Finally I finished a quilted pillow just for me! I had this awesome paint-by-numbers fabric from Moda for quite some time. It's one of those prints languishing in your stash that you keep pulling out and then putting back. The large design of the deer and bird fabric made me hesitant to cut it into bits. Then I spotted this pillow pattern and it was perfect to preserve those deer.
The quilting is quite dense, but I left the centre square mostly alone. Two different thread colours were used and I just had fun with the straight-line quilting. I love the back just as much with the bird fabric and faux wood. And more of the crazy bright orange from the binding. (Truth be told, I had to add the cuff because that was the largest bit of the bird fabric I had left after fussy-cutting flowers from it for the front. But, shh, it's our secret!)
The pillow looks great on my deep brown couch. Now to make my Hazel into a pillow to join it!
