    I need suggestions. My DH loves the double wedding ring pattern. I would love to make him a quilt for Christmas but am stuck on the fabrics. What colors would you suggest. DH doesn't have a favorite color. I would like it to be manly but not too much so. What do you think?

    How about blues and browns or maybe plaids?

    I used prints in blues and browns for a star sampler that I am making for my DH and he loves it. The prints have some flowers on them as well as some being just tonal prints, but the overall look isn't feminine at all. Also, someone on here was making a quilt w/just plaid fabrics and I thought that it looked great for a guy quilt.

    You could use geometrics and swirls, etc. Stay away from the florals and you will have a "manly" quilt. Maybe use browns, blues, greens, reds, those are all manly colors the men in my life like. :D

    I think anything not floral or pink and purple would be great!

    Really?? I was kind of surprised at the comment about florals not being manly. I went back and checked a few of the posts about quilts men on this board have made for themselves and as gifts for other men and some have a few floral fabrics in the quilts. Just my opinion, but really??
