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!

Haha....line of the day.  I love it!
I love your quilt too!  I almost did a quilt, but I don't think mine would have turned out half as neat as yours did!  Look at how all those corners line up perfectly!

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!!

Yay! Quilt! If I had a crafting room, I would want that as my main decoration. This looks amazing!

I found these 4x5 plastic picture protectors and I want to fill them up with YOUR art. Let's swap.
