First – Happy Mother’s Day to all of my mom, and mom at heart friends! I hope that you are enjoying the day with your family! Today is a double celebration at our house, as Ella turns 12 today! She was born the day before Mother’s Day 12 years ago, and I fully enjoy celebrating the day with our precious girl.

Have you seen this book tour in blogland? My friend, Emily, from Crazy Old Ladies wrote Geared for Guys, for the guys in all of our lives!

With eight great patterns, there’s something for every guy in this book! Whether your guy leans toward rustic and outdoors, or artistic and modern – Emily has you covered.

Over the course of May the book is being featured on a number of blogs, follow along to get a peek at the variety of patterns. One that stuck out to me is “High Voltage”

The simple and bold piecing makes for a fast and edgy quilt, perfect for a young man in your life!

If you would like to win a copy of Geared for Guys – leave me a comment telling me: who you would plan to make a quilt for first.

And if you can’t wait to see the rest, visit Emily’s shop to purchase Geared for Guys.

I will select a winner on Wednesday, May 16th, 2012 – Good Luck!
