ain't nothin' but a houndstooth

Another quilt in the books. Done and delivered.

I have been working on this one for so long - it feels good to have it in the owner's rightful hands. Love this pattern! I think I'd like to try it in navy and white, or mustard yellow and white. Anyone out there tried one of these combos yet?
I quilted diagonal lines throughout. The back is gray flannel with a bright lime green stripe for a little character.

Awesome! I've haven't used flannel yet in any of my quilts. Tempting.

I am so glad you linked her blog to this post! I had wondered how her sweet fmaily was doing! And she had another baby! LOVE hearing that! It is amazing how hard and how deeply we cheer for people we have never met! Gorgeous quilt Sarah!

merideth,
the couch is the Michael Weiss Vivian Sofa from Alice Lane. I ordered the extended version. I bought it on the annual, or semi-annual (can't remember), Michael Weiss discount sale.
I love gray. Love your style too!

Aimee,
I thought about elaborating on my friend's history a little, but didn't. They are doing well and this new baby isn't really a baby anymore. I am slow.

This is a pattern I've wanted to try, I'm really into two toned quilts right now. Lovely!
