More fabric scrap clearing

Back in January I signed up for a challenge that was set on the Loft Creations blog to make something using string blocks. These are basically patchwork blocks made using strips of scrap fabrics. I thought it looked fairly easy and as the deadline for completion wasn't until July I had plenty of time.

Well now that the Mothers Day orders are all done, I finally have a bit of time to myself so lastnight I tucked myself away in the studio and made this lovely cushion cover. It is 100% scraps and some of the pieces are even from curtains and cushions that my Nan had in her house many years ago.

I am really rather pleased with it and cant wait to make some more!
