    I showed it to my DH and he liked it and said it looked fine for a guy. Of course I really like it too. The colors are nice together.

    No, no, no...it is not "girly" at all. I wonder what your husband sees in it that makes him think "girly"? It is PERFECT. I have seen men's shirts that have fabrics that look "girly" to me, yet the men buy them. Love the colors and the fabrics. I am sure the young man is going to love it.

    Gorgeous quilt!! Unfortunately I agree that most young college age males won't like the teal (sorry).

    The quilt looks great. I am using some of the same colors for my BIL a quilt throw.

    I asked my 15-year-old son (with no mention of the discussion) if he'd take this to college, and after hemming and hawing (and I told him to be honest, no one's feelings would be hurt), he said he thought it was kind of feminine.

    I didn't think it was girly at all. Go figure.

    I think it's beautiful, and my DH agrees. He's a pink-a-phobe, but he likes this quilt. He said the black was a good touch for a guy quilt (I think its actually your dark brown that's reading black), and he also said that a dash of burgundy in it maybe in the corners would be nice too (??)
    Quilts and cats just go together!

    if your grandson doesn't especially like the top, he can turn it over and use the other side. i think dh or other males just might think that any quilt it too girly! poo poo on them! i think that your grandson will appreciate that you made something just for him.

    Let me tell ya, that dorm bed won't get made any way. When it lays there all scrunched up, it will be just fine. And I don't it's too girlie anyway. If you should do something like this again, have the person wanting it done or the one to use it specifically what they want. I think you're a dear to do it, period.

    Gee whiz, guys! Guess if there is no beer, cars or guns in a quilt, it is "girly".

    I love it but I think I would ask the person receiving the quilt.
    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.

    Does DH usually pick out the colors, go with your own gut it's the quilt your making
    Create something beautiful from scraps.

    I think the colors are fine for a guy. Dark enough not to show dirt, probably won't get washed much.
    And enough color not to be drab. Great guy pattern.

    Doesn't look girly to me either. I think it is perfect for a young man's dorm!

    I think those who think it girly (your DH and some on this board) are reading that busy circle print (which I like!) as "flowery". I think to some people prints of any kind are girly. (Stripes, on the other hand, are masculine). Not suggesting you do this, but I'm guessing that if this quilt in these colors were all solids, no one would declare it girly.

    Whatever the decision on its gender identification, it's a beautiful quilt!

    Make dark brown pillowcases & have the quilting done in brown thread or variegated running into brown. The quilt is beautiful. Someday, that grandson will entertain a young woman in his home and that quilt will make an impression on the woman who recognizes that this guy has an excellent sense of values and decor! The quilt's not feminine but is stylish as modern/classic.

    I don't think it's too girlie, but if I remember boys' dorm rooms, I would not want one of my handmade quilts anywhere near them! Most college guys aren't interested in coordinating their bedding with pillowcases, or want anything to "brighten up" the room. I think I might make a dark blue fleece throw and save the quilt for graduation when he gets his own place.
