    Hi everyone, my name is Jeff. My wife has been quilting since her grandmother taught her as a little girl. I just started, having found alot of free time due to the economic down turn. I was immediately hooked... although I have a hard time finding more masculine quilting ideas.

    Jeff, welcome. A nice guy pattern (IMHO) is one called "card trick". You could do this in bold colors, or in your own color scheme. I just finished a top in this pattern. It was fun and not too hard. Best wishes.

    Welcome, Jeff, from New York state. As you spend more time here, I'm sure you will find lots of patterns to make. A lot of us are on a budget. There are ways around it.
