Hi Quilting Friends,
Welcome to the “It’s a Guy Thing” blog hop, hosted by our quilting friend Carol at “Just Let Me Quilt”. We’re looking forward to visiting the rest of the participating bloggers to see the projects that they’ve created, just for the guys!
Sharon here. My life is filled with guys! My husband (a guy) and I have two sons (both guys), and even our dog, Rowdy, is a guy. When I choose fabrics and designs for a quilting project, it is generally going to be guy-friendly. You’re not going to find much flowery, frilly, or feminine stuff at my house, and that’s OK because I love my guys!
When my sons were small, there weren’t a lot of quilt designs (or fabrics) that were intended just for guys. That’s probably why many of the quilt designs that Susan and I create now are suitable for men (or little boys). Here are a few of our “guy quilt” projects from the past!
Nursery quilts, meant for “baby guys”:
Toddler quilts, meant for “small guy’s”:
And let’s not forget the mature guys!
Dad loves to build and create wonderful things with wood, so I designed this tool quilt, with foundation pieced tool blocks, to celebrate his 81st birthday a few years ago:
My younger son likes to cook and drink coffee, so I created this set of masculine kitchen accessories for him:
And, if your guy is a football fan, we even have a quilt pattern to celebrate his favorite team! Wouldn’t this quilt be great for staying warm in the stands (or snuggling on the sofa) during the big game?
Today’s project is for my husband, who is the head chef guy at our home most of the time. (He enjoys working in the kitchen, mostly, and he cooks delicious meals for us!) I made two Double Arrow blocks with gray and red Moda Grunge, and I’ve turned them into hot pads for my best guy, because even manly hands need protection from hot dishes!
Enter our giveaway for your chance to win a complementary copy of the “Double Arrow” PDF pattern! Entries will be accepted until July 31, and the winner will be notified via email by August 2. Good luck!
Thanks so much for stopping by today! We hope that you’ve enjoyed our display of “manly” projects, for the guys. Leave a comment- it will make our day!!
