams and I love your too!!! What a fun thing to do..

Alecia said...

I think Jeni's scissor necklace takes the cke! You're pretty awesome, too!

Katie said...

My fav picture has to be either Faith
Free Motion Jones or Katy Stash Slasher Jones. Just because they made me lol a little bit.

Although, I did love the description for Jeni Seam Busta Baker - with her killa bunny ;)

Laura said...

I love them all!

Angie said...

Ryan Walsh as Sewja Boi cracked me up!

bethanndodd said...

Faith Free Motion Jones and yours, of course ;) Sounds like a lot of fun. Looking forward to the posts.
Smiles~Beth

Lisa said...

Amy Stitch-rippa's is my favorite! The reason that I picked her picture is because I can relate. LOL && I like her Tattoo! :)

bee said...

too funny! ya'll are gonna have too much fun. I think 'Free Motion' Jones' pix is awesome. :)

Dora, the Quilter said...

Wellllll, I'd have to say Lee Heinrichs or "Sewja Boi"--because their blogs are the only two I'm familiar with--but I'm about to become a lot more knowledgeable about the others. How fun and creative!

Samantha said...

Uhmm... how do I even choose a favorite?? You all looks so gangsta, yo!

I am gonna say Q-Diddy, just cuz the bandana made me laugh.

scottylover said...

OMG! How FUN! I love your picture, but I do think the best one is Maureen's. She just has that "Don't MESS with me" look! :)

Thanks for the giggles!
Sandy A

Allison C said...

I like Ryan's picture the best.

eholst said...

Definitely Faith's. She looks like she's trying so hard to be gangsta and not smile at the same time :) I'm also fairly certain she's holding a "Hello Kitty" sewing machine which makes it even more funny/ironic!

luvinthemommyhood said...

mad gangsta slang skills brah! can't wait to hang with ya! best. gang. evah!

Tamie said...

I love Faith's aqua machine and Jeni's box of fabrics but you seem to have a handful of cool fabrics too.

Ally said...

Wow! These are awesome! I think my favs are Queen Quilta, Stash Slasher, and Seam Busta :)

CaroleM said...

Ha! That's pretty funny. I think "Feed Dog" is an awesome name. Looks like you all had fun!

Mary on Lake Pulaski said...

You definitely look the most authentic Rachel (in a good way)!!

Ella said...

I think I'm going to have to go with Faith's, as the Hello Kitty sewing machine seems to warrant additional street cred.

Flo @ Butterfly Quilting said...

Has to be Queen Quilta! So much fun!!

liberal sprinkles said...

Rachel, you're pretty scary! I like Amy's "Stitch Rippa" name though - I can identify with that!

Grace

Becky said...

They are all great, but I've gotta vote for Faith "FREE MOTION" Jones! Love that green machine.

webmailaddress2 said...

Hilarious! They're all my favorite!

tawny_tawny said...

I like Ryan's the best, strictly because of his use of finger tattoos. So gangsta.

Ramanda said...

"SEWJA BOI" fo shizzle! He will cut you! Funny stuff, right there!

Gunilla said...

Sukie phat eights!! She looks as if she is up to bad things with thatcan in her hand... Great fun!!!

lori said...

Sooo funny and clever! It's all the pictures and all the names together that make it so entertaining as you scroll through each one. Home run!

ritainalaska said...

i'm a great fat quarterly fan, and it's quite a gang of hard hitters that going to give us what for! my favs: you, seam busta, and maureen mc hemmer because i follow you both and like your blogging.

Michelle said...

How can I pick a favourite? All great and clever names and fun pics! Have to say loved the Q-Diddy and Sewja Boi!

Sonja said...

Q-Diddy!!
Haha, that´s too funny!

Jessica Christensen said...

LOL! I love SEWJA BOI, because it's such a clever play on words.

The Queen Bee said...

Faith, for sure. Hefting her machine like that...not to mention the necklace.

Pam

dortha said...

I think I like Q-Diddy and SewJ-Boi> Your picture is good also.

Dana Gaffney said...

It's a toss up between you and Faith, I love the poses and the hard looks, but then your necklace and her turquoise sewing machine set just the right mood. Epic and fun.

Sandy said...

So funny! I love Lee "THE FEED DOGG" Heinrich! I can't wait for this series to start. Looks like fun!=)

Josie McRazie said...

hahahahahaha I LOVE all the names!! The pics it is a toss up between yours and Faith's!! (But who am I kidding I love all of them!!) Y'all had way to much fun with this one!! LOL

Kara @myothercarisacrane said...

Oh em gee, SEWJA BOI almost made me pee my pants!!! :)

Michele said...

Their all so great and it hard to say which one is my favorite, but i do love yours and Katy " Stash Slasher" Jones. Looking forward to all the fun projects.

Shirley Tener said...

I love MC Hemmer.. its to funny seeing her sweet demure like this... but yours is believeable..LOL..

Maggie said...

I am loving them all, hilarious! I have to say Sewjaboi is my fave, too funny!

Tieing A Knot said...

Faith "Free Motion" Jones for sure. She is armed and ready for the challenge with a sparkle of mischief I'm sure behind those 'Foster Grants'!!!

Lex said...

They are all great! But my favorite is Jeni from In Color Order, because I'm used to seeing her in her cute handmade tunics and her bunny george. Man, george in a do-rag with chains would have been hilarious

Linda said...

Shannon Scrappucino Cook! Anyone who runs on coffee is definitely a winner in my book.
lindapawlak@verizon.net

Denise in PA said...

These photos are hysterical - I love it! I'll have to pick yours - and not because I'm commenting on YOUR blog - but because I love the expression on your face! I'm also picking Jeni because she's so dang cute and trying to look "bad"! LOLOL!

Carolyn S. said...

Oh, this is too fun. I got to say, I'm liking Lee "THE FEED DOGG" Heinrich for her badass attitude! ;)

pinkquilter said...

OMG You have made my day! They are wonderful! ya'll had way too much fun getting ready for those shots! I love them all but I have to say your is the best I am faithful to you! But you do look the best with thost fat quarters in one hand, your look, its way too great!!! I lost my composure! Everyone was what's wrong what's wrong!!! I was laughing so hard!!! Yall are the best! Love ya'll all!

Barbara McD said...

The picture of Faith "Free Motion" Jones is hysterical - holding her Hello Kitty sewing machine like a boom box!! TOO FUNNY!!!

Thanks for the giveaway!!

Mimi said...

This is such an awesome and cool idea!!! OMG!! I love them all. The names are fabulous too! My favorite is Amy's "Stitch Rippa"!!

Melissa said...

Those are so AWESOME! I like them all, but your fabric flowers are my favorite! So fun!

suz said...

I haven't laughed this hard in ages! I don't think I could pick one or two, but I do have to say my impression of you has dramatically changed! :0)
John Adams' photo cracked me up as well. Sewja Boi wins it with the "tats" on his hands, though!

Becky G said...

What a riot! I was caught completely off guard, and laughed my head off. This will be a fun ride. Favorites are hard to pick, but Faith's boom-machine & Sewja Boi's tats cracked me up... And your photo coming first & so outta de box is fantabulous. Can't wait. Glad you're doing this & clued us in.

CathyK said...

Holy Smokes!!!!! This is one gang I would NOT want to see in "da hood"!!!! I sure needed a laugh this morning and I sure got it!!! EPIC!!! While I enjoyed them all, my favorites were the Queen Quilta and the Stash Slasher!!!! I know I am going to go back to this several times when I need a chuckle!!! :)

Margaret said...

Hilarious! I love them all, but Faith "Free Motion" Jones with her "boom box" and spray adhesive got the biggest laugh from me.

Carrie P. said...

Everyone is so creative and I just love all the nick names. Cracks me up.
It really is hard to pick but I choose Amy Stitch Rippa. I think the way she is showing off her tools is cool and she looks so tough with her tattoo and gold necklace. lol

terrieannie said...

Haha, what a tough choice! I've narrowed it down to Faith "free motion" Jones and Shannon "Scrappucino" Cook. Hmm, gonna go with Faith and her boom box Hello Kitty machine. But they're all AWEsome gangsta's!!

Cecilia said...

I like John Q Diddy Adams. They are all "tough" though. :-)

Nancy said...

You all are awesome. Love it, I think my vote goes with Katy Stash Slasher. She makes me chuckle evertime I look at that pic. Can't wait to see what is coming. Thanks for posting.

cpup40 said...

They are all awesome. But I have to go with Faith "Free Motion" Jones - totally brings back memories of the Fresh Prince and what I imagine Will Smith would be doing if he went from rapping to quilting.

Missie of Hallbrook Designs said...

Lol...too Funny! Scrappacino and Quilta Queen are my faves...just good names, that's all!! Have fun with it!

safieh said...

Stash Slasher was pretty legit. They are all hilarious!

slfranks4 said...

I have to admit that every single one of you had me giggling. But I totally lost it at Ryan "SEWJA BOI" Walsh. This is hilarious and brilliant. Ya'll are awesome!

DonnaP said...

Scrappucino and Stash Slasher are my faves but all of them are too funny! Can you imagine the looks on the quilting ladies from the 1800's? Now THAT would be priceless!

amidthismoment said...

I love the picture of Faith "FREE MOTION" Jones, and I love the name of Amy "STITCH RIPPA" Friend.

-Bobbi

Shauna said...

I have two favorites; Faith "Free Motion" Jones for the way she's rockin' that machine on her shoulder - like an old school gettoblaster (spell??), and Ryan "Sewja Boi" Walsh for his knuckle "tatts". This is so awesome I can't wait for June 4th!!

Stephanie Zito said...

Hehehe! I LOVE it! You all rock! Hard to pick a fave but I gonna have to say you "Queen Quilta" Rachel! I just adore your necklace!

Amy said...

My fav is Queen Quilta because you look tough and mean!!

Marisa said...

So fun! Queen Quilta and Scrappucinno!

spike9908 said...

I thought they all rocked! However, "Sewja Boi" hooked me when he stated that Burnt Orange was his thing! Being a Longhorn from Texas I had to vote for him...Go Horns!

Melamoo said...

Oh.My.Stars. I laughed so hard, I peed my pants. Really. Anyway . . . You are my fave southern sis but I have to say my heart skipped a beat when I saw SEWJABOI's awesomeness. There's just somethin' 'bout a man & a (sewing)machine. It was a toss-up between him & Q-Diddy, but the burnt orange won this Tennessee girl's heart!

Fran said...

Queen Quilta is my fave but you all look great. Such a clever & fun idea & so well done - it looks like the photo shoots were lots of fun too.

Kate said...

Stich Rippa for sure. Those seam rippers will be in my dreams/nightmares!

Dedra C said...

i really like Faith "FREE MOTION" Jones

i want to pack around my sewing machine and spray adhesive. i could rule my place!

Ashley said...

Love Katy's

Amy said...

Katy "Stash Slasher" Jones... the hat, the tats, the dis and dat! Though all ya'll really rock! I'm looking forward to June 4th. Have fun with it!

jen said...

Queen Quilta, of course !

Michelle said...

YOUR pic is my fave. I LOL'd when I saw it as the first one listed! :D Very cute!

Meredith said...

Those are all great and many of the blogs I already follow! I like yours the best. :) I can't wait to see all of the tutorials!

Carla said...

Lee gets my vote! You all look the part, for sure!!

Rita said...

my fav is 'free motion.' why? who else do you know that can balance a sewing machine on her shoulder like that??? and those biceps -- to die for!!

Kelsey said...

Love Faith "free motion" Jones! But they're all hilarious!!

LT said...

Faith was just... I can't even find the words to describe how impressed I am.

Bobbie said...

I can't choose just one so I'll tell ya my fav bits: love Queen Quilta's chain and the fact that she's ready to blend collections at the drop of a pin, McHemmer's spool chain rocks! Free Motion's fierce Hello Kitty machine and spray adhesive, luv Stitch Rippa's tat, still laughing about Stitch slappa's nine patch in the glove box, Seam busta's scissor chain and killa rabbit- my oh my this is gonna be fun! Me and my posse are workin' to form our gang's symbols this weekend!

Christine M said...

They are all great photos. I like Faith 'Free Motion' Jones with carrying her sewing machine like a boom box!

Leah said...

That gang looks pretty tough. Seam Busta and Stitch Slappa, aka Sew Hype, scare me with those open rotary cutters!

qltmom9 said...

Jeni ranks high.

Beth said...

I'll choose Faith's, for the sewing machine love.

It looks like you are all having fun, and I'm sure this is going to be a great group. I signed up for the newsletter & will be following along.

I hope I can express this in the right way, so you'll know I'm not reflexively critical or trying to be mean. I am wondering whether anyone else feels uncomfortable with the light-hearted depiction of gang symbols, gang attitude, etc. Coming from a family in which we have several members of law enforcement, and growing up in Southern California where I saw how gangs can devastate neighborhoods and lives, I was bothered by it. "Knowing" your gang--via the internet and quilting world--I have absolute faith that your intentions are good and you're just having fun. But I am really uncomfortable with anything that minimizes how violent and destructive gangs are.

This isn't an issue with me on a day-to-day basis, not something I rant about or even think about much. But when I saw your photos & bios the other day, it bothered me. And when I read your post, I felt like I should say something, but wanted to wait a day or two to be sure I could write it without sounding like I was angry or judging you all, because I'm not. Just tossing out a point of view you might not have considered.

with warm regards,
Beth

Alissia said...

They are all so great! I think my faves are Sewjaboi, Seam Busta and Free Motions...I mean, she has a *sewing machine* on her *shoulder* like a boombox! That's awesome! :)

Marcia W. said...

Ryan "Sewja Boi" Walsh stands out among a field of standouts!

Sarah said...

Why Queen Quilta is my FAVE, of course!!! LOL You guys crack me up. What a great way to start my day...giggles and good coffee!

pat said...

What creative 'gang" names!! Love Queen Quilta!

Deb said...

I think I'd pick Jeni Seam Busta Baker...mainly because she's holding a whole buncha fabric. Me like fabric!
