Geared for Guys!

So, have you ever tried to make a quilt for a man? Not a boy—a full-grown, adult man. It isn't an easy task, is it? Even the most modern fabric collections often have a bit of a feminine bent. And many quilt patterns just tend to be too intricate for male sensibilities. I know my husband is a 100% no-frills, no-flowers, keep-it-simple kind of guy. That's the worst kind to make a quilt for, let me tell you! LOL.

Enter Emily Herrick's new "Geared for Guys," an e-book featuring 8 quilt patterns specifically for guys like my hubs. What a fantastic idea for a book! And I'm excited to be a part of her 30 Days, 30 Blogs, 30 Books tour to give you the scoop on this new release.

You probably know Emily as the young-and-not-at-all-crazy lady behind Crazy Old Ladies, and the designer of some fabulous (and man-centric) fabric lines like Going Coastal and Hall of Fame. In fact, I just made my Scrappy Triangles quilt for my dad out of Going Coastal. But Emily is also an amazing quilter and quilt designer (you can check out her blog here).

Geared for Guys is loaded with great quilt patterns, but one of my favorites is Ivy League.  It's a classic guy design, and Emily does a great job with the pattern, showing you how to cut and piece the diamonds with ease.

I also love Oddball, with its neutral background and one bright orange circle. So fun! But yet still within the confines of manliness. : )

The Geared for Guys e-book is available as a PDF download for $14.95 from Emily's Etsy shop (can't beat $14.95 for 8 patterns, right?). But guess what—I'm giving away one free copy of Geared for Guys right here! Just leave a comment below telling me what guy you would like to make a quilt for, or what guy you have made a quilt for in the past, or your favorite manly fabric collection. The giveaway is open through Sunday and I'll draw a winner on Monday morning. And go visit Julie of Jaybird Quilts tomorrow for another chance to win a copy of Geared for Guys!


This giveaway is NOW CLOSED.

Lee, I'm a dork and didn't know how to do this entry thing...so I said I answered the question when I hadn't typed anything. Sorry!!

Heidi Staples said...

I took a closer look at Curious Nature last night online. I think that's about as manly as fabric can get from what I've seen...great collection!

Scenic Pit Stops said...

I did the same thing as Angela, above! Count me a dork, too! :) But, if you are curious, I WANT to make a quilt for my son, poor kid has a queen size bed with a crib size blanket on it! Awkward!

Irina said...

I'd like to try an make a quilt for my husband... hope I could get some ideas from this book! thanks for the chance!

Anne said...

Oh wow, those are excellent! I would love to try to make a quilt that my boyfriend would enjoy!

Anita said...

I have lots of guys in my life :) I'd either make one for my husband, one of my sons or my dad! Thanks for the chance to win :)

Dawn said...

I would luv to make a quilt for my husband. For years my husband has watched me make quilt after quilt and give 98% of them away. I'd like to give him one.

Janet said...

I made a quilted wall hanging for my son-in-law and a quilt for my grandson. I really want to make a quilt for my DH though. Thanks for a chance to win.

Pieceworker said...

I want to make a quilt for my 13-year-old son. He's not quite a man, but this book looks like it would have some great ideas for him.

Jenelle said...

I would love to make a quilt for my husband. Recently one of my blogging friends, Annabella at Life's Rich Pattern, made one for her husband in Curious Nature and I just love how the colors, prints, and pattern work together to be masculine, but still interesting to look at (and sew!).

Cheers

Live a Colorful Life said...

I need to make a quilt for my adorable 6-month-old grandson and haven't a clue what to make. How exciting that you are part of this project. Wow, Oddball is a great quilt--it's probably that orange circle that completely sold me...

lori said...

Love the title of the book and I just showed "oddball" to my husband and he said that's GREAT! I've made my son a modern quilt using kona cottons and another modern quilt using solid flannels

Karrie S said...

I love the gray quilt with the orange circle!! I want to make that (when I get my hands on a copy) for my deserving boyfriend. THanks for the chance to win :) I published your button on my blog :) I just figured out how to do it, so I'm posting all my favorite blog sites, so I can always remember to see them!

niveas said...

It's a very good idea to write a book with quilts for biiig boys ;) My like to get a plus quilt from me (like that I made for good friends: http://madebyniveas.blogspot.com/2012/03/plus-quilt.html). And (psst) don't tell him, but I've started one in his favourite color - blue ;)

Tank you for the chance!

Celtic Thistle said...

With a husband and three sons I have plenty of guys to make quilts for, any one of them would love the Oddball quilt so I think that might have to go on my to-do list. Definitely Curious Nature too for the fabrics. Great giveaway, thanks!

CJ said...

I'd love to win this book! I have made two duvet covers for my college aged son (his request so that he can put his down comforter inside) but I would love to make a manly quilt for him for his junior year.

Katy Cameron said...

Oh cool, love the oddball one! I made my dad a redwork embroidery hanging of his 4 favourite pastimes for Christmas (much to the skepticism of my male colleagues) and he loved it, it was totally manly in the end with its red check border and sashing.

Anonymous said...

I am due to make another quilt for my husband, He uses a quilt to cover the recliner chair to protect from cat scratches, this new book looks very inspiring.

Kristie said...

Looks like a cool book :). I have yet to make a quilt for my hubby, so that would be my guy!

Annabella said...

What a great idea and beautiful quilts, which I would love just as much as my man. I`ve just made my first man quilt top for hubby using Curious Nature - I think he`s going to love it.

Audrey said...

My two daughters and my mom get everything. My poor husband, who actually gets excited when new fabric arrives, has yet a quilt to call his own.

Sue Bone said...

I'd make it for my 16 year old son who is due to go to defence sixth form college in September. Especially as we've just found out the flights from our island to the nearest airport to the college are being stopped in august.

Jane said...

I'm making a guy quilt right now. Not sure if it will be for my hubby or one of my step-sons. I'll decide if/when I finish it.

bevkimmel said...

I am planning on making a quilt for my son as a Christmas present, but haven't been able to decide on a pattern. sounds like this book would be perfect!

Well, my husband wants me to make about every other quilt for him (he thinks it's unfair that I make them for other people instead) - so some great quilt ideas to make for him would be really fun!

Meg said...

I'd love to make a quilt for either my dad or my brother (both non-frilly types of men).

Mareenchen said...

I'd love to make a quilt for my fiancé one day. At the moment I'm agonizing about the design for the quilt I plan on making for our wedding, how to make it acceptable for both of us and fitting for our bedroom. Wouldn't mind to have "manly" patterns to choose from once I decide to make him his own quilt for Christmas or his birthday or some such occasion. :)

Michelle said...

i need to make a quilt for my hubby :)

kari said...

I would love this, if only to finish by father's day!!!

Suzanne said...

I have two young adult sons who have never received a quilt from me because I just can't figure out what design and fabric would be appropriate (no pinks, purples, pales, flowers, etc., etc) so this would be a great help

Paskiaq said...

I would make a quilt for each of the men in my lift..dad, husband, son! :)

dudrear said...

my brother just moved in to a house and is getting settled - i would love some pattern ideas to make him a quilt for his new place.

Susan said...

As I haven't been quilting for that long, only one of three men I live with (DH + 2 DS) have received a quilt...have orders from the other two. This book looks like it would be a great help to get me going on those orders. Thank you for the opportunity!

Kathy P said...

I have plans to make a quilt for my hubby, after all these years of quilting for everyone else, I figured it was time to make one for him. I'd love to take a look at this "man quilt" book, so I hope I win! Thanks for the chance!

Leslie said...

I really need this book! (who doesn't huh?!!) I have a husband AND an 18 year old this is graduating this month! I keep wanting to start a quilt for one of his graduation gifts but keep getting stumped, this book sounds just like what I need!
thanks for the chance!

Kelly O. said...

I'd like to make a quilt for my hubby but first I think my brother needs one. I have made quilts for my boys and as they are getting older I think I'm going to have to go more manly not cutesie!

Patti said...

Looks like a fantastic book! My godson is (finally) moving out on his own, so I think a manly quilt would be welcome. Thanks for the chance to win this book.

Naomi said...

My husband & two sons would appreciate some manly quilts!

Katie B. said...

I'm ashamed to say I haven't made a quilt for my husband, and I really should. I let him borrow "my" quilts, so that should count for something, right?
:)

kathy said...

Living in a house with ALL males (even the dog), I would love to win this book! I would like to make a quilt for my husband, and I hope to give one to each of my sons as they go off to college. Luckily I have a few years before that happens!

knottygnome said...

i really like the oddball quilt. i've made quilts for my dad, my brother, and my husband's brother. i should really make one for my husband soon.

Thanks for the giveaway!

Leslie said...

I am making a quilt for my adult son with the Going Coastal fabrics....love them. I sure wouild love to win this ebook. Thanks

I need to make another quilt for my husband. He and the dogs lay on one on the couch and the dogs' toenails have put holes in it!

Becky M said...

I think going coastal is my favorite manly line. I love the madras plaid in it'

Gina said...

I'm making a denim quilt for my young sons right now. (one for each of them)I'm making it from their jeans. I've not made a quilt for my husband but would like too! I love Oddball. I was thinking instead of Orange I would use Red to represent the Arkansas Razorbacks. Or even use logo fabric for that circle!

tara said...

As the mother of 3 girls i dont often get to make guy quilts. I would love to make some more masculine quilts for our foster Care group.

First quilt would be for my son who is going to college in the fall. Second would be for Morgan, my new man.

This is such a fantastic idea for a book and I LOVE Going Coastal - can't wait for her new line. I'd like to make quilt for my dad and I have a bevy of nephews, too.

I'd love to make a quilt for my hubby - this book would be perfect! Thanks for the chance to win! :)

MC said...

I made a quilt for my hubby and finding manly fabrics seriously wasn't easy! In the end I went with a mix of music themed fabrics and some black and red. I think it looks pretty awesome!

Lyanna L. said...

I made my husband a quilt using greens and blues and backed it in brown flannel. It is quite snuggly. In fact I might have been known to steal it on occasion. So perhaps I need to make him another one he has one I don't steal. =)

Thanks for the chance to win this fun book.

C said...

I love the idea for this book. I have a husband and three grown sons, so any ideas for quilts will be great. My brother-in-law has also been hinting that he'd like a quilt. When I have made quilts in the past, I've usually used solid fabrics, since none of the guys like flowery fabrics.

I made a quilt for my husband and used coffee-themed fabrics, which worked out nicely. Right now I'm working on a blue/green sea themed quilt for a new baby boy, and a red/orange "boy things" quilt for a 6yo boy. :)

Kathy H said...

I have made quilts for my son and my nephew and now am getting ready to make another one for my son's graduation.

A.J. Dub. said...

I have made quilts for my Dad and my Husband and have one in the works for my youngest boy.

knittingtheblues said...

I've been looking for the right quilt to make for my husband for our 25th anniversary. Being a seamstress and a knitter and wife of a guy who doesn't wear sweaters and is not into anything too feminine, I've only made him socks (which he totally loves!). I'd love to find the right quilt for him to throw on the back of his chair and be there for cool nights.

Poppyprint said...

My Dad's turning 70 this month and gasp, I haven't made a gift yet! It might be a push to get a quilt done, but I'd love to make him one. He's a certified lay-z-boy expert and I'm sure he could use a quilt!

Leigh Anne said...

Love that circle quilt and would definitely be making one for my Dad!

B Greene said...

I would like to make a quilt for my oldest son who just finished his second year of college. I would like to make him a quilt in the very manly colors of his school - red, black and white. Thanks for the chance to win!

I made Plain Spoken for my son. He is still a boy, but wanted something grown up.

Kristin said...

I need to make something for my husby. Thanks for the chance on the e-book.

Becky said...

We have mostly males in our family. I'm onto making quilts for my nephews. Thanks for the giveaway!

Kira said...

I will be making one for the man in my life. He didn't like the last one I did. Now it sits in the UF pile. Maybe forever.

Stacey Napier said...

I made this "man" quilt for my husband last year - we all love it and use it on the couch nightly. He even picked out these very manly batiks. I picked a super thin batting because, just like a man, he is always hot :)

I would love to make a quilt for my husband, as I'm rarely willing to share one I made for myself!

Cecilia said...

My son has asked for a quilt a bunch of times. And he does not like scrappy quilts.

stephmabry said...

Love the modern look! I definitely want to make a quilt just for my husband - I have the goal of replacing all store-bought blankets in our house with homemade quilts by the time winter comes back around, and I definitely need one for him, too! Thanks for the chance :)

Alli said...

That Oddball quilt is awesome!

I've made quilts for my dad and brother-in-law so far. One was a drunkards' path quilt, and the other was a big owl (cause he likes eagles, and owls are the eagles of the night... hehehe).

Thanks for the chance to win! :)

My brother-in-law is the next man on my quilt making list. I could've used this when sewing my dad's. I had to come up with my own pattern, which worked well, but it would be nice to have options. :-)

Thanks!

Hi i'd make a quilt for my dad in curious nature! Thanks!

Caryn said...

My husband would LOVE oddball. Orange is his favorite color and he lines things that are "off" and a little geeky! My uncle would also love ivy league in his alma maters colors. There are so many great patterns here. Thanks for the chance to win a copy.

Nancy Sue said...

My father is next in line for his quilt. I'm going to use some Fix It fabric line and backing fabric that looks like woodwork. 80 degree weather, and he'd use a blanket, so I definately need to "get er done" before fall :)

Jana said...

I made the quilt for my husband - it was double irish chains. I used black solid and white and grey prints from Cecilia lines, all from Ikea. My husband is dead unfortunatelly, but this quilt is in use - with our son.

Malerie said...

my nephew!

Katarina said...

Well, until now I only made one quilt for my little guy but with these patterns I'd surely make a quilt for my husband :)

Francis Paul said...

I haven't made a guy quilt yet but maybe that's because I haven't had a great guy pattern until now :-)

Diane said...

I made a lap/nap quilt for my husband for Xmas last year out of Marcia Derse fabrics. I chose colors somewhat darker than I would choose for myself. It turned out beautifully and he loved it. Thanks for the chance to win a book about guy quilts. I've also made quilts for two of my three sons!

CathyK said...

I have made a quilt for my husband, dad, and my son, but I need to make one for my brother and brother-in-law, so I would love ideas! Thank you for the chance at the giveaway!

My favorite "guy" fabric line is Curious Nature. It's the same fabric line used in the cover quilt on the book.

lucifen said...

The guy I would like to make a quilt for is my husband, the one who said, "how many years have you been quilting and why do we not have a quilt to put on our bed?!"

I'm nearly finished with a quilt for my 18 year old son. He's off to college in the fall so I'm making it in the University of Montana colors. Thank goodness they're dark red, black and silvery grey. It's turning out quite nice. Not sure I want him to take it away. Oh well.

Jenn said...

I do love the Oddball pattern. And since I just am about finished with my bf's quilt I would probably make one as a wedding present for our friends. It may be "for guys" but I think it's a great modern quilt!

Quilter In Paradise said...

Oh, I need a book for guy quilts so bad! My husband doesn't understand why I love them so much, so I need something just for him, then maybe he will understand.

I'm going to be making a quilt for my almost senior son to take to college. We've found some great fabric - greyish blue, kind of an orange tan, light and dark greys but coming up with a pattern has been tough! I wish I'd thought of this topic for a book!

Barbie Mills said...

My husband is a drafter-turned mechanical engineer, and he loves to design his own quilts. His are often somewhat complicated, even though he says they are easy. He has only finished one quilt so far, and has one in progress and several in his head or on paper. I think he'd like this book too.

Angie said...

I would love to use this book to make a quilt for my husband!

Jodi - usairdoll said...

What a neat idea for a book! How clever. The two quilts I made recently for guys were for actually little guys. Two baby quilts, one for my grandson and one for my DH's nephew's son. I'd love to make a quilt for my DH and my DS. I know that they each would love a masculine quilt.

Thank you for a great giveaway and a chance to win.

Jill said...

My husband finally found what he considers to be the perfect weight and quilt size. Now he wants it in a manly design. I think I could do it with the help of this book.

Anonymous said...

The last manly quilt I made was for husband - started when we married and finished two years later. A 6'x6' quilt, drunkards path, hand pieced 6" blocks. I called it "2 down 23 to" as he probably won't get another one until our 25th wedding anniversary!!

♥Duff said...

I need to make a quilt for my son to take to college. I'd like to use the Curious Nature line--I think it's just dreamy and manly all in one! Now for the pattern--I'd love to get a peek at all the quilts in Geared for Guys!! ha! thanks!

Claire Jain said...

This book sounds awesome :-) I can't wait to check it out! Thanks for the chance to win a copy.

Lee Ann said...

My husband welds, so his jeans wear out very quickly in the front, but are still good in the back. We saved his work jeans for about a year or so and then I made a queen size quilt using HSTs to create a blue jeans zig zag. Backed with red fleece....heavy as anything... perfect in the winter. Thanks for the chance to win Emily's book. It looks fascinating!

Can I make a quilt that looks just like one of yours? Of course! You don't need my permission for that. But remember, it's polite (and helpful to others) to credit your source of inspiration.

Can I share one of your photos on my blog or website? Probably! But please contact me for permission first. Use of my photos for commercial purposes is prohibited.

Can I pin your photos to Pinterest? Yes, please do! I love Pinterest!

Can I sell individual items made from your tutorials or patterns? Yes! But please don't open a factory and start churning out hundreds of them. : ) And please do not reproduce or sell the patterns or tutorials themselves. Thank you!
