This picture has nothing to do with a learning curve except this is the fabric I used for the back.
Now since I had no plan and I was practicing per say - I just did plain borders around the pillow. I wanted to try my hand at mitering the corners but since I was using scrap fabrics I didn't have enough nor did I cut enough to miter the corners. Next time for sure when I have my plan. I have the other half of the pillow and more of these little squares so we'll just try again. They say practice makes perfect and I'm pretty happy with my end result. Now I just need to find these colors in my house!
