Oui Oui Monsieur - We have Boy Quilts

It's official I have some boy quilts at the ready...well quilt tops...but that's halfway to potential gifts.

This was the only boyish quilt I had, which my brother claimed when home from Korea for his first baby ( a boy) due any day now!
 

The pattern is from Camille Roskelley's book Sew Retro and the fabric is Sweetwaters Reunion line
 
 

Following on from this post where I showed you the craziness which is my creative side...I have another finished top that is more male gender orientated.

 
Do you get on a buzz and can't stop thinking about it or making it until it's purged from your system?
 
 
For me it's cross/plus blocks at the moment and I have no idea what has sparked this new obsession

 
 This is my favourite print in this arrangement Scribble Cars in Taupe.
Quilty facts are 3" finished squares in a plus arrangement with Sand coloured background.
The finished quilt size is 48" x 60"
 
I'm calling this one The Hug Quilt...since I just made a Kisses Quilt
Quilty stats 40" x 53"...12" finished blocks with 1" finished sashing

 
Here's some outside shots...it's stopped raining! of the Hug Quilt..not flat mind you because it's a little windy and my quilt holders (moaning teenagers) are away

 
I tried lying it down on the grass but still not great...the colours are clearer tho

 
I love this print also and it would make a great matching pillowcase!...but I've cut all mine up!
YAY!
Now for quilting ideas......???
 
The line is Le Monsieurs by Tamara Kate for Michael Miller and also comes in the Convertible (blue & green) and Roadster ( red,blue & green) palette.
