Star Bright

So I am finally decorating my house after living in it for 2 1/2 years...  I could say I was too busy, or to distracted or didn't have the resources.  But, truth be told, I guess I was just procrastinating (I did mention that I am the Supreme Queen of Procrastination, right?).  We moved into this house with the intention of sharing it with our grown son and my mom.  So I did not decorate right away thinking that each person would bring their own tastes and that I would want to try to blend those styles to make everyone feel at 'home'.  Well, I waited and I waited.  My son did live with us for 2 of the years we have been here, but his belongings were pretty much confined to his area upstairs.  Then guess what? He fell in love and married and moved out. mom has NOT moved in with us yet.  I am tired of waiting on others and tired of procrastinating.  So here goes.
My walls have been blank (for the most part) up until now.  I can't stand it any longer.  When I saw this Star Bright pattern being posted by friends on InstaGram I decided that it would be just the right thing to brighten up my den... and so I gathered up all I needed and made it.  You can find the FREE (yes, I said FREE) pattern on Craftsy, click here Star Bright Free Quilt Pattern.
Here are my results

Playing with fabric placement..

I left it in the floor for a week...

Pieced and quilted.  Ready for the wall!!

I made new covers for the throw pillows on my couch too!

We painted the front door Tiffany Blue.
Sorry this picture is from Christmas.
(My husband is not the procrastinator that I am.)
