Be Attitudes is Done!

My first finish of the year is the Be Attitudes quilt top!  I've had requests for close up's of the finished blocks, so here they are. The eyes are all stitched, along with any other seed beads, but the other buttons are just sitting on the blocks.  I'll stitch them on after this is quilted.


Ok, I have a question for all of you.  Which cupcake 'topper' button do I use for this block?  The plain button or the strawberries?
plain button

strawberry buttons











Here is the finished quilt top.

The pattern shows several borders around this top.  I'm not going to add any borders for a couple of reasons.  One, I want this to be a wall quilt, and two, I don't have any of this fabric, other than the tiny scraps that came with these blocks.

For those that don't remember, I 'won' these blocks, already fused, back in October 2015 from Karen at K's Quilting Korner

I don't know when I'll get time to start hand quilting this.  These blocks have been my hand stitching project for several years now.  I guess I'll have to prepare something else for my hand stitching project.

Happy New Year!

  1. I think it will make a lovely wall quilt. I vote for the strawberries button for the cupcake. Will make for some good hand quilting while still cold.

  5. It's fabulous! It looks almost identical to mine (I also had the block kits).
    I added a small neutral border and bound in dark red.

  12. Wow! that was a real quickie, and will be lovely on the wall. I wondered about the fabric choice. Very nicely coordinated. I am wondering if I have enough coordinated fabric scraps to give it a try.
