Pretty in Pink

alidiza:Pretty in Pink Nicey Jane hearts pillow
So winter finally decided to make an appearance in New England.  Being trapped inside makes me a bit manic so I decided to combat my cabin fever with a little holiday making...

I fell in love with Cluck Cluck Sew's adorable Red Heart pillow so I grabbed my Nicey Jane stash and started cutting...

and got a jump start on the weekend with some piecing and a Crazy Ex-Girlfriend marathon (thanks, Alexis!).

These hearts go together really quickly.  I couldn't have done this if I'd tried...  sometimes the quilt gods like to show the love;-)

I followed Allison's lead and kept the quilting simple, just stitching along the sashing lines.  And of course you can never go wrong with a striped binding!

I'm still chipping away at my lifetime supply of zippers so I went with my go to zipper closure tutorial by to S.O.T.A.K. Handmade for the back.

  1. Such a cute pillow! Your foyer looks very seasonally perfect! That's what we must do in New England!

  2. Oh I love that little cushion - in fact so much I have just pinned it!!

  3. I too love Cluck Cluck Sew's little heart pillow. Great job!

  4. Love the pillow, and the pink quilt is adorable. I would never think to put those colours with pink, but they look gorgeous together!
