It's been a cushionpalooza around here lately! After my Spike the Echidna cushion that was quickly adopted by Anna, Lucy decided she wanted a special cushion for her bed too. Who am I to refuse? There will come a day when my kids will probably be embarrassed by me making things for them, so I'll embrace their enthusiasm for now!
I made nine of these economy blocks using this tutorial by Red Pepper Quilts. Instead of any kind of theme or colour scheme I just decided to go random and scrappy. Somehow it works!
I can't decide which blocks are my favourite but I think the sweetcorn block and the kid on the scooter are up there! Fussy cutting is fun but I made an absolute mess of my stash searching through for prints that would work well at a 3" square size. For more info on fussy cutting I put together a guide a couple of weeks ago - check it out here.
For the back I kept with colourful theme and used a piece of this pretty Valori Wells fabric I've had in my stash for a long time.
I've been enjoying making so many cushions lately and I was thinking we could have a sew along and make a cushion to share via instagram or link party? Would you be keen to sew along?
