Last month my "getter-done man" (aka hubby) painted the guest room, which triggered my quilting brain .... how about a big star quilt to put up instead of a headboard.    I followed a tutorial from Jeni of In Color Order, just decreased the size a bit.  
Here are the large hst's  waiting to be sewn together.

The fabrics for the front were bought at my LQS (The Marsh Store in ColdStream Ontario).   My stash provided the backing ... it's not too pretty, but no one will see it.

I'm loving it as an improv headboard :)

Thankyou Jeni for the tutorial!
