"Hexie Dragon" One Block Wonder #2 November 1st, 2014

Today I gave my hairdresser Paul a gift for his 50th birthday. He turned 50 in January. I know, better late than never.  I had shown Paul a picture of my "One Block Wonder" quilt a few years ago.  He was fascinated by the patterns that develop in the quilt pattern.  I told him I would make him a quilt someday, and he gave me some upholstery fabric with the colors that reflect his home decor as inspiration. It took me about two years to find the right fabric that had the colors he likes that would work with the "One Block Wonder" pattern. 
Here Is the fabric:
It's called "Tatsu" by Alexander Henry. I was worried that Paul might not like dragons, but it turns out his birth year was the year of the dragon! 
Here's the quilt this morning ready to be delivered. It's cold and raining here today, so no outside pictures with natural light.
He loves the quilt. Doesn't it feel great to surprise someone with a quilt?
