Jon is my sweetie's oldest son. I have made a quilt for every single one of our kids - some of our children even got multiple quilts, but Jon had yet to receive one. And he reminded me every chance he got!
So a few weeks ago, I finally got started on a quilt for Jon.
This "child" is a 6'2", 240 lbs 25 year-old man - so the quilt needed to be pretty masculine. I knew a modern design would be perfect for him - clean, simple and definitely no frills or floral patterns!
I chose a pattern I found in an old issue of Quilter's World called Zen Garden. I used 3 different shades of Kona greys and some grey, green and blue prints for just a shot of colour. For the binding, I went with a white print on black.
For the quilting, I decided to go super simple and stitched straight vertical lines with my walking foot.
The finished size is about 62' x 75" - perfect for a quick snooze on the couch. I'm happy to report that he is very pleased with his quilt. So much so that I only had time to take one picture before he grabbed it and took it home!
This is finish #3 on my 2015 Q2 FAL! Making progress! :-)
I will be linking up at Crazy Mom Quilts for Finish It Up Friday and at TGIFF.
Have a fabulous weekend!
