Yesterday I made a second pillow for the couch. Similar scraps and patchwork to the first, but this time I used the quilt-as-you-go method. I didn’t want the edges to be solid strips, so I pieced those before sewing them on and quilting them. I also experimented in some of the sections, changing the direction of the quilted lines, adding some angles and a maze-like pattern in the largest dark piece. It was fun, but slower than the previous pillow where I did the overall quilting after making the pillow top.
Now it has joined its fraternal twin in the living room. And once again, a cat guards the quilting.
