Geared for Guys – quilts for the men in your life + Giveaway

You may remember our talented friend, Emily Herrick, pattern and fabric designer extraordinaire? (Not to mention, all-around fun person?)
Well, she’s done it again! Emily has created a whole collection of masculine-inspired patterns in her new book Geared for Guys, with a fabulous contribution by QuiltDad – John Adams. I’m excited to be a pit stop on Emily’s blog tour so that I can share her new book with you.
Geared for Guys has 8 quilts designed especially for, well, guys.  Emily also has very helpful information about color theory and fabric selection when working with a masculine color palette. It’s excellent.
One of my favorite quilts in the book is Switchback (above).  I watched Emily piece this particular quilt when we were at the same retreat last November. The fabrics and colors are gorgeous and I love the Missoni-inspired zig-zag look.
I also love the Caution quilt – another different take on the current chevron trend.
Busy Emily is on her way to quilt Market as I type (literally) to debut her latest fabric collection, Shore Thing for Michael Miller. If you loved Going Coastal last year, you will love Shore Thing.  And there’s a new version of that adorable madras plaid print, in case you missed out on that one last time.
If you are looking for some great guy-quilt inspiration, this book has got it. Geared for Guys in hard copy is available for pre-order for $14.75 in Emily’s etsy shop or available right now as a PDF ebook in case you want to get started on the perfect Father’s Day present.
Emily is also giving away a printed copy to you readers! All you have to do is leave a comment on this post. (One per person, please.)  Winner will be picked next Monday, May 21. GIVEAWAY CLOSED.
If you want another chance to win, you could visit yesterday’s pit stop on the Geared for Guys blog tour, Amy’s Creative Side, or tomorrow’s stop, Blue Nickel Studios!
WINNER!
I am always on the lookout for masculine quilts. It would be super to have this book for inspiration. Thanks for the chance.
