Be Warm

this is my Be Warm block before the "be warm" lettering is added. also missing is a round button for scarf. a carrot button for nose. beads for eyes. & beads for each point of the snowflakes. these things are sewn on after the quilt has been assembled.i wanted to use only yellow & black fabrics. but slowly purple, blue, & green kept creeping in. the lettering was going to be olive. then black. now i've decided on dark brown. so i'll be keeping the backgrounds as light as possible. mostly yellows, golds, & green. & any colors that suit the next block will be used.
