heart shape cushion
I'm proud to say that I've just finished this cushion finally. I started making it years ago and put it aside unfinished. The top was finished and all I had to do was to turn it into a cushion. Now I want to explain how I make such a cushion.
1- Cut 16 squares in different colors you like. Each square is 4x4 inches.
2 - Paper piecing is used for heart pattern. I draw my own shape; you can do as well or find a ready-made one. When you have completed your paper pieced heart, score through the stitching with a pin and remove the paper.
3- Heart shapes are appliqued to each square. Applique is done by hand. When appliquing is finished, sew the squares by machine and it is ready for quilting.
4 - I've quilted each heart in place and outline stitched using big stitch quilting.
5- Prepare the back cover and sew it by machine. Here is a cute, lovely cushion. It is perfect for home decoration.
