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!
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!
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!
This sweet print, Little Floral in Gray is my absolute favorite!!
For the 1/2" quilting stitches I just let the presser foot be my guide -- easy, fast, and fun!!
