We had a blank wall behind our King size bed and I wanted to do the barn wood or old wood planks in various distressed colors but the hubbie did not like the idea :{ 

                                      So this is what I came up with!

The rug in the room was the inspiration of colors to work with! 
Well the whole story is after covering the art canvas with my stash of quilting material I planned to arrange them in two rows or possible a circle.  I had done 8 of them.  The husband does get involved with a few projects, he suggested doing something different, one of his ideas was a check mark for CHECK ON LOVE!  Wow, what an idea, I don't know exactly his meaning of checking on Love, men do have a one track mind!  But I Loved his idea!  So I used 6 of my squares and arranged them, quite pleased with something different!  He is pleased too!
