Emily Herrick of Crazy Old Ladies is a talented pattern and fabric designer. Her latest collection for Michael Miller Fabrics is called Shore Thing.
Today is Day 23 of Emily’s 30 Blogs in 30 Days Geared for Guys Book Blog Tour. That’s a mouthful!
I also get to share some photos I took of Emily’s Quilt Market Booth. Totally not planned but the timing of the book tour worked perfectly, LOVE when that happens!
The book contains 8 quilt patterns for the men in your life including a fabulous design by John Adams of Quilt Dad. John’s quilt is Urban Decay and features the gray hexagons hanging on the lower rod. It’s also featured on the cover of the book.
Also included are tips on color theory, finding fabrics, and design elements all with your favorite guy in mind. I especially enjoyed that color palettes are included for each quilt in the book along with a description on why they were selected.
My favorite quilt in the book is High Voltage. I’d like to make it up with a mix of wool and quilting cottons including printed textures like Robert Kaufman Quilter’s Linen.
For a chance to win a copy of the book leave a comment telling me what man in your life you’d like to make a quilt for. I’ll draw a winner on Monday.
Emily’s book is available for sale in the Crazy Old Ladies Etsy Shop in a choice of printed book or PDF.
