Shaggy Quilted Hearts

 This is my kind of quilting.....sloppy!  No need for detail sewing. These hearts have a raw edge that you top stitch.

A few years ago, my mother in law (her name is Kathy) helped me make a sunflower wall hanging using this method.  I thought it would be fun to try with hearts. 
I didn't intend to make pillows, but as I was piecing them together the idea came to me.
  I had a ton of pink dyed and coffee stained filters left from my last project, so I used them with the fabric.  I love their texture! 
My topstitching was NOT 100% accurate, but that's alright!  Don't cringe Kathy! One day I'm going to spotlight her quilts.  They are AMAZING!   
I added a little tulle. Is that how you spell it?  Why oh why does blogger not have spellcheck?
Here's how you do it...if you want to try.

Sew them back together.
 I sewed and stuffed this pillow and sewed the extra two onto linen and put them into an old frame. 
Good sewing skills are not required! :)

I have no sewing skills, but think I might try some hand sewing -- I'll start with small hearts and see how tht goes. Your heart pillows are adorable and I like that they are mismatched -- shabby and adorable. Blessings :) Tammy
