Benartex Be The Light Quilt

Benartex has a beautiful line of fabric, "Be the Light" by Kelly Rae Roberts, that I had the opportunity to sew with. I love it! The three ladies, "Be the Light- Angels Light Yellow" (12993-03), called my heart with the sweet faces, colorful dresses, and inspirational words surrounding them. 

The other designs in "Be the Light" have gorgeous butterflies and flowers, bright colors, and colorful stripes. 

It was easy to get creative with all that beauty and make a quilt full of hearts. "Love Me Tender" has plenty of love with all those hearts!

Love Me Tender
47" x 63"

Lots of pretty hearts!

I used my Crafter's Edge to cut the hearts...so easy to fussy cut them! 

Butterflies and flowers

Tonal Stripe Yellow (12997-33) made a perfect binding that looks sweet next to 
my lemons that are getting close to picking time.

I love the Nouveau Dark Turquoise (12995-84) and Nouveau Dark Rose (12995-19) in the quilt!

As always, I used my favorite iron on adhesive, HeatnBond  for the appliqued hearts.
Isn't that a cute little iron by Oliso! 

"Love Me Tender" is a free downloadable pattern you can find HERE.
