More Stashbusting - Modern Patchwork

Here I am again, sorting through my stash, not wanting to throw away these scraps of fabric. It just seems so wasteful.
Time for another project….. some modern patchwork. As lovely as traditional patchwork is, it takes on a whole new lease of life when we bring in right up into the digital age. "How do you do that?", I hear you ask…….

These graphic inspired textiles are currently all over the blogosphere, and are crying out to be made up as modern patchwork.

I decided to stick with something pretty simple - a cushion comprising of 9 rows of 9 squares, 81 squares in total. 

For anyone who'd like to give this a go HERE's what I did.
