heart shape cushion

By Hatun Comak → Monday, February 26, 2018

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  made this heart shape cushion.


Instructions

  •  Cut 16 squares in different colors you like. Each square is 4x4 inches.
  • 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, press with iron and remove the paper.
  • 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.
  • I've quilted each heart in place and outline stitched using big stitch quilting. 
  • Prepare the back cover and sew it by machine. Here is a cute, lovely cushion. It is perfect for home decoration.


Cushions are great for decoration. You can choose your favourite colors and start making your cushion.
