Lush Paint by Number Deer Mixtape Pillows



As I previously shared, I finally broke into my stash of Lush (the famous paint by number deer line) by Erin Michael for Moda. (Which may be coming back for a reprint as hinted by this in the know Moda lady via Twitter.)  I'm quilting a crib size quilt to use as a wall hanging in my living room and from the scraps made these pillows for my couch using Elizabeth Hartman's original Mixtape pattern for the scrappy blocks.  




Here is a closeup of each pillow. All block fabrics are from the Lush line and I used Kaufman's Quilter's Linen in Taupe for the sashing.



I inserted a zipper in each pillow back (with a large overlap to protect my leather couch from the zipper) using Natalia at Piece-N-Quilt's tutorial...they turned out fabulous.




Here is a shot of the two backs...each pillow back piece was cut twice as big as the size you see and folded in half to create a double layer of fabric which should give the pillow more body and extend their life in this house full of boys.


I am linking up with {Sew} Modern Monday at Canoe Ridge Creations...check out all the great projects being shared today.

These are gorgeous!!!! I hope this line does get reprinted as I'd have loved some of the deer. It was already out of print when I discovered it. These pillows are just amazingly lovely.
