    New Couch Throw

    I finally finished this project! I bought the fabric last summer, and then was busy packing for a move, and didn't start it until fall. Then school, and a Christmas rush of sewing and knitting hit, and I wasn't able to finish until today. I also made a small lap quilt out of the extra fabric, which is waiting to be bound. It is quilted with an all over meander.

    Thanks for looking! (sorry the pics aren't that great. I'm a terrible photographer! )

    Oh, I really like the colors. We are getting a new couch and contrasting upholstered chair with colors of merlott and sage green. This would look awesome with it! Thank you for sharing. It is very nicely done.

    No, it is called "Just Can't Cut it". I got it from my LQS before we moved back in August.

    Very nice job! I love the wood behind the sofa. It is just as beautiful as the quilt.

    thank you all so much!

    The wood behind the couch is my favorite feature of the house! The dining room area has a lot of nice woodwork too, and the stair case is all original wood work. We are very blessed!
