Make a Quilted Throw Pillow for Your Valentine

I’ve been having fun with the Valentine theme this month, as I suppose you are already aware if you’ve been following the projects available on the blog! I adore red and pink, cupids and hearts, chocolate candies and pretty, heart-shaped sprinkles. I also love quilting! I thought a quilted throw pillow would be another wonderful idea for Valentine’s Day. You can make one as a gift for your sweetie, or just keep it and enjoy it for yourself. This pillow may be displayed only in February if you wish – but it would also be a fabulous home décor item throughout the year.

There is another reason I want to make this particular pattern: Did you know that according to the British Heart Foundation, February is Heart Month? Heart disease kills far too many people, and it’s often preventable.

Whether you choose to give yours to a sweetheart or to keep it as a reminder of Heart Month, I hope you find making it a fulfilling endeavor. Let’s get started, shall we?

This pattern is for a heart quilt block that you can sew on the front of a pillow. It’s lovely, and it’s a relatively simple pattern to make – so you can still do this in time for Valentine’s Day. To do this project, you will need:

•three fabrics of your choice, which we’ll refer to as Fabric 1, Fabric 2, and Fabric 3

•cutting mat (I use a combination cutting mat and ironing board to streamline the entire process)

•iron

•fabric scissors

•rotary cutter

•quilting thread

Step One: Cut the three fabrics – these are the specifications for a 30cm block:

•Fabric 1: two rectangles of 8.9cm by 17cm each

•Fabric 2: three rectangles of 8.9cm by 17cm each

•Fabric 2: four squares of 8.9cm each

•Fabric 2: four squares of 3.8cm each

•Fabric 2: one square of 10cm

•Fabric 3: one rectangle of 8.9cm by 17cm

•Fabric 3: six squares of 8.9cm

•Fabric 3: one square of

    She uses phrases one would associate with joy, such as: “all of the beautiful sisters giggled and danced”(line 30-1).
