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'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!
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.
