So I decided on trying a pillow. I could see quilt, but even more, I saw a pillow. I could actually imagine it on our couch. That rough abstract print juxtaposed with the soft florals, somehow they seemed ready to be tossed and fluffed.
I could see the fabric framing them too. So it was easy to do.
I chose a piece of heavy brown corduroy for the backing. It’s actually fabric that Emily gave me a few years ago. But I thought it needed something else. So I found a piece of brown crocheted trim in my stash and decided to sew it around the edge to give it an outline of sorts.
But then it got late and I got tired. So I’ll finish it tomorrow. I always have to remind myself that a flat pillow looks very different than a stuffed on. I’m never really sure what a pillow will look like until I’m done with it. I am feeling that I made the right decision though, about pillow versus quilt.
