Throw Pillow Two
The patterns on both sides of this pillow were outlined in white. So I bound this pillow in white, rather than just sewing the two sides together. I really like how it looks.
Hand stitching the last bit of binding in place was tricky with the pillow stuffed in there. I did a great job - I can't tell which edge had the opening in it! All of the binding corners are sharp, too. How did I manage that? I never get sharp corners.
Not much quilting on this pillow. I simply added some radiating lines on the squares. I didn't want any quilting to cross the white. All I needed was enough to tack the batting and add a little interest to the top.
