Thanks everyone for the kind words. I am hoping to get a fancy rod to hang mama on, the small dowel was just temporary & the only thing I had at the time Smiley I have really enjoyed sewing & looking up & seeing mama!!

This is not only my very first craft challenge but also the first time I have posted pictures...so hopefully I can do this Smiley

As soon as I saw this challenge, I knew I had to enter. My daughter & I have loved Cooking Mama forever and we are super excited for Crafting Mama!

For this challenge I decided to make a wall quilt for my sewing/crafting room. My daughter & I crack up every time we see the Cooking Mama with the fire in her eyes, so I decided I had to do something with that image. I started with a pixelated chart (thanks to my brother, who is wonderful!).



I bought pink, brown, green, red & tan fat 1/8 rolls from Joann's, then starting cutting them into 1 1/2 inch squares.  By eyeing the chart & counting squares, I started assembling Mama's head.



I worked one row at a time. One square to another until I had a complete row. Then when all the rows were done, I sewed each row together to make a very cute wall quilt modeled by my lovely daughter!


Here is a closeup of the corner tag that I stitched up.  


Finally, Mama is at home, watching over me when I sew & warning all those who might bug me to back off! Smiley


Thanks for looking...this has been a lot of fun!! I think I might now have the challenge bug!

That is just stunning! Your patience is amazing!

Where did you pick it up in Korea? My husband is heading over soon to visit his family....and maybe I can convince him to do a little shopping Wink
