Blocks for Valentine's

Block 1
The piecing of the Valentine blocks went quickly today!

Block 2
The only thing I'll change for using the template in the future is to allow a larger seam allowance around the outside ~ another 1/2" at least, as I like a little extra room in case the stitching and embellishment pulls the block in.

Block 3
I love the soft colors.

Block 4
Looking forward to adding some silk ribbon embroidery as well as other embroidery to these blocks!

Block 5
And I suspect there will be a few little birds added as well!

Valentine Bell Pull
This gives an idea of how the blocks will go together!

Those birds and their blocks are so very lovely. It's a beautiful beginning. So glad I get to be here for the show!

I really like the way you show how to make your blocks. I love to do foundation piecing. I love the beautiful bird block. Were these from material or did you print the bird pictures yourself.
I have a feeling, I maybe drawing out my own blocks for piecing from now on.
