Here are some details about my project:
Category Sewing
Type Home Decor
Style Classic, Romantic
Celtic Thistle on craftsy.com

What materials did you use? Cotton print for pillow front and back, natural linen for pillow front centre, felt for heart applique and ric-rac for heart trim.

What are you most proud of? The mitred corners, they were very difficult to match up exactly but they did in the end.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? The project is a lot simpler if a plain fabric is used for the background front fabric as there are no checks to match up in the mitre.

Hi Charlie, the instructions for the pillow were in an old quilting magazine. It isn't that hard to do though, basically it is a square with a border with mitred corners. The red felt heart, ric-rac trim and centre border were all appliqued. Hope that helps.
