Live Deliciously

This 20 x 36 wall hanging was inspired by my love of cupcakes. As soon as I saw the challenge, the pieces fell into place for me. I dug through my bin of fabric and found remnants of a quilt that a portion had already been repurposed into curtains for my son. I used that as my backdrop and pulled apart the layers to use that fabric as well to create my colorful cupcake liner. Then I cut and rolled old white t-shirts to create the layers of frosting. I sewed around the edges and tacked the remainder in place with "sprinkle" stitches. My two non-traditional items are the Hershey's sign, which I bought many years ago but never found the right place to display. The finishing touch for me is the fork, which I engraved to say "Live Deliciously." This shows the frosting texture a bit better. I create in Oshkosh, WI.
