The Quilt Show Puzzle: A Sight For Sore Eyes
"Lillian" by Libby Williamson

Lillian is the centerpiece and one of the main inspirations for Libby's Wonky Sisters class. Wonky Sisters is a class that allows you to create an art piece that doesn't have to be spot-on and anatomically correct. It's all about accentuating the "quirks" that you want to bring out in your piece, enlarged eyebrows, mismatched eyes, different colored hair, and so on. Lillian herself is a really sassy and spunky girl who gets around and has been in a lot of "compromising" positions, like a police car in Central Park, the cockpit of a Southwest plane, and even a picnic with seagulls on the coast of the Pacific Ocean.
