Yesterday I shared my Valentine Heart Tutorial, today I am showing you what I made with my blocks.
I made two 12 inch blocks and turned them into cushion covers. I love having a little bit of Valentine decor around the house. I added two small borders around the block in order to make them big enough to fit my 18 inch pillow form.
To make the inner border cut 2, 1.5 inch x 12.5 inch strips and 2, 1.5 inch x 14.5 inch strips. For the outer border cut 2, 2 inch x 14.5 inch strips and 2, 2 inch x 17.5 inch strips.
Then I quilt the front like I would for a mini quilt, then just turn it into a cushion cover. I love Svetlana's tutorial at s.o.t.a.k handmade. I just adjust the size depending on how bit my cushion is.
My tutorial also includes the 6 inch size, which I used in my LOVE mini quilt. I think a larger quilt at some point my be in my future, but for now I will enjoy another completed scrappy project!
