Geared for Guys Blog Hop and Giveaway

  • Faith
  • May 19, 2012

Last November I had the crazy idea that I would make a quilt for my husband. I thought I would line the back in fleece or something cozy and make the front some sort of “man design”. I had no idea where to even start. And every idea I came up with, my husband nixed. So…he got no quilt for Christmas. Designing a quilt for a man is hard.

That’s why when Emily Herrick of Crazy Old Ladies emailed me about her new book, Geared for Guys, I was pretty excited! (And it also features John Adams of Quilt Dad Quilts…man = true “man quilt” expert, right?) If Emily’s name sounds familiar to you, it’s probably from her super popular fabric lines, Going Coastal and Hall of Fame. Well she has a new collection debuting this weekend at Quilt Market called Shore Thing. Looks like another winner that pairs perfectly with Going Coastal. And would work great in a man-quilt!

Back to the book though. Geared for Guys has 8 quilt patterns, all designed with men in mind. I like that there are patterns for all different types of guy…the preppy guy (Ivy League quilt pattern):

The rugged guy (Helix quilt pattern):

The alternative guy (Odd Ball quilt pattern – this one would be perfect for my guy, and not just because of the pattern name! ;)):

The quilts use a lot of solids in neutral and blenders which I think makes for more manly quilts.

Now for the giveaway! (I told you earlier this week it was Christmas in May around here.) Just leave a comment and one of you will win a copy of the book. If you’ve made a man quilt, I’d love to hear about it. If you’ve tried and failed, I’d love to hear about that too! I’m sure there are some funny stories out there. I will pick a winner Tuesday evening. Good luck everyone!

++ Closing comments to pick a winner! ++

The winner is #191, Fran Daoust. Fran said “My daughter made a quilt for my husband. it does have flowers and leaves but he loves it because she made it. I am planning on making some manly quilts with wool.”

Congratulations Fran! I will email you for your address. Thanks for commenting everyone!

    I never made a quilt for a guy (you can’t count my 2 and 4 year old sons ;o)) and I must confess I feel a bit intriqued. That’s why I’d love to win this book: to finally get me started! Thanks for the giveaway, Faith!

    I’m currently in the process of making a man quilt, using grey, blue and red and a geometric pattern, very manly. So far I’m liking what I see of the Geared for Guys quilt patterns, they look graphic and striking.

    I’ve still got a man quilt to make. I’m owing a quilt to my DH, everyone has already got a quilt of their own save him, so it’s time.
    I’ve tried to put fabrics together for a man quilt a few times, but the patterns always are “un-manly” – I even had troubles selecting the fabrics for my sons’ quilts.

    Years back I crocheted a huge work in burgundies and greys for my husband… haven’t found anything since then to make for my husband or sons, so this book is looking very helpful.

    I’m ashamed to say that of all the quilts I’ve made I haven’t made one for my husband!

    The very first quilt I made for a guy was a lap quilt using a fence rail pattern for my dad. He loves the color bright red so I used 6 different red or red/white fabrics. It was one of my first quilts, so it is full of imperfections, but my dad loves it and uses it still. Thanks for the chance of winning Emily’s book.

    I have never made a quilt for a man specifically but I love to make quilts with the browns and colours that would appeal to anyone.
    I love the idea of this book, there are so many amazing quilts that I have seen on this blog hop.

    May 19, 2012

    I’m loving some of these quilts for me lol My dad might deserve a quilt though, as he’s just presented me with a ticket to the olympics and paid my travel and accommodation down there…

  12. Pam

    I also have found making a quilt for my husband challenging, and so haven’t yet done one. A book like this could be the solution.

  13. Mandy M

    Love all of these. Its so hard sometimes trying to find a pattern which would mix well with a guy, but I think you’ve filled the bill.

    I have made my husband and my FIL both quilts. I made them out of coffee themed fabric – because they are coffee snobs!

    THanks for the giveaway!

    Perfect timing! Great idea for a book and I could so use this book in my life right now…my son and 2 nephews are graduating this month. I don’t think they would mind a belated graduation gift if it was something as grand as a Guy Quilt. πŸ˜€

    I made my older son a quilt using terry Mangat’s Rio Grande line so that’s kinda cheating. It has rafting, hiking, biking, fishing stuff going on all things my guy loves. It’s a well loved quilt but like I said cheating. Made one for my younger son called “American Beauty”, which used red rose fabric, blacks a creams. I nuked the roses called it “Canadian Brawn” and thought myself clever. Daughters have a plethora of quilts. But my “date”, “the boyfriend”, father of my children, husband of many years????? Nada, zip, nuthin”….this book better do the trick. My mind is not getting more agile as I age and he’s wise to my ways. Thanks for the chance to win Faith.

    I have a husband and 3 sons so I would love to have a book to give me ideas for them all. I’m having a go at designing one for my youngest sons birthday next Saturday. I’m hoping he’ll like it. Thanks for the giveaway.

    I’ve been wanting to make a quilt for my brother for a while now & my experience has been frustrating – he likes the quilts I’ve made for other people but kept rejecting my ideas for him, saying that they were “too girly” or “too pretty”. This book looks like a godsend & the quilts are amazing & suitably masculine. Thanks for the chance to win.

  19. Sharon

    May 19, 2012

    With a husband and 2 fast growing sons I know this book would have perfect quilt patterns for them. I love the helix quilt, and as for the odd ball one, that would suit all 3 males in my family lol!

    I made my husband a quilt of wonky crosses using the Reunion fabric from sweetwater. He likes it alot, but isnt reallly wanting to “use” it. Its so cool, i may hang it up in our living room πŸ™‚

    Hi Faith,
    I’ve been making quilts for charities, and most of the quilts donated are ‘pretty’ ones. The organiser (Jan) is very grateful for everything that she receives, but she has said that a lot of the homeless people are men and boys, and she would love to have some quilts geared toward the males. I was given a huge amount of fabric by a lady who used to make her husbands’s shirts, so I have all this tartan flannelette – perfect for blokes quilts! Simple patterns such as Chinese Coins, rail fence, etc. are all suited to tartan (plaid) fabrics.

    I have not made a man quilt but love the inspiration I am getting from the sneak peaks from this book. Odd ball looks like a lot of fun!

  23. Nicole

    May 19, 2012

    I made a brown and black and beige turning twenty for my Dad that turned out very well. It was hard to part with! I’d love to make another manly quilt and that odd-ball looks great.

  24. Fran M

    May 19, 2012

    I love this!! Often I have wanted to make a quilt for a man but have felt quite stumped by floral fabrics and calicos. Duh. So I was thinking – should I make a quilt out of steel wool or something?
    Great ideas here. Love the quilts. Steel wool not necessary. what a relief.

  25. Char

    May 19, 2012

    LOVE that Odd Ball quilt which I could envision as a man quilt, baby quilt, kid quilt, etc. depending on the fabric. This looks like a great book, thanks for the giveaway. Fingers crossed!

  26. Kris

    May 19, 2012

    Thanks for the giveaway! I made a quilt for my husband before we were married. It was a queen size and I just kept it simple with greens and blues and a big rail pattern.

  27. Heidi

    May 19, 2012

    I have never made a quilt for just a man before. Would love to though! Never thought of doing it to be honest. This book would be just the thing to get me started. Thanks for the chance.

    May 19, 2012

    I could have done with this book when looking for a quilt to make for my daughters boyfriend. Luckily David Butler brought out his curious nature target pattern and I used that but now I want to make another……

    I’ve made quilts for grandsons with sports themes, pirate themes, repurposed denim…..but now that they’re growing up, it’s time for more sophistication. This book would be perfect.

  35. Jennie

    May 19, 2012

    I haven’t tried making a quilt or my husband… though I would like to. My recent quilt top was citrus colours with pink and He really likes it – yes – pink! The only time he seems to use quilts is when he is very hung over and feeling sorry for himself!

    I’m in the process of making a T-shirt quilt for my DH out of his running shirts. I’ m still at the prep stage ironing Pellon to the shirts which is mind numbingly boring. I keep stopping to do other projects that I find more enjoyable.

    I made a quilt for my boyfriend…I had to, really, because he gifted me a brand new Janome 6600 for Christmas!! He is a rugged individualist who lives life his way in a small post and beam home on 18 acres! So the quilt I made him was a traditional 9 patch using all types of small striped and plaid cottons set on the diagonal! Thanks for a chance to win this book – it looks fantastic!

  41. Rachel O.

    May 19, 2012

    Oh man, this book would be perfect. I have more guy friends than girl friends and never know what to make them for Christmas other than food. I NEED HELP!

    Saw the Odd Ball quilt and immediately thought of my son-in-law’s bald head. Perfect pattern for him.

  43. VickiT

    May 19, 2012

    I had to laugh when you talked about wanting to make a quilt for your husband and couldn’t settle on the right pattern. That’s exactly what I’ve done for the past couple of years myself.

    This book is one I must have considering that I have 4 grown sons and, of course, my husband I would like to make quilts for.

  44. Barb

    May 19, 2012

    Love that Hexi Quilt pattern – guys would love it! I have tried to make a quilt for my adult son, but he has visions of flowers and foofoo-iness trapped in his wee little head and always says, “No, thanks, Mom.” Maybe I will surprise him for Christmas and just make him one. I think he’d love the Hexi Quilt.

    HI there, the more I see ya’ll reviewing the book and the pics the more I want it! I’ve made a couple of man/teen quilts. One was a Dallas Cowboys throw and one was a twin size large zig zag. I need more ideas cause I have more men to make quilts for!!

    the ‘man quilt’ i made for my son is a rag quilt with both sides minky–one side brown, the other white. BORING! And really, at this point it’s not even soft anymore after so many washings. I need to make him one before he goes off to college! The Helix pattern is manly and interesting–I’d like to try making it!

  49. Andrea

    May 19, 2012

    I have never finished a quilt for my man. I bought fabric for one but I never even cut into it. Wow that is sad to admit. Maybe it is time! I just need a little inspiration. And time.

    The manly quilt I’ve made for my husband was very basic, and HE picked out the fabric!

    My husband wears (and collects) Hawaiian shirts so doing a quilt for him was easy…I used super large floral in a dark, saturated blue and purple (no white) and blues as the other colors – very successful….looks like a large Hawaiian shirt…

    I need this book! I am a single mom to a ‘boy’ who has a closet and roomful of alien, cowboy and little fishies quilts. Unfortunately for me, he’s getting too big for these novelty quilts and now wants something more grown up. I will still need to find a home for that frog fabric but I’m sure I’ll figure that one out on my own.

  57. Peggy A.

    May 19, 2012

    Was trying a man quilt using homespun but wasn’t loving it. Decided I would try Parson Gray’s Curious Nature line. This book would REALLY help.

  58. Ceil

    May 19, 2012

    I made a “man” quilt for my grandson with construction vehicle fabrics and a flannel backing. He loved it. The pattern was just rectangles, however, so it was only the fabric that gave it that manly look! Now that he’s older, I’d like to make another more challenging one for him and would love to win!

  59. Katie

    May 19, 2012

    I’m in desperate need of ideas for a man quilt! My best friend is trying to make one for her nephews and I’m struggling with patterns and color combinations that feel manly! Thanks so much for sharing!!

  60. Ethel

    May 19, 2012

    I’ve only made one quilt that was really a “guy” quilt — it was a brick design in plaids with dark green as the constant. I tied it rather than quilt — with a green and brick-red mix. It did end up looking rather manly. Gave it to my very ill brother who was in a nursing home. It disappeared shortly afterward — knowing him, someone probably said, “Nice quilt.” And he said, “You like it? Take it.” Things never mattered to him as much as people did. I’m hoping the quilt has found a good home with someone who remembers my brother as fondly as we do.

    I should add β€” LOVE this book. If I don’t win one, I’m definitely buying it. Oddball is my favorite, too.

  61. Margaret

    May 19, 2012

    I made quilts for four guys last year. Two of them used an outdoors fabric line and a panel with moose. The other two were two shades of blue. Not very imaginative or particularly pretty/handsome but they were ok. Would love to win this book. It is on my Amazon wish list.

    My husband has been after me to make him a quilt for so long, that I think he’d settle for pink appliqued flowers at this point.

    I can’t wait to see what you make for your guy!!! I made my husband an Edmonton Oilers (his favorite hockey team) quilt. It was suppose to be a couch quilt but it actually fits a queen size bed!! Thanks for the chance to win!!!

    May 19, 2012

    I did make my son a quilt but the colors he chose weren’t ‘manly’ at all!
    He likes the artist Louise Bourgeois and asked for an interpretation of one of her quilts. It really turned out nice! It’s a really light pink, bright yellow and cream ~ all linen. He’s an art student, really into color and strong in his manliness!

  67. Sharon T

    I’ve made several “man” quilts for my grandsons using clear colors and traditional designs similar to what Red Pepper does. Like you, I love Odd Ball!

    May 19, 2012

    I haven’t seen that helix quilt yet. It is AWESOME! I might actually have to make it for myself…
    I’ve never made a quilt exclusively for a guy, although I always thought Elizabeth Hartman’s Tokyo Subway Map quilt would be perfect for my traffic engineer husband who took me to Hong Kong a few years ago… But like your husband, he nixed that idea. I think he really just didn’t want me buying any more fabric! ;). I’ll get him someday.

    The first man quilt I made was a double sized rainbow coloured quilt for my son going to university, he still has it on his bed 8 years later. I then made another quilt again using 4 inch squares in black and White, my son and his wife decorated their bedroom in black and White! Since then I have used old blue checked shirts, supplemented from Kim Porter, Worn and washed, making one for my husband and daughters partner. My husband has his on his boat, to keep him warm at night! Oh I nearly forgot a red, black and White quilt for my nephew, it was a black and White batik charm pack.

    Best “young” man quilt I made was “A pool of water”. All fabrics blended, blues, aquas, greens and teals. For a friend of my son’s who is a big water polo player. Gave it as a college going away gift. Thanks for having a giveaway.

    May 19, 2012

    I just made a quilt for my nephew who just graduated from college with an Ag degree of old jeans (cut into actual quilting squares), flannel shirts from flannel shirts from his farmer/rancher dad and grandpa, one of his own, and even one from my dad who died 15 years ago. For sashing I used the colors of the university. Backed it with fleece (and just a flannel batting). It is one heavy quilt, more traditional than my usual, but quite beautiful.

    I totally agree, man quilts are the hardest to get ideas for. So many fabric lines are not geared towards the male ego. Not many men want to claim a quilt covered in floral patterns! I have made two man quilts in the last couple of years. One recently for a high school graduation gift. I used David Butler’s Parson Gray Curious Nature. I purchased a pattern off Etsy called Big and Tall. I love this line and hope he soon comes out with many more options. You can copy and paste the following into your browser to see my Curious Nature quilt:

    The other man quilt I made was for my FIL. I used Jenean Morrison’s Moondance and made up my pattern as I went along. You can copy and past the following into your browser to see it:

    This would be a fab book to have! I’ve had a run on male quilts this year, one for my dad turning 70 and 2 nephews turning 18! They are definitely harder to make for. Thank heavens for wonderful inspiration in blogland! Jxo

    This past Christmas I made a Harley-Davidson themed quilt for my brother in-law. It was for my sister too, but was mostly his request. I used a simple scrappy pattern and chose fabrics that were not flowery or feminine. It was a big hit!

    It took a long time for me to make a quilt for my husband. One of the problems was that he wanted a Mariner’s Compass quilt. Yikes! I never made such a complicated quilt and I was intimidated. I even told him that he needed to take me to Paducah to buy the fabrics and that he had to pick them out thinking he wouldn’t be up for that. Not! So off we went. Starting that quilt was the reason I started blogging, to kind of mark my progress. It is now on the header of my blog!

    Since then, I also made my Happy Camper quilt for a very dear friend.

    Yep, I have done a man quilt: 70 circles and I believe it is loved and in use! But it is nowhere near the awesoem quilts in this book… Thanks for a chance – and Oddball would be my first choice, too

    I’ve just made my brother a quilt in a fence rail- four strips, two outer ones with orange marbly fabric and the two inside strips quite scrappy with different types of Batiks in purples, greens, blues and oranges. I edged it with a khaki fabric that pulled the whole thing together.

    Overall it’s very graphic and gives an orange feel- his favourite colour is orange, so I hope the colours travel well from a grey London to a very sunny South Africa! He hasn’t seen it yet…

    I think this book looks wonderful- would love to make something for my husband (who loves looking at different quilts) from it.

    Love your blog!

    Man quilts are always tricky. I try to start with fabrics and keep it simple – fabrics that have texture instead of a recognizable print, not too many colours – and then I pick a design, also simple, not too many curves or fancy decorative touches. Neutrals and darker colours, straight lines, and nothing girly! My dad loved the one I made for him for Christmas.

    Thanks for the great giveaway! The only ‘guy’ quilts I have made are for my three boys, and they a fairly easy to sew for, since they like novelty prints. I’ve made a poison arrow frog quilt, cowboy quilt, and hungry catterpillar quilt for them.

    I made one quilt for our boy when he left for college. MY solution to making it a ‘man’ quilt: use camo! LOL. I’ve fallen in love with the quilts I’ve seen from this book. In fact, switchback just might make its way to our bed! Thank you for the opportunity to put my name in the hat!

    LOVE the preppy guy quilt. my husband is FAR from preppy…he leans more toward hippie, but he wears argyle socks to work everyday, so this would fit him well!

    I made a quilt for my teenage son to take to university. It was one of the first quilts I have made and it is very busy but colourful. I used lots of blues, greens and black. I’m going to make him another one for his bed at home but I think I’ll use solids only and make it much plainer.Thank you for the chance to win the book. It looks like it will be a great source of inspiration!

    I would love to make a manly quilt for some of the wonderful men in my life. My hubs who puts up with the scraps and mess. My brother who loves to cuddle up with quilts. My dad the ever present & looking out for you guy. And for the cutie boy on the way – he will get all the manly men quilts he wants!

    I would love this book!! I started to make Union Jack blocks for my husband a few days before his birthday, foolishly thinking I would have whole quilt top of these amazing blocks for him but in the end I made one and presented that to him promising to complete it…it is now nearly the end of May – he’s never gonna get that quilt, is he?? Poor guy.

    My very first quilt was for my darling deary. It was a challenge to make a man quilt. Choosing the right fabrics and all. No florals, modern, and the right colors. Oh gosh, thats a tough one. I allowed a little bit of input from my main squeeze, but then just went with my own gut feelings. Here is a link to my hubby’s quilt: http://modernamish.blogspot.com/2011/03/my-1st-quilt_01.html
    It turns out, he loves it, but wishes it were longer so that it would reach form his neck to toes. Maybe next time:D

    Well, I have attempted this man qulit thing a few times actually and everytime I am not completely satisfied. Well I lied, I made one for my dad and it was perfect. But I was refering to making one for my hubby. I have made about five different blankets for him and I feel that I am jinxed because they all have turned out not so perfectly awesome. I think it is because everytime I was trying too hard. I need to not care so much but he is super special and I wanted them to be perfect πŸ™‚ Thanks for the giveaway πŸ™‚

  118. Sherri

    My “man quilt” was all flannel squares- dark colors, not a flower or pastel in sight, collected a couple of summers ago on a tour of the Western US. Lots to choose from across the quilt stores of Utah, Montana, Colorado, Arizona, and New Mexico!

    I made my Father-in-Law a family tree quilt, with the whole family on it. I now have a couple more babies to add though, need to get it back to him.

    I love Odd Ball, that is just the sort of thing my hubby would like. We met studying Industrial Design at University, and he is very much a minimalist.

    I’ve made “guy” quilts for my husband and my son in law. They were great and loved what I’d made. I’ve also made some for my grand son’s, of course, if Grandma made it, they loved them.

    May 19, 2012

    My man loves the quilt I made him for Christmas: a string quilt in greens and blues with a red-orange tying it all together that I straight-line quilted. Then again, he loves all the quilts I make, whether or not they’re for him. He’s sweet to me.

  152. Kimberly P.

    May 19, 2012

    Yay!! I unfortunately had the same thing happen at my house. Every idea I came up with, my husband grimaced at. So his ‘man’ quilt has been put on the back burner. I agree, man quilts are hard!!

  153. Sara

    I’m a bit of a control freak and really only make quilts for myself – whether they go to other people or not. What’s that saying “love me, love my quilt?”

  156. Jill

    May 20, 2012

    Maybe if I made him a quilt he wouldn’t complain so much about how much I spend on quilting ;).

  157. Laura G

    May 20, 2012

    Yes, I made a man quilt for my 89 year Dad. I made him a quit because after I made a quilt for my Mom, he said to her that he hoped I would make a quilt for him -although he never told me that directly because he would never want me to think I had to make him a quilt, In any event, I made him a blue flannel quilt for Christmas and he loved it. He took it up with him to their bedroom and now he uses it every day and really loves it. That makes me very happy because he has always been very good to me and it was nice to make something that he really loves, thank you for the contest.

  158. Robyn

    May 20, 2012

    I have a 12 year old son who would love for me to make him a “Man ” quilt. Glad someone has designed some quilts for our men. Will have to find the book (if I don’t win one) and see what else Emily has designed.

  159. Kristin H

    May 20, 2012

    I love the odd ball quilt! I made a quilt for my dad for Christmas…mostly solid with just a bit of print fabric tossed in. It was inspired by the fact that I was given some fabric that just screamed “dad” in a kind of never-quite-left-the-seventies sort of way.

  160. Margaret

    May 20, 2012

    What a marvelous book! All of Emily’s other designs are wonderful and I love John Q Adams’ designs as well, so I’m excited to get my hands on this book. If I don’t win a copy, I will surely be purchasing one! πŸ™‚ Thanks so much for the giveaway opportunity.

    May 20, 2012

    While there is no man in my life currently, I did make a georgeous grey and black and white quilt for a fella a few years back for Christmas. When I presented it to him I told him its name, Stars over Hermosa (where he was living and I was visiting). He promptly said, “no, I think its name is Stars over the Black Hills”. Go figure that I’m not seeing a man that would change the name of a quilt given to him!

    I’m making quilts for all the “girls” in my family, but feel like the “boys” are left out. I’m not even sure they’d appreciate a quilt, but I’d love to make some for them, anyway. I found a really cute All Star Sneaker pattern in the latest Quiltmaker magazine, but it’s paper pieced, and looks difficult. The quilts in this book look masculine but doable. I love the Odd Ball pattern!

  169. Kim T

    May 20, 2012

    I would love to try some of these patterns in this book. I just made a quilt for my brother, but it took me quite a while to find a pattern and fabric that seemed to work for a manly quilt.

  170. elena

    May 20, 2012

    My hubby is asking me to make him a quilt for the sofa. I’m always delaying the start of this project because I’m lack of ideas. I can easily project quilts for babys o or girls, but for adult men I have no idea ;D.
    So I will keep my fingers crossed to grab this wonderful book.
    Thank you so much for this chance to win πŸ™‚

    May 20, 2012

    I am in the process of finishing up a man quilt. Its car themed (the guy is a mechanic). I used t-shirts with the Ducati and Viper logos on it and made a checkered flag in the center, then surrounded it with a blue solid and a black and white newsprint featuring vintage car adds. This was difficult for me, I just couldn’t get into it. It’s just not pretty!!

  173. Jenn

    May 20, 2012

    The last quilt I made was actually a “man quilt”. Solids in “man colors” really set it apart from my typical quilts.

  175. Jaime

    May 20, 2012

    I have produced two quilts for men. I made a jean quilt that was well received and another that I fear will never be truly loved. I would love love love a copy of this book as I have seen at least four designs I would like to make (one that I would like to make for myself! I hope that isn’t odd, but I think the Helix pattern is just fantastic) and I haven’t even been able to see a copy yet. Anyway, pick me please!

  176. Marcelle

    May 20, 2012

    I think this is just the book I’ve been waiting for! Have been looking for good man quilts for the longest time so can’t wait to see all the patterns. My husbands already keen on those giant diamonds!

    May 20, 2012

    I made a quilt for my boyfriend…blue, green and red, all dark and toned down. Some patterned, some plain. Then I embroidered a few attributes of who he is on some of the solid greens. He loved it and started using it right away. Unfortunately we found that it’s too hot here for the thick batting and flannel that I used. :/ we’re married now so he doesn’t use it anymore, but maybe I’ll hang it on the wall some day…

    I have the back fabric for a quilt for my man, I bought it in Sedona on a vacation this past fall. My husband picked it out and some great fat quarters he liked but I am struggling to come up with a design. I was thinking lone star but I am currently working on a baby quilt lone star and not sure I am up to a queen size in this challenging pattern! Guys quilts ARE hard! I promise to put this book to good use if I happen to luck out and win it! πŸ™‚

    I made a ‘man-quilt’ for my son with blue, green, and gray chevrons. Then I made another one for my husband with some VW busses, and lots of red, blue, yellow, gray, and orange. Turns out my husband likes the chevrons more, so I guess I’ll make him another one similar to my sons!
    Thanks for this giveaway!

  196. Sel

    May 21, 2012

    I’ve never yet tried to make a quilt specifically for a guy – usually I make them for couples. I suppose my Modern Rail Fence could qualify as a ‘guy’ quilt, as well as both Double Irish Chains I’ve made?

    I love the spiral one – only made a few quilts and they’ve all been pretty ‘girly’ but the manly colour ways are great.

    I’ve made quilts for my dad and brother-in-law so far — one was a drunkards’ path quilt, and the other was the big owl from Dare to be Square. πŸ™‚ I just love the patterns in this book; thanks for the chance to win!

    I’ve made a number of quilts for guys. I try making them with larger blocks and avoid the usual, pink and flowery fabric. I’ve used a lot of Japanese men’s Yukata fabric that has bold prints and tends to the blue, grey, green. The new books looks great lots of fun quilts that really could be used for anyone, lots of fun patterns!

    I did make a quilt for my husband’s and my bed as a gift to my husband. It is not particularly manly, but not too girly either, and I think he likes it. (Well, he’d better — it was the first quilt I made and it is Queen sized… and I quilted it myself on my very small sewing machine!!!). That said, it would be fun to make him one that is a little more geared towards him, style-wise, now that I know a little bit more about what I’m doing!

    I made my husband a ‘man quilt’ a few Christmasses ago!! It is made from dark coloured flannels, all very subdued and of course manly!! But it is huge…. and consequently very heavy!! So it stays folded up most of the time, except when the dog tries to make a bed on it! I suppose I really do need a new quilt for my sweetheart…..so please include me in your giveaway!!

    I have never made a man quilt, but I have 4 boyz between 16 and 24, thinking maybe I should. Not sure they are ready for a full out log cabin being as they are all kinda hip.lol
    Thanks for the chance!

    I’ve never yet made a man-quilt but I’ve been saving my husband’s dress shirts as he wears them out for about a decade now, thinking one day they’d make a great quilt. I think I have about enough material to make a kind size quilt, (including backing!) and I’m hoping to start it this year. I love the Helix pattern and could see making it with his shirts: background all his solids and the stripe out of all his checked shirts.

    I’m about to get started on my first man quilt. His focus fabric of choice? The whales from Ann Kelle’s Urban Zoologie. It should be interesting.

    I bought some plaid flannels for a guy quilt and plan on doing large blocks of each fabric – we’ll see how it comes out! Thanks!

    Yes I have a made several guy quilts back in the day. Mostly plaids for a cozy look. Thanks

    All of these quilts look amazing. I’ve got lots of guys in my family, so I’d make good use of it for sure! Thanks for sharing!

    My family is all guys, so I need this book! I am making a quilt for my dad out of fishing and outdoorsy prints. It is alternating snowball and nine patch blocks. I hope he likes it!

    I made a “man-quilt” for my son-in-law who is in the Navy. He is an avid golfer and really missed those golf courses when he was on deployment. So I made him a simple block quilt using a green flannel with a golf motif, alternating with recycled denin pieces I collected. When he got home, my daughter gave it to him and he was thrilled. Now he has his own snuggle quilt and doesn’t make my daughter share her “sock monkey” quilt. Peace in the family!

    I made my dad a flannel “man quilt” for Christmas this year. I don’t think it was very manly though. I used a combination of Grinch flannel and red/green plaid flannel in various rectangle shapes. I think my parents only put the quilt out when I come to visit. πŸ™‚

    Ooh, count me in!

    My husband’s man quilt is in progress. The top is done and I’m so psyched that it turned out as I imagined it. Now I need to actually make a back and decide how to quilt it…

    I would love to have that book — husband, two sons, three grandsons probably each need a quilt — i’m guessing.

  225. Tracie

    I’d really love to attempt my first “man” quilt as a Father’s Day gift this year, so the book would be great timing. Thanks for the giveaway opportunity!

    Thanks for the chance to win this book! I would love to make a quilt for my 17 year old son. I do not want to make a traditional block, using dark colors. I want it to look hip and cool, not old-fashioned! I have made quilts for men, using traditional patterns, but with solid colors. They look nice, but these are so much fun!

    I’ve made a few “man quilts” before but none are as cool as the ones I’ve seen in this book! Thanks for the opportunity to win!=)

    This is a great idea. My quilts are mainly girly or flowery and I would love some new ideas for my boys.
