Start by cutting two pieces of fabric in a lighthouse shape for the appliques

Adding quilting appliques to a pillow cover pattern is a great way to add a touch of nautical charm, and it all starts with several pieces of fabric cut in the shape of a lighthouse and several beach houses. If you’re feeling confident, challenge yourself by cutting out the quilt blocks freehand or use the template we created in our pattern (which goes through the steps in more detail). For the quilting enthusiasts out there, quilting tools like paper templates, fabric markers and rotary cutters will help make precise quilt block shapes, though with applique, you can afford to not be as precise than if it were a pieced block. No matter how you go about doing it, using quilts appliques can be a fun way to bring your summer-inspired pillow covers to life!

Use free motion quilting to “draw” the outlines over your appliqued pieces

Free motion quilting can add whimsy and charm to any creative project! If you’re looking to spruce up a pillow cover pattern, free motion quilting is the perfect way to draw attention to your appliqued pieces. With free motion quilting, you can bring your idea of beautiful designs and patterns to life. Quilt threads in various colors and patterns are used as artful outlines that trace the outside edges of applique pieces, allowing them to stand out with no effort. Personally, we prefer a nice black thread to create that “drawn” look to the outlines – but use your own sewing creativity! Get ready for free motion fun!

Create the pillow cover in an envelope fashion for a quick and easy back

If you’re looking for a surefire way to spruce up any room and add a touch of hominess with minimal effort, this seaside pillow fits the bill. Use an envelope back for the pillow cover and you can avoid using any zips and then the cover can come off and is machine washable. With an envelope back design, this super simple pattern creates a finished product you’ll be proud to show off – no tricky closures or hours spent struggling with tiny stitches. Not only that, but you can even create multiple pillow covers and change it up with each season – great if you like to decorate for the seasons and a full pillow is too bulky to store! So, get creative and create something both functional and beautiful – envelope back pillow covers may just be your next favorite project.

Once you’ve sewn the pillow cover created, slip a pillow form in to finish it off

Adding a pillow form to your seaside pillow cover quilting pattern will take it from good to great! No need for fussy buttons or zippers; effortlessly slip your form in and you’re done – just like that. Throw on the couch, bed, or anywhere you want to add an extra touch of seaside vibes. Crafting doesn’t get much easier than this – so why not give it a try? After all, who wouldn’t love a seaside vibe makeover?
