Plaid Quilt

I've been collecting these 6" squares for years, and it was finally time to assemble them into a quilt. There are at least two each pattern, but no more than four. There is one I didn't plan to use that only has three. After assembling 80 blocks, I decided I needed another row, but that was as big as it could get. Before we moved, I found the two fabrics I used for the front. One of my quilter friends suggested I incorporate somewhere to "rest the eye." I did buy some solid fabric, but I could not incorporate it into the design.I am very pleased with how it turned out, despite how busy it is. It was hard to find fabric to coordinate with so many colors, and both the wood grain and navy crosshatch are perfect. I am pleased with how pleased I am with it, given how much I loved the very different color palette of my last quilt.
