Manly Quiltage

Cutting into this today for my teen guys.

My two eldest boys (age 14 and 16) are woefully lacking in quiltage, compared to the rest of the family. When I saw this line of fabrics(designed by Amy Butler's husband!) it said "hello" to me.  And "you must make me into two matching quilts". Honest.

Anyways, the fabric is called Curious Nature and the prints have really cool names like Darkwater Starcomb, Night Empire Mark, and Academy Universe. I love hearing about the inspirations for designs and this one Really drew me in. Read about it on the designers website: Parson Gray.

Here is what I have so far. One quilt will be predominately in blues and the other in green.

  1. Looking good! It really is a great line. These quilts will suit them for a very long time.

    1. That's what I thought! The fabrics are so beautiful, but so masculine. Rare to find.

  2. Love the Plus quilt idea in the 2 colourways! I have just bought a FQ set of Curious Nature to make quilts for my twin 13yo sons.
