Be Attitudes

Today I'll be putting the binding on the Be Attitudes Quilt for the Holy Trinity Lutheran Youth Group Auction. (Above is a picture of the quilt top that I had taken before). I love this little quilt with words on each of it's twelve blocks. I knew as soon as I saw Nancy Halverson's Be Attitudes book that I'd make this quilt for the auction.

Here are some of the blocks that I snapped pictures of yesterday as I completed the quilting on them.
I'm not a very experienced machine quilter, so this has been some good practice for me, trying different motifs on each block.

The cryptic little messages on each block makes it very appropriate for the Youth Group auction.

The auction is to raise funds for our kids' trip to the Lutheran Youth Gathering this summer in New Orleans. Along with all the fun stuff that they'll do, the trip will also include some service work in the New Orleans community.

Enjoy the day!

I really love how you quilted this! I made one but I haven't quilted it yet. I still have it hanging over the banister until I get some ideas. Thank you for the inspiration.
