It's All About Me! Blog Hop

It's all about ME! Cause that's the way Me likes it! Lol. (I sound like that commercial for Me TV, lol)

I am so glad Madame Samm asked Amy Bradley to design us a cute little applique for this blog hop. I love applique and have made a few of Amy's patterns too, so I knew I would love making this little quilt. A big thanks to our cheerleader Marlene.

I thought the humor of this little quilt was so cute. The striped fabrics are cut on the bias and the dual meaning made me laugh.
Isn't she cute? Well I am a little biased you know.

I changed the hair a little bit and on the wrist pincushion I sewed silver -colored beads for the pins.

I added button earrings and a flower brooch with a button center.  I added a  little rouge on her cheeks and I changed the mouth a bit too.

I hand blanket stitched the letters and fused them on a bit tipsy.

I hand stitched these letters on by hand with a back stitch.  This fabric looks like barbed wire to me.
