Amber designed this patchwork project for Making No. 4 / LINES. This item is a PDF download of the individual pattern.

From Amber:

This striking pillow uses inserted flat piping to create broken, parallel lines of patchwork. The off-kilter lines are reminiscent of the natural flow of hand drawn marks, dotted lines, or dashes on a treasure map. Calming in its subtle inconsistencies, the repeating pattern allows a touch of randomness and the hand-making process to influence the finished block.
The technique of inserting contrasting flat piping makes what seems like intricate patchwork come together relatively quickly. The piping is pressed to one side or the other, shifting it visually. Like footsteps to and fro, lines march across the pillow.
This project is finished by sewing the block into a pillow cover. You may also choose to create multiple pathway blocks and stitch them together into a larger quilt.
