GO! Pillow Talk: Hearts Around Pillow

I’m really excited about a new project that I’m doing with AccuQuilt! It’s called Pillow Talk!! Each month for the rest of the year, I’ll be bringing you a new pillow design. And the best part?! They’re FREE patterns available on the AccuQuilt website.


We are kicking off today with the Hearts Around Pillow! You can get the pattern here.


Along with each pattern, I’m offering a cool technique! You can check out AccuQuilt’s blog here to read about how to use paper to make appliqué designs on the AccuQuilt! As you can see, this is an appliqué pillow which makes it both fun and FAST! I whipped up this version using all white hearts on a red background! I stitched around each heart with the trusty blanket stitch. (It’s stitch 1329 on my Bernina 530 Swiss Edition. It’s one of my favorite stitches.)


Thanks so much to AccuQuilt for this great opportunity! It’s going to be an action-packed (and pillow-packed!) year! I’ll see you February with the next pillow. My couch is about to be even more full than it already is!

  1. My word, you make such beautiful designs. I would love classes with you but have no way to do it at this time. I hope to keep your website saved for the future. I would love, love to follow your quilting, designs and blogs. Blessing, Bev

  2. This actually has me excited. And I love that you not only the white pillow, but the red pillow as well. I probably would have passed if I had only seen the white. But now as soon as the superbowl is done, I will have to get the die and get to work. Too cute!

  3. This is great, Lee! I have a new and very empty couch and an Accuquilt Go! cutter. I’ll be looking to you to make me (well, my couch, anyway!) look fabulous by the end of the year!

  4. Love the Heart pillow. I have a neutral living room and just adda red pillow or green etc for each holiday. This will fit in perfectly with what I already do. THANKS!

  5. This sounds great. I was lucky to get the new Accuquilt Go Big for Christmas so I think pillows will be a great project.

  6. I have decided to gift my grown girls seasonal items for their homes. I am going to start with your heart pillow! I have the die already and am going to use it on this project for the first time. Thanks!
