A Finished Quilt for Max

My son Max has finally received a bed quilt from me.  He requested something simple, with dark colours and not too heavily quilted.



 

For the main fabric pieces, I used a bundle of World Tour by Parson Gray and a bundle of Juggling Summer by Zen Chic.  The black is Kona and I used the same black for the binding.



 

The pattern is from the April 2011 edition of Quilter's World called "Greydations".

The quilt finishes at about 66" x 88".

For the quilting, I quilted the prints with a soft meander in light grey Aurifil 50 wt thread and in the black rows, I quilted square spirals with black Aurifil. You can see the quilting on the back on the quilt which is a soft cotton sheet.



 

Max was very happy with his quilt and I was very pleased to know that my son will be sleeping wrapped in something I made just for him.  :-)

This is my last finish for this quarter and was on my Q2 FAL List.



 

I will be linking up at Crazy Mom Quilts and at Quokka Quilts for TGIFF.

  11. Des spirales carrées, tu es courageuse. Mon garçon m'en a demandé, je lui ai dit que c'était trop difficile. Tu les as faites à l'oeil ou tu les a marquées ? En tout cas, elles semblent très réussies.

  12. This is fabulous - love the mix of fabrics with the dark sashing. I always like seeing quilts made for guys as I have some Parson Grey "Curious Nature" here to make quilts for 2 my teenage sons.
