Here is an actual finish after 7 months! A quilt for a teenaged nephew. Parson Gray can be relied upon to produce manly but elegant fabrics perfect for boy quilts. The latest line, Katagami, is what I used for this twin sized quilt. Scroll down for quilt stats!
Dimensions: 70" by 90"
Fabrics: Katagami by Parson Gray for FreeSpirit
Backing: Kona cotton solid in Navy
Thread: Aurifil 28 wt in Grey (for the top) and Navy for the back. (Yes, it worked for machine quilting! I wasn't sure whether this thicker thread would work, I usually use a 50 wt, but it gives a nice bold stitch line a bit reminiscent of sashiko. A good fit with these Japanese inspired fabrics!)
Batting: Warm and Natural
