It’s sometimes difficult to think of a quilt design to make for a man, and can be even more difficult to find fabrics that don’t seem too “girly” or cute. Leaving aside the options of fabrics featuring beer labels or half naked women, I thought muted blue and brown would be a good option.
And here’s a secret: I used flannel (the 108″ wide backing flannel) for both the batting and the backing! As you can see, it drapes beautifully. An added advantage was that flannel sticks to itself pretty well, so there was no trouble with layers shifting when I quilted it.
Having made it, I wrote up the pattern for Studio Stitch. They will be offering it free with purchase. I don’t know details, so if you’re interested, go to their website and sign up for the newsletter and they’ll let you know. (Newsletter signup is just below the big picture on the front page).
Have a good Thanksgiving and STAY SAFE!
