Fabrics are important, but so is the technique and design of the quilt. I’m still drawn to simplified traditional quilts. Extremely busy, technique heavy quilts are just not for me.
I think quilts for guys are mostly fabric choices, but I would not do a fussy applique quilt for a guy, lol. Cork@pa.rr.com
I do think it's all about fabric choice. Quilt patterns can be easy to translate with masculine colors.
Once you eliminate floral appliqué from the equation, I think any quilt pattern can be made to suit anyone as long as you use appropriate fabrics.
It seems to be easier for me now to find quilts for the men in my life. What is NOT easy is finding fabrics in the themes they want in their quilts! Sandy A
Hello Lynne.Love your new quilt. Thank you for another great pattern. Heard you are coming to my neck of the woods in middle of June and hope you will take time to view/experience the makerspace we have.it is called GoCreate.
I think it is a combination of pattern and fabric choice. So patterns just have a feminine feel to them. The quilting itself can definitely make a quilt have a feminine or masculine feel.
I think it's mostly fabric choices. It is very hard to find fabric in the right colors that are not really feminine looking.
While I don't usually make quilts specifically with guys in mind, I think guys love using quilts almost as much as we ladies do! I think homespun plaids and your warm color palette make perfect quilt fabrics for guys.
Definantly fabric choices but it needs to be the right pattern also.The men in my life seem to be drawn to bold colors leaning toward the darker shades and simple clear cut patterns. They also prefer cotton or flannel. Thankfully there are more options now. Love the new quilt and versatility of designs!
I think that is definitely about fabric choices. In fact, I used the Oak Haven Fabric line and was going to donate the finished quilt. Except, my husband loved it and said that I was absolutely not donating it. So I kept that quilt for on our bed and am working on another quilt to donate.
Fabric choices for guy quilts are more widely available now with sport, nature & novelty themes. I’ve always thought that civil war reproduction prints work well. Many times it’s a pattern that’s harder to find until this introduction of your Country Roads patterns. Thanks.
I think it is fabric choice for a guy quilt. Most pattern will work for a guy quilt. Your fabric lines are perfect for guy quilts.
Fabric choices really play a factor in choosing a quilt for a guy. I am married to a wonderful man that loves quilts and will tell me if I should make it or not. He has chosen patterns and fabric, giving me a man's view on quilting.
I think it is the fabric choice.
I am an only daughter with 4 brothers and I have a daughter and three sons. I have always found it hard to find suitable quilt patterns and fabrics for men. I love the log cabin variation you have made. It is so versatile and Your fabrics are beautiful and masculine all in one!
Fabric choices are important for guy quilts as is the design. Clean, well defined blocks seem to be received best. The Fence Post options would work well.
I really have a hard time making guy quilts. I tend to go to darker colors or homespuns. Would love to have some great examples of guy quilts. Thanks for the giveaway.
Yes fabrics for males is very difficult to find. Our church group makes XLTwin Quilts for a local men's rehab center. We have to choose our fabrics to reflect a mainly vibe. It is an ongoing project because they are allowed to take the quilts with them if they so choose so it makes them very personal.
Fun block—I love it in the Windmills setting! I think it’s all about the fabric when making quilts for guys—probably no butterfly or unicorns!
As a grandmother to six boys, I have had to train myself to look for fabrics and quilt designs that are masculine. It really is about the fabric, and simpler designs seem more suitable as well. You do a great job designing quilts that would make wonderful gifts for the men in my family.
Finding the right fabric is key to making a quilt for a man. But, one must also consider the pattern - nothing too girly looking.
I think it's about the fabric choices. I wouldn't make a pink quilt for a guy or use a fabric that's too flowery.
I believe fabric choice is critical in making a quilt for a guy. However, design choice is important in that floral, or cute applique is probably not what most guys woukd choose. Simple, traditional designs seem to be the choice of most men , including my three sons and husband.
Oh wow, I love the versatility of this block! I believe that both fabric and pattern go into the making of a quilt for a man. The fabrics should be on the darker side, maybe dark brown, reds,and blacks along with lighter colors as contrasts to symbolize that men have a male and a feminine side (as do women), even though men may not want to acknowledge that! The pattern should be bold yet symbolic in order to appeal to mens' practical side! Okay now I think I've talked myself into making a quilt for my husband, and your fence posts lap would be perfect!
I think a guy's quilt is all about the fabric as almost any design works. (KT fabric is great for guys!) How do we sign up for the Blockheads???
I'm posting the first Blockheads II block here on Wednesday, June 6th. All the info yu need to follow along will be here.
I find that many quilts that I make for men are mostly from a good fabric choice but perhaps with more geometric designs. Most all of your fabrics are suitable for both men and women! Thanks for the giveaway!
Since traditional quilts do not really seem to look "manly," the three quilts I have made for the men in my family appealed to their hobbies, i.e. hunting, airplanes, etc.
Funny you should ask that question today. I have been searching for a pattern for my 34 year old son to go on his queen size bed for the past 6 months. Nothing has appealed to me. I am thinking about the Log Cabin pattern as you can make that Manish by choosing darker colors. It has been hard to find something especially for that age. He is a Veteran, but he has 2 red, white and blue quilts but they are not big enough.
I think it is all about the fabric choices you make for a guy quilt.
I think a man's quilt is really about the fabric choices- when I make a quilt for my husband -I look for the darker country colors
Anything can make a quilt for a man. It all starts with the man!Love that log cabin with a twist block. It's going to be so much fun to play with and see what happens. Thank you for the idea.
Fabric is much of the challenge of making a quilt for a guy. My guys don't do sports or hunting and they are super picky about any "military" fabrics. Plaid work well' This pattern would look great in just about any fabric.
Being from Kansas I really love the fence post border. Jenellejb at AOL dot com
So far the quilts I made for guys, it wasc all about the fabric.
I think most any pieced quilt can work well for a guy given the right choice of fabric and colors. I love KT fabric because it works so well for both men and women!
I do have trouble finding quilt patterns for men. But I agree, it can come down to the fabric that is used. Thanks!
I think it is harder to make quilts for guys, but think the fabric used is what makes it a guy's quilt. LOVE your new patterns!

It seems like most patterns are neutral gender, not so for fabric. Most Kansas trouble fabric can go either way. Love your pattern and the fabric.
I tend to enjoy the warm colors so finding material for a man's quilt is pretty easy for me.
quilts for guys are more difficult in selecting fabrics. But, if you know what their hobbies or interests are - that makes it a bit easier. I always loved making train theme quilts for my late husband. Love using them now too since they remind me of him
My quilts for men are typically sports, neck tie quilts or military based. T-shirt quilts are also a good choice.
I do think finding the right fabrics is tough for guys. I either go with sports or batiks. The colors in batiks can vary enough to fit for a guy no matter what the quilt pattern is.
