Put A Stamp On It

I am so excited to be a part of Madame Samm's blog hop 'Put A Stamp On It'!  This lady is the queen of quilting blog hops.  Literally.The.Queen.   She totally rocks.

Each blog hop has a cheerleader and this one is Thearica from Pigtales and Quilts.  She is just the best for organizing us for this hop.

I participated in a hop a while ago, then was waiting patiently to join in again.... and here we go.

This is my little stamp.   We had to have a theme.  Well that was a no brainer.   Polka dots and lots of 'em!  Notice the flowers, leaves and background all have polka dots...sigh, so heavenly=)


Get this, I even did trapunto on the flower design!  I pulled out all the stops on this one.   The flowers are actually not one piece of fabric, but several pieces fussy cut and then the leaves are all different polka dot fabrics I have.   Yes, I have alot, but not nearly enough!  I used my super fancy thread to do some fun thread painting on the flowers.

My country is Canada, so I added that, and the number 26?   I was born on the 26th and just love that number to bits!



Here are the fellow blog hoppers who are participating today.  Please go check out their adorable stamps and be sure to leave a comment=)












This was super fun.   Thanks Madame Samm for making quilting extra exciting!
