Well I am the penultimate stop of the Geared for Guys blog tour. You may have spotted the book touring around blogland. It's written by Emily Herrick and is jam packed full of quilts for the men and boys in your life. You can buy a hard copy in your favourite bookstore or get an pdf version in Emily's Etsy shop. There have been opportunities to win a copy of the book along the way and this post is no exception. Leave me a comment telling me what song you would sing if you were stuck in the desert overnight (see end of post...) and Mr Random will pick a comment one week from now for a chance to win the book.
Here's a picture of Emily at Quilt Market with her book. And the final stop on the blog tour is back at her blog tomorrow.
I have three guys in my immediate family in the form of my long suffering Welsh husband and my two teenage sons. So a book of manly quilts is just what I needed. And as a special bonus, the front cover depicts a quilt designed and made by none other than Fat Quarterly's John Quiltdad.
My other favourite quilts in the book are Oddball,
this retro text Gamer quilt...
and my favourite of the whole book, Switchback
which has a whole cowboy out in the wilderness thing going on reminding me of when the Three Amigos were out in the desert singing Blue Shadows on the Trail. Little known fact...our three cats were called Ned Nederlander, Lucky Day and Dusty Bottoms. Goodnight Lucky. Goodnight Dusty. Goodnight Ned. Leave a comment letting me know what you would sing if you were stuck in the desert overnight for a chance to win a copy of Geared for Guys.
