Be-Attitudes Quilt – Be Warm Block

I am so excited to have finished the next block of my Be-Attitudes Quilt. I don’t know if “Being Warm” is a real Be- attitude or not, but I do think that warm and fuzzy thoughts are a lot better than cold and prickly ones. So yes, this week’s “Be Warm” Block is a definite go for me😊

Isn’t it so cute?! I love his nose and rosey checks above the scarf. 🙂

Speaking of his scarf, I had a hard time deciding on the fabric choice. At first I thought there was too much red and so I auditioned a yellow motif.

My friends and I all agreed to stay with the red. That yellow just didn’t pop enough. Color is funny that way. Contrast, contract, contrast is key.

Can you spot some of my Mystery Quilt Along fabric peeking through?

Hee hee hee! I feel so sneaky:). It has been fun watching the others in this MQAL also adding their fabric in obvious or not so obvious places as well. It is like an I spy!

This block also has a bit of embroidery on it. The snowflakes were quick to stitch up with large stitches and embroidery floss.

I think they really add to the finished block. I always like a little more texture and finishing touches on a quilt.

I will be adding a button for the knot of his scarf and small beads to the tips of the snowflakes, but they will have wait until after the quilt is quilted. I don’t want any broken needles while quilting!

I really like how this quilt is coming along. I think my first two blocks look so SWEET next to each other.

It’s going to be a beauty! I have a friend who is a teacher and would like to display this in her classroom. I can’t think of a better future for this quilt:)❤️❤️

Thank you so much for dropping by today. It is a SWEET day for sure!

The “Be-Attitudes” – Be Loving

I get together with my good friend, Kathleen, every Wednesday and Quilt. Sometimes I choose the pattern, and sometimes she chooses. It was her turn to choose and she decided on a pattern that she has had on her want to make list for some time now. It is called Be Attitudes by Art to Heart. You can get the pattern on Amazon, or other online stores

There are twelve blocks and we hope to get a block done each time we meet. We should get it done by the end of the summer unless we take off for vacations and such.

We should have started with the Be Warm Snowman for January, but since it is so close to Valentines Day we decided on the Be Loving Block instead.

Isn’t it so cute?! I have chosen to make my quilt with my normal brights. But Kathleen is making hers with the more muted tones like in the picture.

Isn’t it fun to see the difference that color makes? They both are wonderful in their own way. This is going to be quite the adventure. I’m so glad we are doing it together.

I already feel loved as I look at these cute hearts with the little blanket stitch around them.

This is appliqué at its easiest since it is just backed with fusible web and ironed down and then stitched down. LOVE it!! I also love this darling little angel❤️

………………………….

I used embroidery thread for her eyes and barely colored her cheeks with crayon for a bit of rosiness.

It has been a LOVELY day around my house. In fact it has been a SWEET day:)❤️❤️.

Until next time,
