This is the block that I did last year for our son's birthday. Picture of this year's blank block coming soon!
I just used Word on my computer to type giant numbers, and enlarge them to like 100 pt font or something. After printing them out - one number per 8.5 x 11 in paper, I then traced them with freezer paper, and attached the paper waxy side down on the right side of the fabric. Then, I turned the edges under, did a bit of applique, and there you go!
At the party, I asked all the guests to sign with a pigma pen.
I hope all of you in the US had a very nice long weekend, and that your Labor Day was nice. My Labor Day was certainly full of labor (rather than rest, as it was originally intended when it became a holiday in 1882). I spend some time sewing up goodie bags for the party, and offering painting advise to my husband - "You missed a spot!"
Is summer officially over now? If so, I'm sad it's gone.
