|"Drunken Dragons" Drunkard's Path Quilt for Lars, 66" x 97"|
|Backing Side, with Quilted-In Scrabble Label|
The oversized twin quilt top measured 70" x 105" originally, and it finished at 66" x 97" after it was densely quilted and allowed to shrink up in the wash. The extra length was planned so that the quilt is long enough to tuck under securely at the bottom of my son's extra-thick mattress.

So now here it is, on Lars's bed:
Despite the appearance of Lars's bookshelves, we have not recently been robbed. Lars insists that this is a highly specialized organizational system and that he alone knows EXACTLY where each and every book, LEGO, trading card, and candy wrapper is located. Yeah, I'm not buying it either. But at least now we will always be able to find his bed! By the way, if Lars had won the decorating battle, all four of his walls would be the same bright orange as the brightest fabric in his quilt. I compromised with hyper-bright orange wallpaper in his en suite bathroom, and a more restful shade of blue for his bedroom walls. The Day-Glo quilt is primarily light blue and orange to tie those two areas together. The last project on my list for Lars's bedroom is a window treatment, because the window looks too bare to me with just shutters. I'll probably eventually do some kind of rectangular cornice above the window rather than drapery panels, but nothing too wild. We already have quite a bit going on in this bedroom visually!
