Be Attitudes Block 11

Although I am not so crazy about some of my fabric choices (like the ear of corn sort of blends into the background) I still like this block alot.

Have you noticed how all the people have rosy cheeks? Many years ago I got a free sample of an expensive cosmetic blush. It was too dark, too glittery and too oily for me to use on my own face, but has worked out perfectly whenever an appliqued person needs some rosy cheeks.
As for that perfect button hole stitch, it is being done by my Bernina sewing machine. If I did it by hand, not only would it be irregular but I would still be on the first block.

Your applique stitches are excellent! All of the blocks are adorable.

I haven't commented every time, but I love all of your "BE" blocks... each one cuter than the last.. ;)

I have a Bernina and took a machine applique class after I got it - when we lived in GA... but that's been forever ago and I have no idea where all my notes are...the only thing I remember is they recommended a different weight tread for top and different for bobbin - but what I don't know?

Maybe you should consider a tutorial - talking about what products you use and like... ect. :) What do you think? I'd take your little class!

Love from Texas! ~bonnie

So the secret is out. And here I thought you did that all by hand :) Either way, I really love them.
