Project

Hearts and Checks Pillow

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.

You Can Make This

Celtic Thistle made Hearts and Checks Pillow with:

  • Cotton print for pillow front and back
  • natural linen for pillow front centre
  • felt for heart applique and ric-rac for heart trim.

Q&A with Celtic Thistle

yurdreamwoman asked:
Hi, I just found this web site. I am wondering where the instructions are for these projects I save? I love this pillow! Help please, thank you. charlie:))
Celtic Thistle answered:
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.
