Geared For Guys Remix Tour

Yeah! It's the weekend!


I usually don't do a lot of blogging on the weekend.  But today is my day on the 
Geared For Guys Remix! Emily Herrick, the designer who wrote the book, 
asked a few people to make a girlie version of one of her quilts
 from her book Geared For Guys.
well, I actually practically begged her...
I love her beachy fabrics and her patterns!
I had been meaning to make one of the quilts from GFG Remix...

This one... which is one of my favorites... it was a hard choice but I decided on 
Ivy League in the end.
Still using the gray and white.. but I threw in some pink...
to give it a Parisian kind of look...
so here it is!
Ivy League

 I just had to take the opportunity to add the vintage buttons also.

 I really enjoyed making this quilt...
and I love Emily's book too. I have 5 sons... so I see myself getting a lot of
use out of this book.  
So, I guess it was perfect that I got to make one for me first!
Although... Oddball is still on my list. Especially after seeing
 April's  (Making Ends Meet blog)
version a couple of days ago on 
this tour... made out of It's a Shore Thing... yes, I want that one too!

 I can't wait to see the other girlie-guy quilts coming up in the next few days!
It's been a fun tour so far... 
please go visit 
 My Quilting Diet tomorrow for more of the tour!

(did you notice that I left one safety pin in my quilt)?
Darn, I hate that!

Great color combination! And I agree--Emily has great patterns--I had fun making Helix for this blog hop too!

Looks great! I have 5 sons too so I'm sure I could get lots of use out of this book too! I'll have to check it out.
