"Be Attitudes" Update

I mentioned that we may be spending a few days at the local corp of engineer park. It is always very relaxing but it doesn't have internet connection and cell phone service can sometimes be iffy. So when we go,  I take books and magazines. If we are going to stay for several days, I will take my sewing machine also.

This time, we will only be there for 2 or 3 days. (Thursday evening to Sunday afternoon.) I have decided to do the applique on the "Be Attitudes" quilt by hand and take it to work on while I sit around the camp fire with friends. But, since I have never hand appliqued before, I decided to start on the first block while at home. (Sure don't won't to forget something I might need.) I have been working on it the past 2 evenings and have finished the snowman. The words are fused down and ready to be stitched.

Not perfect, but not a bad start.

My fingers are a little sore. I'm going to have to dig out a thimble. If I do this very often, I may have to get me a pretty new thimble like Karen got at the quilt show.

Happy snipping, stitching, and quilting!


  1. I have this book and want to make this quilt---someday. Your stitches are so nice and even!
    This will be such a cute quilt.

  2. Its just so lovely! I adore all Art to Heart designs

  3. The applique you are doing is harder on your fingers because you used a fusible - that is why your fingers are sore! I just do needle turn and I do love my new thimble :) Have fun at the park.

  4. Wow it looks wonderful! That is going to be so cute!

    I'm chuckling at Karen's comment, that she "just" does needle turn... isn't that the most difficult to master? LOL

  5. Hi Vivian, trying to do some blog catch up. Oh, I am loving the Be-Attittudes. I actually bought this after Christmas to do.

  6. I am now following your blog, so I can track the progress of your fabulous "Be Attitudes" quilt!
