socks on a rooster

i needed two pillow shams cuz the new quilt (yep - a new quilt for ME - more on that to follow) that i made for my bed isn't long enough to fold over my pillows... 
pillow shams should have a tight, tailored fit, right?!? 

not for me - i wanted my pillow shams to be loosey goosey... 

but not in a bad way
like socks on a rooster...

rolling the credits...

the paper-pieced rosebud pattern can be found here and was worth every penny...

and the quilting - well, the quilting is by Liz Bowman of Milan, Michigan and is totally way cool...

quilted back - garlands and thorny roses - awesomesauce

i dunno what i would do without her awesomeness...
yep, she's the icing on the cupcake!!!


and, seriously, a cupcake without icing is a muffin... 

not that a muffin is a bad thing... 

but it isn't a cupcake, now is it?!?
