This machine reverse applique tutorial is so simple and it couldn't be sweeter! The Reverse Applique Gathered Heart Pillow features a ruched pink heart set against a pure white background for a charming Valentine's Day throw pillow. If you have never tried to reverse applique, this is a great project to use to learn how to applique in a new way. Reverse applique is created by cutting a hole into the top layer of the quilted project to display the fabric underneath. This gorgeous free pillow pattern uses this technique beautifully. You are going to love it.

What a gorgeous pillow! This would make a lovely addition to my bedspread. Thanks for the idea!
