Back Support Travel Pillow

What are you most proud of? Well, I got MOST of the seams to match perfectly, but still need to figure out how to get all of them sewn up perfectly. What advice would you give someone starting this project? I stitched the first two rows together using a regular foot and in spite of careful matching and pinning of the seams and securing the edges, the pieces went into the machine perfectly matched but some seams came out a little off the mark. So then I tried using the walking foot and that seemed to make a difference. However, I still had a few seams that were not perfectly matched. My advice to you is what I'm telling myself: use a walking foot and practice, practice, practice!
