I have been drooling over this pattern for quite a while. I am so very happy with the results! For some reason that I don't understand, the green/teal comes up quite blue in the photos. This is the larger size, for a crib.

Another two dozen. This time it is bars of soap. I tried to tint half the batch with Wilton's powder, but it clumped in odd ways.

Block 3 of the Beatitudes by Val Laird.
You are blessed...when you're kind and merciful.

Here is block 2 along with the first. I'll keep re-showing block one to keep the context. Applique is new to me and I'm building confidence with the technique.
 You are blessed...when you're at the end of your rope.

I am really enjoying this year's Block-Of-The-Month pattern from Val Laird Designs. She is generously designing the blocks based on the Beatitudes. This is block 1.
