Jail Break

I want to finish the M&M quilt top. So I added a border of yellow and then,

I added the black border ...

and that's when everything went wrong. The party came to a halt! They were suddenly surrounded by police officers closing the area with their yellow tape. "Nobody moves! Hands up!"

"You are under arrest for having too much fun!"

I'm like what???? This cannot be!! I have to do something to help them, I mean, yes they are party "nuts" but who doesn't love the M&M clan? They can't be just thrown into jail!!

"Think, Chantal, think. You have to do something." I called Rebel on my eye-Phone.

"Rebel, I need your help. Come quick!" And then, she was by my side and came up with a plan. "We have to break the yellow tape to set them free", she said.

"Here's how we'll do it. It won't be easy but we can do this."

So I started making some Pinwheels. (Can't afford a real helicopter!)

and I added them to the border ...

nonchalantly, like they belong there.  Slowly I got closer to the M&M gang.

When no one was looking, I slipped them their getaway disguises. They have to dress up at the very last minute to avoid suspicion.

(I did the best I could with the little bit of time I had to gather their costumes.)

Unfortunately, our plan came up short.

Not one to give up easily, Rebel tried again.

This time it worked. The tape broke and ...

 the M&M hastily spilled out.

It didn't took long for the cops to take us in pursuit.

Rebel had a non-marked transportation waiting for them.
I mean, she had a transport for them.  (Com'on! There's no way they could all fit inside General Lee!)

The important thing is that they got away

... to bash a party near you.


Phew! RSC2016 is a top.

  12. Hilarious and clever - both your narrative and the quilt. But why am I craving chocolate now?

  16. Woohoo! I don't know who's having more fun - you or your M&M's!
