I need advice!

Damien wants a quilt. Since I've finished my one, he's been stealing it. And that just won't do :)

So, what's a good "manly" fabric? I'm thinking plaids, but suggestions would be lovely!

(Please nothing with John Deere on it, please!)

geometrics are great. solids, stripes. even some diamond prints from hopevalley (non-florals). I really love quilts made with all solids right now. Would he like something like that?

Does it need to be really manly? How about colours that fit in with your living area, team colours, ideas from his favourite shows/movies (pin stripes for Blues Brothers, stars for Star Wars, etc). Food fabrics or coffee if he's a foodie. Cherrie

Find some old wool suiting and off you go. Just right for winter.

My other suggestion is have you seen Red Pepper Quilts. To die for. http://www.redpepperquilts.com
