Finish it Up! Friday - 13 January

This week's finish is brought to you courtesy of my son. He did not make this quilt, but he did design it, and has waited patiently for ever (since last summer) for it to be finished. In my defense, he only picked the fabric last month. And oh, what fabrics he picked:

The center panel on the front is a nylon flag from our local low-cost imports shop. I was a little worried about using the nylon, but it has turned out well. I backed the nylon panel with solid white cotton, the kind I often use for backings, so even if it gets tugged about and the stitches snag the nylon I won't worry about the batting bearding through.

The finished piece is slightly smaller than a standard twin size, as it's for a top bunk, measuring 50" wide x 80" long:

You can find out more about this pattern on my Craftsy page, here.

He does love it - I cannot articulate the joy I get seeing him balled up in a quilt I made!
