    Another member recently posted about making a bricks quilt in flannel. That's an awesome man quilt.

    I posted the flannel bricks quilt. I started on it today.

    Not that you really need a pattern for this, but it was in the Spring 2016 Quilty magazine. The blocks are 6"X3" finished.

    The pattern is available here: Flannel Bricks Pattern

    Boxed Squares in rich dark colors can be very manly. It works up fairly quickly. I hope you are machine quilting.

    I made this quilt for my son and I think it’s pretty masculine

    I agree with "wesing"-a brick pattern quilt made up of flannels would be really nice.

    Make a flannel 'Yellow Brick Road' quilt. My husband loves his flannel quilt. It's throw size....perfect for 'watching' the race with his eyes shut.

    I made this quilt with plaids and it was a gift for a male cousin. It's a free download here:

    I like to make lists. I also like to leave them laying on my sewing table and then guess what's on the list while at the fabric store. Fun game.

    I like Warm Wishes also. There are many manly outdoor or sports fabrics to chose from for the focus fabric. Hope you get it done in time.

    Rail Fence is quick to stitch and to quilt in the ditch. All of the other ideas are super, too, but mostly a "male" quilt depends on the fabrics chosen.

    I’m almost done with this blue and grey quilt for my stepson, it reminds me of the old school razor blades that my dad used.

    I made a chevron quilt last year for a male friend of DD. I used a new pattern and it was way too time consuming. I prefer the chevron pattern from Missouri Star. I made one the year before using Jenny's pattern for a dear friend. It is quick and easy to do.

    As someone mentioned, Disappearing 9-patch or Bonnie Hunter's Bricks and Stones. Have made one each for men. Using their favorite colors or team colors is a great idea that someone suggested. Here are the 2 quilts I made. The Disappearing 9-patch was put on point. The leftovers from the Bricks and Stones were used to make a lap quilt for me for my Library.

    If you are thinking of more of a novelty pattern, I found this site not long ago and she has some really cute "male" patterns. I.e. pipes, hammers, wrenches...

    I very quick quilt is by Villa Rosa patterns called Stars and Stripes. It makes a great “mans quilt” and goes together easily as the blocks are 12.5 inches. It takes 8 fat quarters and 1 and a quarter of background fabric and I think a yard for the border. I have always used my left overs for the binding. I have made several of these for Quilts of Valor. I made one of these quilts for my husbands nephew for graduation.

    You are getting lots of great ideas. I used a pattern titled ‘The Man Quilt’ from Craftsy. My husband approved of the pattern and he usually says ‘quilts are always made for women - you know, they are too phoophy for a man’. Son loved it and that’s fairly hard to do! I downloaded the pattern and it made up very quickly.

    Any of the basic blocks (4p, D9p, Churn Dash, etc) in chocolate, warm blues or the logos and colors of a sports team. I find that the boys/men are some of the most appreciative recipients of quilts. They understand the work, time and thought put into the gift. So any colors or styles will be loved.
