It Is Time To Be Sweet On You

Joan at Moosestash Quilting had the perfect idea and challenge for February.
"Sweet on You" in the month of love gave us lots of ways to be creative!


Are you sweet on treats?
Are you sweet on stitching a special project?
Are you sweet on, well anything you love?

As an ambassador for Benartex, they sent me some beautiful Valentine fabric to sew with.
I am definitely "sweet" on "Be My Gnomie" fabric!

Love and Kisses
55" x 75"

 "Be My Gnomie" is full of "sweet" designs, that's for sure!

Benartex Chalk Texture Pink and Light Pink, and Superior Solids White went great with it.

I went with a simple wandering stitch for quilting and yes, I machine quilt all my bindings.
Hand stitching those bindings are way too much for these old hands!

This is another project using "Be My Gnomie" that I made.

Look who else has been sharing their "Sweet on You" creativity:

Thank you for stopping by!


  1. Love and Kisses and Be My Gnomie are as cute as buttons and bring a smile to my day.

  2. What fun projects!! I like to machine sew bindings too. ;-)

  3. I knew you'd make something beautiful, but you made TWO things that are beautiful. I can't decide which I like best, but I do like the shape of the hearts in the first one and the border in the second one. That's a great line of fabric. They are lucky to have you as an ambassador!

  4. Good morning Carol. These quilts are beautiful, and so cheery. This is a great fabric line, something that Benartex does well for sure.

  5. This is a great Love and Kisses quilt. Your designs for the x's and o's is a great modern take that I am totally sweet on. Great quilting too!!! The gnome quilt is the sweetest quilt, for sure!!!

  6. Two beautifully sweet quilts! The gnomes are wonderful.

  7. Beautiful projects! I love the hearts in the Love and Kisses quilt. You did a great job with that gnomie fabric!!!

  8. Both of your projects are just the sweetest!

  9. Those sweet Benartex fabrics would brighten anyone's day and you sure know how to design with them, to make them just "SING"! Love your "Love and Kisses" quilt as well as the "Gnomes"

  10. Both quilts are in the sweet variety. Love those hearts and Xs - not the run-of-the-usual and they have so much pizzazz. Totally sweet.

  11. Love both of these quilts. I love the hearts and Xs - the style you choose is really fun! The cgnomies in the churn dash border are fabulous too. You had very sweet projects with awesome fabric for this hop!

  12. These are both just adorable, Carol! Love that fabric line!

  13. Two adorable quilts. Those X's and hearts are so modern and fun.

  14. Really cute quilts. I love the little gnome one, but that x & o is so clever. Your fabric choices are just perfect and I love the appliqu├ęd x and o.

  15. Oh, so cute, Carol! Love your clever designs - I'm especially intrigued by the fun stamp-edge and woven ribbon effects in your borders on the 2nd quilt. I'm with you on the machine-binding! My fingers get tingly after about 10 minutes of hand-stitching.

  16. Love all your projects, but especially the Be My Gnomie. I got the panel but haven't had a chance to do anything with it yet.

  17. Love both your projects, but the heart quilt is my favorite. You gave a new look to a popular pattern. The fabric you used are beautiful!

  18. I love both projects but Love and Kisses has my heart.

  19. Both quilts are lovely!!!
    I too, totally bind my quilts with my machine!

  20. Really cute! I still stitch down the binding by hand; gives me something to do when I watch TV with my husband.

  21. Love the shapes of your x's and o's so cute! Both quilts are fantastic.
