"Bluesfest" pillow

The 8th round of the X factor pillow swap has just been voted on so I can now share the pillow I made.
This time the theme was "text and log cabin" so I used a tutorial by Rita @ Red Pepper Quilts to make some 8.5 inch log cabin blocks.
I really wanted to make use of some of the blue text prints that I had here so based the different shades of blue on the shot cottons I used for the centres of the log cabin blocks
The pillow is backed in a fun multi coloured text print resembling selvedges and then bound in a blue stripe fabric.
This pillow is now in the mail off to its new home - it has a long way to go so hoping it make it there soon!
