Stuck on the Border II

In a previous post, I was indecisive about what border and binding to add to my kaleidoscope pillow.  Thanks for all your feedback!

Rummaging through my sewing supplies, I found a package of Wright’s Bias Tape Maxi Piping and my plan came together in a flash!  I was no longer stuck on the border!

I added a black border to my pillow and used the red bias tape maxi piping for an accent.  This piping went on quickly because I used the zipper foot attachment for my trusted Bernina.  Yikes!  Lots of batting fuzz on my fabric!

My walking foot was put to good use as I made my way around the outside edge, stitching in the ditch of my seam.

Here’s a look at the back of my pillow.  It has an envelope back so I can easily slip the pillow in and out of the pillow cover.

I am loving my new pillow and well, we all know “there’s no place like home”!!!!!

    Your pillow looks fabulous. Piping always adds a great professional touch. How did you finish-off the start and end of the piping?

    Wow – that is one awesome pillow! Love the use of the bias tape from your stash!!! Ah I see you are in the Bernina cult like I am – I was like #4 foot – that looks familiar (I even have the set of the Bernina Feet books…I know sad…lol)
