Default I Spy quilt for Spencer and other stuff.

Here is a quilt I was inspired to make having seen one on this board. It's rather bright and was great fun to do. Spencer's Mum was thrilled with it. I used both red and blue for the borders, just for fun.
The Flying Geese "Tranquility" was constructed using the quick method. I enjoyed doing it but it was quite heavy when finished. There is a lot of fabric in there. I see that I have mistakenly posted the pre quilted pictures, the finished ones are on my DH's camera. DOH!
The cushion was made from 2 orphan blocks which must be 3yrs old at least! They were left over from a baby girls quilt I made.

I love them all. I had fun looking at all the cute fabrics in the I-spy. I realized that I have a little bit of one of those fabrics. Your little cushion is totally adorable

I like the way you put the sashing in the I Spy quilt - it makes it easier to look at -
