As I walked through the grocery store and saw Valentine’s Day all around me, I decided to get started on some DIY Valentine stuff for the grandchildren.
I thought a simple, one hexagon block wall hanging would be cute.
I drew a picture of my grandson and me on muslin.
Then I drew hair and clothes on different fabric pieces.
I used Steam-a-Seam 2 Lite to adhere the drawings onto some of the memo fabric my brother sent me.
Rather than machine quilt, I have chosen to hand quilt this small block.
The rotating cutting mat was ideal for this project.
I had a piece of the Solar System fabric I used for his quilt, so I used it for his shirt.
He is a walking information station on the Solar System.
Since I love birds, I chose some of the last remaining pieces of my bird fabric.
This block is not finished yet. I need to complete the quilting and add some buttons or some type of embellishments. Not too many, though.
I have already drawn my granddaughter and myself.
I hope to get to it tomorrow after I run some errands and get a haircut.
Only 40 more days until Valentine’s Day!
