DIY Valentine Heart Pocket Classroom Quilt
6th Grade Valentine's Craft - Great!
Used this for a 6th Grade Valentine's Craft activity. It was a hit! It took the full hour we were allotted, and the kids really enjoyed it. Looked cute for a decoration during February, then the kids took home their individual quilt squares.

Awesome class craft!
I purchased this quilt to do as a Valentine craft in my child's 1st grade class. It comes with 24 squares. My child's class has 20 students. Each child and the teacher wrote their name and decorated a heart. We had 3 extra hearts. I had the teacher's monogram and this year's date embroidered on one heart. For the 2 remaining hearts, I took a picture of all of the students and a photo of just the teacher. I purchased fabric transfer sheets (purchased at Staples) and printed the photos on those sheets. I then ironed the photos on the hearts. It was easy! It took the children about 30 minutes to do their heart. Each child used plain markers and sat in their seats. I showed them a picture of what it would look like completed and they were excited. I took it home to assemble it. It took me about 2 hrs. It does not come with directions on how to tie it together (I figured it out with no problem). I'm just a perfectionist! On Valentines Day I presented it to the teacher. The kids were very proud of the quilt and had a blast finding their heart and looking at everyone else's. She wants to keep it up the rest of the year. The ribbons can be untied to disassemble if the teacher wants to send each child's heart with them.
RECOMMENDATION: Purchase a mini round curtain rod to hang it from. It comes with enough extra ribbons that you can use to attach it to the rod.

It was difficult to get the patches together to make the quilt.

great class project for 2nd grade
Classroom Moms used this as a Valentines Day project for 2nd grade. Each child took a square to decorate at home for the teacher. It came together nicely. And for Moms without quilting/sewing skills, it was easy to tie the squares together to make the quilt.

I got this for a baby shower. I wanted people to leave messages to the baby, and then hag it on her wall. I think it was everything I could have wanted. I also got the fabric markers to go along with it.

Fun Class Project
There were 24 kids in my daughter's 4th grade class and there was 24 quilt squares with heart pockets to decorate. I asked the kids to put their name on it and decorate/draw things which represents them, example: my daughter loves huskies, so she drew a face of a husky in the center of the heart and put more hearts on the outside. Their creative was awesome. I had a couple other parent volunteers help tie the squares together. The kids decoration was done with fabric markers in about 20 minutes and it took another 30 minutes to assemble. We tried glitter glue on the sample square my daughter did, but took too long to dry so did not have the class use.
