Giant I-Spy Cushion

On Wednesday night I finished this giant 24" I-Spy cushion for Master 3.

It's made up of four 12.5" blocks that I randomly pieced improv style from all manner of boy type fabrics. Some scraps, some stash.

I had a go at free motion quilting for the first time on something other than a secondhand pillowcase stuffed with scrap batting. It's certainly not perfect but it's not too bad and definitely better than I expected. I used a lovely variegated King Tut thread.

Master 3 chose this motorbike print for the back. Motorbikes are the flavour of the month.

I used this great tutorial to put the cushion cover together. These cushions are a great way to use up scraps and practice free motion quilting. I will definitely be making more.

Linking up with Quilt Matters for TGIFF.


  1. So fun, Waverlee! I love the prints you used, especially the motorcycles. Thanks for linking up to TGIFF!

  2. I still have not made my three eye spy cushions. Good on you.
