Substitute Other Blocks for the Heart!
Simple patchwork is accented with a heart block in this lovely pillow. It’s a simple project that goes together quickly.
Plus, it will be great in any color theme. Play with goodies from your stash to make your own version.
The pattern calls for a pack of Moda Treats, which is made up of forty-two 3 1/2″ squares. You can cut your own, if you wish, from fat quarters or yardage.
Instructions are included for a zippered pillow back. Plus, you can substitute any 6″ (finished) block for the heart, as was done with the star version shown above.
Mini charms (2 1/2″) can also be used, as @zblgran did in the example above. Borders cut at 3 1/2″ will bring the top up to the original size, or go narrower for a smaller pillow. The heart block finishes at 4″ square.
The finished pillow, designed by Sterling LaBosky from Sterling Quilt Co. for Moda Bakeshop, is 18″ x 18″.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
