Admittedly, I finished these two quilts before I got terribly, terribly sick. However, I am really glad to finally post them and be done with Houndstooth quilts for a (long) while.
These quilts are rewarding once the quilt top is laid out and ready to be sewn together. Before that point, it is too repetitive and monotonous for me to really get into. I love the finished product, but it was just a bit too much labor to get there!
To save on frustration, I would recommend squaring up anything you can square up before sewing it to another piece. I finally learned that when I sewed together the girl quilt and even though it took a lot longer to make, it was no where near as frustrating.
I probably will make this quilt again in the future, the finished product is too good not to, but I am glad to know that I should not make that commitment lightly!
For the girl quilt I used Kona White, Kona Cerise, and Kona Iron for the back. For the boy quilt I used Kona White and Kona Iron.
I am glad that these two are checked off the list!
