I am using MM fondant to make a pillow cake. Does anyone have any tips on how to get the quilted design or how to make the tufted look around the buttons? Here is another cake on here I would love to duplicate.

I know they make impression mats that make the quilted pattern. You can find them online.

I was going to refer you to helipops' instructions because her pillow cake has what you were requesting information about...then I clicked on your example link, and it's helipops' cake!

carve the cake to look like your pillow, carve out the indents for the buttons, cover in fondant, use a rotary embossing tool to mark quilt lines, a ball tool for the tufts

Looks like the quilting was done with a stitching wheel and the tufting I'm guessing is done with a dresden tool.

that's what that thing is called, thans bobwonderbuns! Is the dresden the flat tool? I didn't think to try that. The ball tool is my duct tape tool - it fixes everything!

ha ha ha!! Some manufacturers call it a veining tool and others call it a dresden tool. Basically it's the same thing, two ended with a flattened slightly curved end with one end of the tool being thinner than the other. (Oh yeah, that made sense!) icon_rolleyes.gif Here's some examples:
