Her husband sent us a picture of the couch (it was a surprise) so we could get some idea of where to go. I'd say it turned out pretty well. This is such a fast, fun, easy quilt to make. The beauty of this is that you only need two fabrics that go well together, and you're set.
We used a palette of soft blues, grays and sand colors. We both raided our stashes and only had to buy a few filler pieces. This quilt has a very tranquil feel to it, so unlike the original LOL!
The other neat thing about this quilt, is that for each pair of fabrics, you get a positive and a negative block. See the middle row, left block (above) and below? That batik was our focal fabric.
