    My son wants me to make him a quilt. I have asked what kind and he responded " I don't Care" So My question is What kind of quilt pattern do I do for a 28 years old? I would like for it to be manly. Please help.

    Turning Twenty could work.

    I've got 3 in the works that are similar to turning twenty (figured out my own sizes of blocks rather than buy the pattern). One is motorcycles/classic cars, one is motorcycles/cars/skeletons, one is tropical stuff, the main fabric is Party Parrots. I showed one to the other son and he loved it. The top went together very quickly.

    Happy Hour is another nice pattern. It looks pretty easy too.

    There's a quilt designed by Bill Kerr and Weeks Ringle that was featured in the June 2010 issue of American Patchwork and Quilting Magazine that would be great for a guy. It's called Crossing and looks like this: http://craftnectar.com/2010/04/12/cr...ret-and-susan/

    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

    I think it makes it more manly in the darker shades and many patterns would do.

    This doesn't help, but when I read your title, I thought "If I wsn't married, I'd be looking for a man pattern too!"

    LOL sorry!

    If you want something fast and easy with great result, Yellow Brick Road is a great one. I made one with deer, plaid and grass fabric. Hubby LOVES it!!

    I finished piecing this one for my hubby last week, it's on the masculine side I think.

    The pattern is called "Bali Sea Stars" and is in the book "Scrap-Basket Surprises". I did add sashing, cornerstons and the black and ivory border to the original pattern.

    I've seen some nice "Hidden Wells" and "Tube" quilts here that could be appropriate for men. The colors can really determine whether they'd appeal more to men than women, generally. Good luck and show us what you make!

    How about a simple rail fence pattern in medium/dark shades?

    I've seen patterns that look like argyle...I've always thought that would be a good pattern for a man.

    I saw this quilt picture in a catolog. There is not a pattern because it's the quilt for sale. I kept the picture because I thought it would make a good 'guy quilt'. It would be easy to make without a pattern. Someday, I will make it, but it will be larger than this one.

    I made this one for my soon to be 30 year old son. The pattern can be found here.

    I would think that just about any pattern that wasn't
    "girlie" would work. I'm not crazy about D9Ps and I truly dislike Turning Twenty but a Bow Tie, 9 Patch, Rail Fence, would work nicely. The main question for me would be does he want Scrappy? Modern? Traditional? Weed Wacker is a good scrappy pattern.

    I just bought a pattern to make quilt for DH for Christmas. Country Threads 'Square Within a Square #616'. I bought it locally, but you could probably find it online: www.countrythreads.com
    Hope this helps.
