Masculine Quilt Inspiration!

Updated: May 1

Home Track quilt by

Welcome to the world of more masculine-style quilts, where tradition meets contemporary flair. In a community often associated with delicate florals and pastel hues, men's quilts carve out a distinct niche blending a less-feminine color palette and modern sophistication.

Thank you to those who sent us their patterns to include. Please visit the designer's links and stores to show your support. Be sure to follow them on social media because they offer so many fun patterns. If you would like to be included in future inspiration blogs, just let us know. Next up are Patriotic projects, and Summer Inspiration if you would like to participate.

The above pattern is the Home Track pattern from our own Christina at CMarie Quilts.

Masculine Quilt Inspirations

Fourth and Inches quilt by Jessica Steele Designs

Fourth and Inches is just one of the sports-themed quilts by Jessica Steele Designs. Fourth and Inches is a quilt pattern inspired by American Football using a two-block layout to showcase pieced footballs and the four hashmarks, which measure distance and ball placement on the field. This would be perfect for your football-player son or the sports junkie in your house.

Speck in the Eye quilt by ttquilts, Tourmaline and Thyme

Laureen from Tourmaline & Thyme, or ttquilts, can change the look of any quilt just by changing the colorway of the fabrics. This is one of her patterns called Speck in the Eye. Spin these blocks to create an optical illusion in your guy's favorite colors.

Chicago Geese quilt by Sharon Holland Designs

This Chicago Geese quilt by Sharon Holland is perfect for the scrap lover because it looks like a true scrap quilt but it starts with a controlled palette of 10 fabrics for the "geese". The clever block construction produces scrap "goslings" that can be used to create patchwork bonus projects or even smaller size quilts depending on the size Chicago Geese quilt you start with.

Waterfalls quilt with curved piecing by Due North Handmade

Kate from Due North Handmade says,"I believe that quilts are genderless (for the most part) just like I believe colors have no gender. I love the color blue, my son loves pink. Quilts with geometric patterns in particular lend themselves well to showcasing special interests or themes. My "Waterfalls" quilt which uses gentle curves to mimick the motion of water falling over rocks. In the end, I don't think it matters much. Create the piece you want and enjoy the process."

Inbound quilt by Jenn Marks of

Inbound is a bold, modern quilt pattern featuring a variation on large-scale log cabin blocks, with the addition of quarter-circle curves. Minimal piecing leads to maximum visual impact. Jenn of Sewistry_NC has video tutorials to take you through 3 different ways to sew curve blocks--she is setting you up for success!

Touchdown quilt pattern by All Sewn Up

Another football-lover quilt is written for the confident beginner. Touchdown by All Sewn Up is straight piecing for the field and a simple paper piecing block for the field line hashmarks. You can even add a block depicting your favorite football team in the center or embroider your team name in the end goal section.

Ski Mountain quilt by Charisma Horton

Ski Mountain by Charisma Horton can be made for the skier or hiker in your family. It's a great quilt to use up Fat Quarters, layer cakes, or charm packs. Think of all the color palettes you can use to make this your own.

Coquina Dream quilt by Amy Thurston of Sew Thursty Quilt Co

Amy of Sew Thursty Quilt Co has this awesome optical illusion quilt. The Coquina Dream quilt was inspired by warm summer breezes, salty ocean air, and sand between your toes! This block-based pattern is a fun, fast make that is so versatile. Just change the colors to match the room.

Stargazer quilt by Rona the Ribbiter

Stargazer is Rona the Ribbiter's unique and modern remake of the traditional Carpenter Star pattern. Featured in Make Modern Magazine, this quilt is beginner-friendly and fat quarter-friendly in 3 different sizes.

What makes a quilt more for a man than a woman in your mind? Is it color? Or is it more about the design? Share your thoughts, we'd love to hear them!
