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.
