Happy (Zombie) Mail

Monica Solorio-Snow (aka the Happy Zombie) has probably the funniest quilting blog I’ve ever read.  Seriously, if you don’t believe me, read this.  She is also the genius behind the Ron Swanson Quilt (I love Parks and Recreation but we are so far behind in New Zealand, please don’t tell me anything that has happened in, oh, about the last 2 years). 
 
Hello Happy Zombie 
 
A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to win a bright and funky Happy Zombie badge (or as Americans inexplicably like to say, button) from Monica in a giveaway. It arrived recently and is now one well travelled little badge/button.  I love it, and that business card cracks me up.
 
Happy Zombie badge and happy little pouch 

This badge/button is now living on my first ever zipper pouch, which hangs out in my sewing room and holds my precious Good Folks scraps.  It feels right to keep things I have received through online quilty connections together.

So, whose face would you put on a quilt?

Robert Downey jr. Maybe. Or! David Tennant. Because he is probably my favorite doctor. :) the Ron Swanson quilt was pure genius, though. Love your button (badge)!

Have just started watching P&R and LOVE Ron Swanson! Way behind in Scotland too, but I think that's because I have a pathological fear of missing an episode of something and then totally losing the thread. All my favourite series have been on DVD :D
I'd put V from V for Vendetta on a quilt - awesome graphic!

Obviously I love doing the Swanson quilt but a close second might be a Jack Bauer quilt...I loved 24!

Very nice! Congrats!

I have been tempted to make the Ron Swanson quilt myself, but I don't know who else I would want to immortalize in a quilt! I love Monica's blog, and as soon as you mentioned that she was funny I thought of that same post. So funny.

Oh you lucky duck!! I LOVE Monica!! She is my hero. Cracks me up every time! Great job on your pouch! :) As far as who's face I would put on a quilt...Gerard Butler...hands down...he is gorgeous from head to toe! :)
