Rainbow Scrappy Cushion

I'm loving the pop of rainbow colours on this improv cushion I've made to gift to my family and a black and white stripey binding is always a winner.

Having been asked to take part in the Kelly Young's Stash Statement Book Blog Hop, it was an easy choice deciding which pattern from the book to make up.  The central block in the Bloom Chicka Boom pattern is perfect for highlighting a fussy cut fave fabric or to include a fabric photo for a very special gift.
