Valentine's Day Granny Square Pillow

"One of my favorite holidays is Valentine's Day - the candies, colors and all around feeling of love. My home starts to feel a bit empty and not as colorful during the time after the holidays when I put all of my Christmas decorations away. Instead of filling my home with hearts for Valentine's Day, I like to take a different approach to decorating by using some of the symbolic colors of the holiday (red and pink). 

By using just solids, you can create a project you can definitely leave out all year long. I chose a selection of Robert Kaufman Kona solids, but feel free to change up your liking or add in some fun patterned fabrics as well." - Janome Maker Nicole Daksiewicz of Modern Handcraft.

I like the concept, but the directions are "sloppy." Nowhere in the supply list does it mention the felt or the batting (how much?). Also, I would never use a high loft batting in a placemat, or a table runner, as I think that it would be too unstable for a glass. The next time I make these, I will cut out the batting (I use flannel) and spray baste it to the wrong side of the Dresden plate before I put the Dresden plate on the felt to cut out. I have not yet washed the finished placemat, and am hoping that the single layer of felt does not curl up, or become distorted after washing/drying.

I made this today but your cutting directions need to be changed. You only need 4 of color 1 and color 3 4.5 squares for the triangles. Also the inner border, you only need 2 cuts as WOF is long enough to cut each in half to fit the sides.
