Yep. That'll be manly! Nice choice!

A simple manly pattern is a dimensional bow tie out of 5 inch squares. They go together quickly and can be arranged in various patterns. I recently made blocks from a flannel precut 5 inch pieces that look like wool but are flannel. I bought a dark flannel from the same fabric lines for the setting strips and backing. It is very warm and manly looking but easy and looks impressive.
I have used patterns similar to that for my grandsons.
Oh I really like that one!!

thanks for the link. bought the pattern. looking forward to getting it. I love working with strips.
Like it very much. Can totally see this in many different colors for anyone. Even for newborn babies!
Go forth and sew!
Now, that would make a lovely masculine quilt.
I have made a rail fence quilt in blacks and white with red sashings and it looked very dramatic.
