    I thought it was a pattern to make a man too! I think there are patterns for everything else! Let's see, warm and natural for his insides...

    If he "doesn't care" make him one with Hello Kitty designs.

    or

    a B/W one is manly.

    A while back I post a page "A little for my Crappie quilt would be nice". If you can find that page (I don't know how to add the link) but it shows what I used for my hubby and everyone of his friends as well as my brother now wants one. SO maybe you could use the same type of idea but change the crappie fishes to something he would like.

    i made the quilt in my avatar for my nephew. the colors are a bit bright for a grown man but the bear paw pattern is easy and rather manly. i made my own panel with a bear & tree applique.
    i'm working on DH quilt now. green & brown batiks. link to pattern, scroll down to Magic Squares.

    I think it would make a great mans quilt.

    Yes,my reaction was lay him on some wide muslin & trace around him. Then crazy quilt the whole guy . A great gift for a bachelorette! Or a divorce survivor!! There are those hunky guy fabrics now. My college girls loved them as pillows. Off topic, sorry... creative brain will ramble!

    Does he have any interests or hobbies? I made my hubby a quilt with "Link" on it from a Legend of Zelda video game.

    This was taken before I finished piecing and before I started quilting, but you get the idea

    LOL from me too. And of course we know there is no pattern for us women, especially since women's lib hit us.

    There are some nice seascape type patterns around too that, made with deep greens and/or blues can be very masculine.

    You can get a back issue of the magazine from APQ or a kit of the quilt from FunQuilts (Kerr and Ringle's business name) at http://www.funquilts.com/gallery/patterns/patterns.html
    Love this one! Great for that 25-30+ male.

    Blues and beiges are nice in a man's quilt. I have seen a few made entirely from men's shirt fabrics - which you can get free from some tailors You can mix the blues and beiges in the blocks or do blue and beige blocks then alternate them. Boat and ship patterns look masculine + you could make a bunch of different ship patterns and alternate them I did two boys quilts with a large ship (Bluenose) in the centre, then alternating blue and yellow blocks (could be blue and beige blocks) all around,, more on the horizontal rows to make the quilts longer, the check and tattersall borders arond the blocks, then another couple of horizontal fors, more check and tatersal borders, then dark blue binding. They bot loved them almost to death. Even worn they still look cute.

    The "T" block looks "manly" with appropriate "colors."

    Plaids, broadcloth type fabric.

    The lonestar quilt.

    The Mariner's Compass Quilt is a beautiful quilt but this would be time consuming and require advanced quilting skill. I don't think I would ever be this skilled.

    Where did you find the Blue Nose for the center. Pieced or a picture? My son is in the Navy at Little Creek and wants his wedding quilt to be a Mariners Compass. I want to include Tall Ships as I am an artist and paint watercolor portraits of tall ships. I would like to include some tall ships in with the guilt.
    I already have one compass done. (The fold method) Need to complete 3 more then will build around. Do you have any suggestions.

    That's what I'm needing to work on for my DH now...making a french braid, using blue and gold (and some brown, believe it or not!). Isn't that funny...we are both making blue and gold french braids for our sweethearts!

    :wink:
