Liam's Quilt Top

Well, I have been working with Liam to make him the "perfect" quilt. He found this dragon fabric a few years ago, and knew he wanted it in his quilt. I have had a really hard time figuring out how to make it what he wanted.
Well, we finally decided we would just do it!
So we drew, we talked, we hunted for fabrics. He decided he didn't really want me cutting up his precious dragon fabric, so it will be used on the back. I cut and sewed, and FINALLY I have the top done! Now I have to figure out how I'm going to quilt it, and if I'm going to add some embroidery.
Decisions are what take me so long! The sewing went quickly as did the cutting. Well, it's a huge milestone, I'm over the hump at least. Hopefully I will have a chance to finish it next week!
PS The picture is before it was pressed, and I added a bit more black to the outside. It's a super twin size, all the men in my husband and my family are at least 6' tall, so I wanted this to last my Liam for awhile.

Hi Enzri,
Beautiful blanket. I've a question about your Celtic knot square. Are you going to publish the pattern on Ravelry? If not I would like to adopt the square, make the pattern, call it Enzri's Celtic square and publish it for free on Ravelry.
Please let me (and everybody else who has this as a favorite) know.
