Patchwork Blue Cushion Cover -OPAM March

It was my friends birthday this week and I wanted to actually give a hand made gift for a change.  So I decided to finish a cushion cover panel that I made about three years ago and had stored away. 
This was at a time when I was going through a blue phase.  I had completed my blue quilt and had quite a bit of fabric left.  It is made for a 14inch cushion pad which in true style I could not get hold of in time.  So I ended up just giving her the cushion cover instead.  At the weekend I am going to track one down even if I have to cross county borders to do it!!
One of my favourite designs is the traditional log cabin and is an ideal stash buster way of using fabric.  Also after a day at work it is nice to only worry about which strip to add next, not whether is it cut out really straight or not!
So this is my first finish for March and guess what?..............I have another one to make up as well.  No more birthdays coming up though so not sure what to do with it.
Any ideas?
Just a short post as I need to get ready for a school trip to the Eden Project tomorrow.
Take care everyone.

the cover is lovely, I've never done log-cabin,hand-made gifts are always appreciated, I've not made another for ages, just can't get motivated. Jo

I am still owndering what to do with the other cushion cover. I was wondering about having a giveaway if I made it to a specific cushion pad size.
