I've been updating my family room over the last few months.  I don't share pictures of it very often.  Just little tid bits here and there.  Because, although I have about a million windows in my house, I can't seem to get enough light in to get some good pictures.  I really wish I had some better photography skills, but I don't.  Hopefully someday :)  Anyways, it's still not finished but the main parts are done.  

The two sofas, the recliner (for the man of the house), the ottoman...then the second ottoman (the fabric on the first one kept pulling the top cushion off center so we had it replaced.  It had more teal and brown in it but luckily I found another fabric that I thought worked with my color scheme.  Unfortunately, my pillows just look a little out of place now :)

 I'm loving some table space to finally be able to display more family photos.

And well.  After all this, I decided we needed a new snuggle quilt for watching TV with.

So, I decided to use my pattern, Square Dance.  I almost quadrupled the size and now it's big enough for even my 6' 3" husband.  

Minky on the back was of course a necessity.

This pattern is charm pack friendly.  And I like that although the blocks aren't huge, it still works well to showcase some of those bigger print fabrics.

If this tickles your fancy and you want to make one too...hop on over to my Etsy Shop where you can use this coupon code (SQUAREDANCE) to receive 20% off a Square Dance pattern of your own!  

*Coupon is good till the end of the month.

And hey, if you didn't know ~ I now have digital patterns available for quick and easy download!

Oh.  And did I mention that I collected so much fabric for this quilt that I decided to make up some charm packs?  There are only two left though so snatch them up soon if you're interested!

Thanks for stopping by today!  I hope you enjoyed seeing a little peak into my never-ending work in progress ~ my home :)

Happy quilting!
