A few weeks ago when I released the Jonah Quilt Pattern, several people commented that they were excited to see a pattern that was easily made a little more masculine. Me too! I don't think a quilt for a girl needs to be feminine or a quilt for a boy needs to be masculine — it really doesn't matter — but I do think that it is a little trickier to find patterns that lean more masculine if that is what you are looking for.
Then I started to think that which of my other patterns would lend themselves well to this type of project. I saw a new woven collection from Primitive Gatherings called Urban Homestead Gatherings. I happen to really love gray and brown, they are two of my favorite colors, even though I mostly sew with bright colors and this collection does gray and brown really well so I put together some quilt ideas.
Do you have a favorite? I don't think I can pick just one here — I guess I would go with the Jonah Quilt because it's a newer one, but I would love to make any of these if I had time for them!
