Valentine Pillowghan Square

Image of Valentine Pillowghan Square Designed By Julie A. Bolduc

This 12in by 12in pillowghan square has hearts on the inside red rows. If look closely, you can see them. The hearts are made with cluster stitches worked over 2dc. It is a fun and fairly fast square to make and would make a great pillowghan square for a friendship exchange.
