|Harry singing into his mic|
To add visual interest I chose this image of Harry. It is very different from the images of the other members. It feels more intimate.
|Embroidery in process|
After creating the pattern from the Sketch Guru image, & transferring the image to the fabric, I began embroidering Harry using DMC floss #922. Below shows the finished block. The mic came out a bit wonky, but I love how his face & hair came out.

|Harry's name just above Liam's|
|Harry's lyrics in What Makes You Beautiful|
Fiona chose this line because Harry flips his hair a lot & she thought it was ironic. (Love my kid!) I added the butterfly because Harry recently got a butterfly (more realistic, not this girly) tattoo on is abdomen.
With all of the embroidery complete, my mom started helping me on the construction of the quilt.
|Cutting the All-Star sneaker fabric|
To flank the larger top & bottom group blocks, Mom pieced strips of the various fabrics to create the blocks in all 4 corners.

Below is the quilt top laid out on my daughter's bed. Notice all the One Direction posters. (Mom did the colorful strip paint job on the walls last year.)

I'll post about the One Direction Quilt Project again when it is finished!
