A Quilted House Pillow { A Riley Blake Design Team Tutorial } : :

Quilted House Pillow

I had so much fun sewing with these adorable Little Red Riding Hood Fabrics! Before they were even available, I had requested them for an RBD Design Team project, just to make this Quilted House Pillow! 

I'm loving these Little Red Riding Hood fabrics! They are so cute!!

For my pillow, I used a several of my most favorite prints in reds, grays, and aqua, along with a couple RBD Basic Solids. To construct the pillow, I used some basic quilting, simple & fun patchwork, applique, and a few special embellishments that you can really have some fun with! I kept the little details pretty modest for the tutorial sake, still I hope to make more of this pillow design, adding in some extra hand-stitched details and applique!

Supplies for Applique

Little Details
I used a 28wt cotton Aurifil thread in aqua from my newly received Simply Color Thread Collection and the applique stitch on my Janome, and it worked beautifully!

House Pillow Details

This sweet print, Little Floral in Gray is my absolute favorite!!

Favorite Corner

For the 1/2" quilting stitches I just let the presser foot be my guide -- easy, fast, and fun!!

  1. Cute, cute, cute! You know, I wonder if you could make this into one of those "blanket in a pillow" mats for a pre-school resting project. I don't have little girls to sew for, but just thinking that would be really cute.

    1. Thanks Gayle! That's a great idea! I actually sketched out a design for a House Quilt, similar to this, with lots of applique! Hopefully I can find time for it sooner than later. It would be the cutest little crib quilt!

  22. Love Love Love - as I said over on Riley Blake's blog. Amazing Maureen. Curious though what did you do with the 2 quilted corners you cut off the roof? wondering if you quilted them the other way so they are cross quilted could you make mini houses with them?
    Can't wait to get some Little Red and see if the colours do really go with my precious Little Apples by Aneela Hoey (the styles are very similar) and I think they will look amazing together. I am already planning to put these little houses on my daughters new bed with her Little Apples Apple Crate quilt which I am dreaming of making for her. So much fabric love and inspiration.
