    My co-worker and I are planning on making a full size quilt for our boss. He is always so good to us and he has a fishing cabin. I bought the material with fish, bears, eagles,bobcats and such. Really manly looking. Now I can't decided on a pattern other than DN9. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

    Warm Wishes is great for all and allows for a focus fabric :wink:

    Log cabin would be a good one. Or what about a streak of ligntening or rail fence? Or you could just cut the blocks big sqs so you could see the design. The 10 min block is a good one too. Be sure and post a photo of it when it's done!! We all love "eye candy" Happy Stitchin' crafty_linda_b

    Try this one Center Stripes. It is on All People Quilt website. I did it for a friend's brother using ties from his father who past away. I think is very "manly" looking.

    This is a great pattern for showing off focus fabrics and isn't very difficult.

    I made a nice bear paw quilt with fishing, fly tying and cabins fabric - each bear paw had a theme like fishing, hunting, or cabin, etc. It turned out real nice.

    That is a great idea too! Will check on that. I done the turning twenty twice now and really like the results. Love the warm wishes yet.

    Wow! That is super! I see what you mean, like the fact you can see the pattern. and it does have the bear effect visual! Thanks! I think this may be it! My co-worker has no experience in quilting, so I will be the leader on this project.

    Big squares so we could see the design sounds good. Bear claw may be more than I have time for at this point.. will check out streak of lightening.

    The Churn Dash pattern works nicely to frame up a focus fabric in the centre. YOu could switch them up with some of your fabrics.

    Sorry, I don't hav ea link ... there was a great fishing themed quilt shown on here last week. The poster' had made the quilt for her SIL.

    Why not a rag quilt. Men seem to like those over other types quilts.

    Its also alot easier to make than traditional blocks of any type.

    4 in 4 patch would be good. I'm attaching a picture of one I did for my son using guy shirts. He loved it! If you don't want to recycle shirts for it, you could by plaids and checks.

    ummmm??? did the OP not say she already had the fabrics purchased? and ask us for suggestions that would work for that fabric?




    I just spotted this pattern, and thought it might work with the fabrics you are planning to use ....

    Oh my gosh, the 4 n 4 patch is Awesome. That one would work as well. I am sure your son loves his quilt, it truly is awesome! Thanks for sharing.

    I made this one for a 60 year old man:



    Spilt 9 Patch is useful too.


    This one for my Brother, can't remember the name of this pattern?


    And this one for a special neighbour, Square in square:


    The main thing to remember, I found, was my choice of fabrics, not too many floral!

    A bow tie quilt would be good. A rag quilt in flannel would also be nice. Jeanniebelle
