  • Personal Narrative: Make A Quilted Throw Pillow

    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. With adequate exercise, a heart-healthy diet, and regular check-ups, we might deter the onset of this devastating condition. If we keep our stress levels to a minimum, avoid drinking excessive amounts of alcohol, and either quit smoking or never start, we have an even better chance of preventing cardiovascular issues. I think that a quilted throw pillow with a heart theme is the perfect project for this month. 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…
