It's All About--Me!

Last December it was my turn to suggest a theme for the local challenge group that I belong to and I finally decided on a letter or letters of the alphabet used as some kind of design element. I had what I thought was a good idea at that point but by the time the holidays were over and I actually sat down to do some sketching, something entirely different leaped into my mind. I had been having some discussions with friends and with myself about identity and egos and so I started playing with a "Me" concept and here is what finally came together:
Once I had gotten the idea I had to come up with a way to translate it into fabric before the March deadline, and after rejecting fusing and hand applique, I decided to start with the E's and see if I could piece them.  When they seemed to work, I set about putting the top section together. And then, in case you missed it, there's the tiny addition:
I, of course, had to call it "It's All About Me."

And if you're still with ME, thanks for the company!

I like this a lot. The "M"s in various poses and perspectives look rather imposing, dominant, and proud; while the "E"s appear to be subordinate, perhaps defeated, and scattered in disarray. This is a very dynamic piece - different for you, but one of my favorites.

This is truly wonderful. As a lover of typography, this is such a great example. Bravo!
