Happy Valentine's Day!

This month's Queen Bee for the Sew Sweet Bee wanted a heart block to make a Valentine quilt.   This is the block I made for her.  It was a super easy tutorial from Cluck Cluck Sew.
 Since today is Feline Friday, I had to share a picture of Oreo being super cute on my quilt.
I also have a hint for you today.  These charm lockets are super popular right now.  I have found the knock offs are cheaper then the name brand ones.  You can even buy charms at Hobby Lobby.  The one below is me (I still need to find a sewing machine charm).  I love cats, Route 66, penguins, flamingos, cupcakes, and the Cross stands for God.  
 I call this my teacher themed one.
 To keep the charms in place, just use some of the tiny glue dots.  It works great!  Such a simple solution to keep your charms from falling!
 My husband has bought both of these necklaces for me.
Saturday night we have a Valentine's Day banquet at church.  My husband is giving the message.
Have a great weekend!

Aren't the blocks from Cluck Cluck Sew easy to do? I make some wherever I have a fabric that I just love. Cute charms so they frames are open? I have something like that with little synthetic stones one for each child, and grandchild.

Looks like we both enjoy Allison Harris patterns. Your heart is very sweet Missy (both the real one and the fabric one, LOL)
A very cute idea for charm necklaces!
Oreo is adorable!

Really cute charms. I have a necklace from years and years ago where I have charms but they are exposed. I like the heart too! That is on my next block I am doing for the Splendid Sampler.
