I never thought I'd be posting under the Quilt section of Craftster, but here I am!

I was inspired by the left over material I had after covering couch pillows to give my tan couch some more pizazz.  Before I knew it I was cutting blocks and sewing away. 

The front section took me a full day in front of the sewing machine which I had to suffer for the next day as my shoulders and back were so sore I could barely move!  The back, edging and quilting took about another two hours.

It isn't perfect but I love the colors and textures and it matches my new pillows!
