It's finally DONE.
Meet my beautiful "Houndstooth Plaid" quilt.
(notice my way cool neighbor's Neil and Rita's amazeballs backyard. Rita collected "road kill" hubcaps off of the streets and freeways of Long Beach for years and has them all proudly displayed on the back fence. Please pardon the distracting dappled sunlight. This was the best I could do!)
This quilt has challenged me in so so many ways.
It's not a HARD quilt. It's actually fairly straightforward and simple (it's 6.5" squares) but lawd almighty it was a study in tenacity. I wanted to give up several times. It's rather tedious (no pretty fabric to pet) and accuracy is a must.
And I love it.
Like true love. Like wanted to keep it and stroke it and roll up in it.
But all along it's been a gift for my little dude.
And I gave it to him on Christmas and he was stunned.
It's just a tad bigger than queen size (here it is on my california king bed)

So it's perfect for his 6'7" frame. And he loves it. Which at the end of the day is all that matters.
One last look. Because, well. Yeah.
(I will be writing a tutorial for this eventually. And I will be making another one. Maybe with turquoise. Because I love turquoise!)
