So it took me just over 1 year to start and finish making the couch blanket for Paula and Leslie's cocker spaniel Buttons (the idea came to me on February 5 last year!)...

I love the pattern - it's imagery is perfect! ("Heart" for love of Buttons and each other and their "home" together.) And, it will go nicely in their livingroom with the Quilt Afghan I finished for Paula in January 2004.

Buttons likes to lay on the back of the couch - much like Cleo is modeling in one of the above photos. I arranged the blanket squares so that the images will be right-side up either way the blanket is placed lengthwise over the back of the couch.
