    masculine quilt

    Trying to find a simple yet masculine type quilt pattern. I am not expanding very fast in the pattern area but saw one on google that brought me here but now signed in can't find it. Was green and browns real pretty. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks,

    I did one for my son - a Disappearing 9 patch - in greens, teals and browns. This is the photo before I did the binding, just used a chocolate brown for that. Name:  nicks9patch.jpg

    Using any simple pattern will work. The D9P is a really very good example of a simple pattern. I just finished a pattern called Yellow Brick Road that was also very simple to make especially if you like scrappy. I believe that is will be the use or selection of your fabrics that will give a quilt a masculine touch to it. PLAIDS are great too!! Good Luck !!!

    The thing about a quilt being "masculine" or "feminine" depends on the fabric way more than it does on the pattern.

    That said, DP9 has become my latest favorite pattern. It would be great for your purpose. But then so are Jacob's Ladder, assorted Star patterns......oh the list is long. Just leave off the ruffles and you're golden. lol

    I also think a log cabin pattern, again predicated on more 'male' fabric choices lends itself to the more 'masculine' patterns. At least I hope so since that's what I've done for a friend's son for his HS graduation!
