It's All About Me

Today is my turn to show you  my piece It's All About Me by Amy Bradley. Thank you Amy for donating the pattern.



I would like to thank Madame Sam from Sew We Quilts for this great idea and a special thank you to Marlene from Stitching by the Lake for all her work organising this Hop.

This is my piece that I am sharing with you today:


I wasn't sure what I should do with her and planned on making another one but with being away on vacation  
I decided I would just make the one. I needed a cove for my serger since I don't use it often so thought this would be a good thing to keep the dust bunnies away.  There has been some beautiful pieces during this blog and I have enjoyed it immensely.

So now as I have been telling people it is time for a give away. Just leave a comment for a chance to win and I will have the draw when this blog is over.  I have enjoyed sharing with everyone and hope you will visit me again. Since now we are wishing for spring to come, at least I am I thought these nice spring fat quarters would make a great gift.


The colour's are a light spring green. It is hard to see how pretty they are.



Here is a list of  the ladies who are showing their pieces today.
