Lush Economy Block

I have obsessed before about my love of the Lush line by Erin Michael.  I collected quite a few of the prints and the similar Up Town, and recently was able to add to my collection the elusive paint by number deer print with the reprint named Lush Uptown.  The only problem was that I could not bring myself to cut into the fabric until I found the perfect pattern that displayed the large scale deer print. 

Have you seen the #economyblockalong
These are all over instagram and some of my favorite blogs as well.  

There are lots that are being made at 6.5 inch squares, mine are 12.5.

The larger blocks are perfect to show off the deer and use some of the various accompanying fabrics as well, and a stack of random solids that seem to match well.

This is what I have so far, I figure it will end up 6 rows, so half way there. 


  1. Love Lush - why don't I have any? Must remedy this situation!

  2. Looking fab Diane. Its amazing how a pattern comes along and we just know exactly what fabric we will use to make it.

  3. Hi Diane! You've been keeping busy over here! I've always been impressed with your ability to keep cranking out the quilts! :) Great job. Love the low volume quilt in previous posts, too.

  4. What a perfect block to showcase your fabric!
