Log Cabin Deer

Pin It
A big thanks to Amy and Madame Samm for bringing us another great blog hop!
Log Cabin Deer at Freemotion by the River
When I heard about the blog hop being "For the Boys" I knew right away that I wanted to make a couple pillows for......the brothers. I have several brothers who love hunting and anything with deer, ducks, geese, etc. is always a hit with them. We do a White Elephant exchange at Christmas and I think the deer pillows will be my gift.

I couldn't make just one.......I made a bunch of log cabin blocks and appliqued the deer on them.

Here is a closeup of the applique, I like to do a free motion squiggle, wiggle or just a straight stitch.

This brown leaf fabric was perfect for the backs.

You can find the pattern for the Deer pillow here.

Last month I finished a quilt for one of my brothers that definitely has a wildlife look, I even put camouflage fabric on the back and you can read more about it here.

  9. Wonderful pillows Connie. Very manly.

  10. Connie I absolutely love your deer pillows! Your deer is very stately! And throw pillows always need more than one or they look very lonely. Besides, you cannot possibly hope to win a pillow fight with only one pillow. One is only good for a sneak attack. Love the quilt too. Thanks so much for sharing your inspiring pillows...and the generosity of your giveaway as well!

  49. Good morning, Connie. Your pillows are really awesome--just perfect for the hunter in my family. I love the design and the quilting. My grandson loves to hunt and fish. He goes every hunting season to kill a deer. Since we have them roaming around on our property and I love to watch them, I give a speech every year about not killing MY deer I even threaten him with making him watch "Bambi" before he goes. But he just laughs. Do you think this year he would settle for a pillow instead? LOL

    ReplyDelete
  50. Great pillows. I have not always been a fan of browns but then saw a flannel quilt in all brown batiks. Now I love them. SO your log cabin in wonderful and I love the deer on them.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Beautiful, if that's the word for a manly quilt! That would fit right in a log cabin!

  66. Connie. Those are awesome Log Cabin Deer. Beautiful work. That is certainly very masculine for our hop today. And congrats for winning a place of honor at Madame Samm's page!

    ReplyDelete
  67. your deer are very dear! If I won that amazing mug rug, I would have to give it to my Pastor, who called me in to his office to show me a Christmas tree ( I decorate a lot of trees) He said he's never been too excited about a tree but I had to see the one he made- out of antlers. It is very cool and that little rug would be great with it! : )Fantastic Job!

    ReplyDelete
  68. I love the deer on the log cabin background. Your brothers are going to love them too.

  69. As usual you have created something wonderful! These are really nice and so fitting for this blog. Thanks for sharing your creations with us today.

    ReplyDelete
  70. That should be a perfect choice for the White Elephant draw. Do you separate things out so the girls are in one group and the boys in another or everything is the luck of the draw? Well done, Connie!

    ReplyDelete
  71. Oh wowsers! Those brothers of yours better like them...or you can send them to me in Texas!

  86. I have some grandsons that would love that pillow!

    ReplyDelete
  87. Connie ~ that pillow is awesome. My FIL and the other men from one part of the family where we used to go for Thanksgiving all went out hunting deer after the meal. Unfortunately he's had to stop hunting just in the past two years because of a health problem, but he would love this pillow or anything made from that.

    I already put that one on my wish list for now over at your store. I am already following your store there too. :)
