Sitting on quilts

I'm excited to share with you the project that used up most of these scrappy red blocks....

Those blocks were used to transform my kitchen chairs from this...
to this....
Each chair used four complete bento box blocks.
I stipple quilted the blocks to a backing fabric and then they were layered over the existing fabric on the chairs.  Prudence determined that a top layer of clear vinyl would ensure that the new covers would wear a little longer.
My husband did the upholstery work for me and I'm feeling spoiled. 
    
I almost don't want to keep the chairs pushed in under the table anymore.  I'm just so happy with how they turned out.
Upon seeing the newly recovered chairs, my son declared, "Now we'll be sitting on quilts!"
(or stretching out on them as the case may be ;o)
