This is my Valentine's pillow (which I'm not entering) but I'd never posted about. I was finishing up my Spinning Coins Quilt and I had leftover fabric (that I'm ridiculously in love with) and had to find a way to use it.
And here is my Spring Pillow
Originally I was thinking of an Easter pillow, and using a bunny instead of a deer. But then I realized I like deer more, plus it will be Spring and I can keep it out longer!!
I love my deer friend. I'm still playing around with her name. Any thoughts? :) I played around with how to design it, considering a white background and patchwork deer. Ultimately I liked how the deer stood out in white with the pink embroidery stitches.
I wanted the background to be scrappy, but in the same color palette so nothing really stood out. I believe there are 12 different fabric prints used. I just started with one square and started sewing and trimming! Came together really fast.
There you go! Check out the Pillow Party for plenty of cute pillows :)
We'll see you tomorrow for Fabric Tuesday and a great feature on Wednesday!
