Blocks for Valentine's
The piecing of the Valentine blocks went quickly today!
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.
I love the soft colors.
Looking forward to adding some silk ribbon embroidery as well as other embroidery to these blocks!
And I suspect there will be a few little birds added as well!
This gives an idea of how the blocks will go together!
