Geared for Guys Book Tour and Giveaway!!

COVER

So, it is my turn on the book tour. Emily and I met several years ago at one of my first quilt shows, HMQS in Salt Lake - not sure the year, but I am assuming it was around 5 years ago. Emily has always amazed me with her design talents. Her quilt patterns and fabric are so darn cute and now, she has a book! A great book at that! I love that she has made this book for guys in mind. There are plenty of super cute (or should I say Manly :-) quilts to make in this book. You can make any of the projects in the book for the special guys in your life.

Switchback - Copy

When I was looking through the book, my eyes were drawn to this quilt, "Switchback."  I love it! I can't wait to make it myself!

 Switchback - Copy2

So, if you want a chance to win a copy of Emily's book - leave a comment below and you are entered to win! If you just can't wait and want to pre-order the ebook - do so here. Be sure to continue the 30 day book tour by visiting For the Love tomorrow.  Check back on Monday for the winner! Good luck!

Another great guy quilt. I think there's a quilt for every man in my life in this book. Thanks for the opportunity to win it.

The guys seem to wear out their quilts so much faster than the girls. I'm always looking for more "manly" ideas.

Vickie said...

That looks like a good book to have. My husband and some of his friends each made a stack n whack quilt during a class we were having and they did a super job. Men are easy to teach, they are always trying to find an easier way to make things work. To top it off my husband quilted it himself. It was his first and so far his last but it's a keeper!
