The Quilt I 'won'

So ages ago, I entered a giveaway at Ariane's Crafts and won a bunch of great 5" blocks for her 100th giveaway. I was so excited that I knew I was going to quilt them into something great right away, so I didn't post about winning. Ariane was great and even threw in these extras -
Here it is exactly 1 month after I received the blocks, and I finished. I know that many people could have done MUCH better than this, and I toyed with going more complex, but in the end I really liked the simplicity of this design. I added about three of my own squares to even it out, but the rest are from Ariane's great blocks.

While I was sewing, someone laid claim to the quilt as his own. He would seriously get mad at me when I went to work on it. He preferred it to just be his snuggle blanket. As soon as it was finished, he no longer wanted anything to do with it.
As you can see it fits on the couch perfectly and looks pretty darn good, if I do say so myself! I can see my quilting and sewing skills improving each time I make something.**Sorry picture is inside with camera phone, will take a better picture when the sun is out.
