4. Cut a piece of neutral fabric 17" square for the backing fabric and put aside.
5. Lay the patchwork pillow face back onto the quilt batting and safety pin to the batting in a random fashion to hold in place.
6. Quilt by hand or with machine. Example used a simple straight stitch in vertical lines changing the spacing to add interest to the pillow. Use matching thread or a contrasting color for an added design element.
7. Trim pillow front to a 17".
8. Place the piping face down in the middle of one side of the patchwork pillow face so the raw edges for the piping and pillow fabric are together.
9. Pin the corded piping around all edges of the pillow front leaving an inch of extra piping extra on each end.
10. Ease around the corners so there is a slight curve.
11. Slightly overlap the piping where they meet each other and trail off excess into the seam allowance. Trim off the excess piping.

13. Carefully cut a few clips in to the lip of the piping at each corner. This will allow the piping to lay flat.
