Bloggers Pillow Party

Have you seen or participated in Rachel from Stitched in Color's Blogger's Pillow Party? (that was hard to say!)  Well I've been admiring for the last couple of months, and since I've been on this kick of making holiday and seasonal pillows, I thought I'd enter my spring pillow!

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!

It is a sweet little deer. Would Bambi be TOO obvious?!Great pillow, good luck!

I love both of your cushions. I think the deer is a great alternative to a rabbit, I would call her means 'white'.

Dorian the Deer :D:D The pillow looks super cool. Love the pastel blues on the background!

If the little deer ever needs a new home, it would always be welcome at mine ;)

It is just so cute and the colours are beautiful! :)

I really love your Valentine's Day pillow. I have some leftover fabric from a quilt I made my daughter. It's a super design. quick and easy. I will have to make one and add her first initial at the top instead.

I do like it! So sweet looking.

I think if it was mine I'd be calling it Bambi. :-)
