Katagami Bricks Quilt

It's been so long I'm kind of blanking at the moment as to how I do this.  How do I put pictures in, again? :)

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!

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

  1. Hi Carla, I'm a fairly new follower and am enjoying your blog. The balance of this Quilt is lovely. Can you tell me how big your rectangular blocks are? Finished or cut size would be great. I made a similar quilt but was disappointed in the finished balance. Your is lovely. Thanks in advance for sending me the block size. -Ellie

    1. Hi Ellie. I cut my rectangles to 4.5" by 10" and it seemed to make good, efficient use of the fat quarters I was using.

  3. Your Katagami quilt is perfect for a teenage boy - always love how you use the Parson Gray fabrics in your quilts!

  4. You only showed the one photo on IG but that second photo really shows the quilt well. It's lovely and one that any guy (or girl really) would love.

  5. The fabrics look like some of the Japanese cottons I bought on my holiday there about a year ago. I can see why they would suit a teenaged boy.
    I wonder why he named the range katagami? I think it means paper pattern, but I could be wrong about the kata bit.
