    Question What would you use for a boy?

    Greens and yellows, blues and grays, blue and cream...anything as long as it doesn't have pink or purple!

    I have 2 DGS & am making them a graduation quilt (1 in 2 yrs, the other in 3 yrs). They are sooo hard to buy, get & sew for - so I went with STARS. Good luck....!!

    How about a train - with the different train cars going across the quilt? For other ideas, google 'boy toy coloring pages'. Lots of cute, simple shapes come up that would be easy to applique.

    An I spy is always a safe choice.

    Ones my DGS or other boys we know have liked - construction vehicles, Cars, superheroes, hot air balloons, puzzle pieces, dinosaurs, Pokemon, Sponge Bob, cats & dogs, airplanes, sailboats, teddy bears, the playmat panels with roads to play with matchbox cars, zoo animals, Clifford the Big Red Dog (supposed to be a book), cowboys and horses. . .

    I have the accuquilt go die for the zoo animals, may have to alter my fabrics to use that. I was hoping to find a moon and stars die, but that's only available for the studio model...I'm not that addicted yet....I can find stars. oh well. back to the drawing board - or LQS

    There a 4 square pattern that we call "pieced hearts", it's still hearts but more boxy.

    What about just the silhouette of a bear? or car?

    I just looked up "pieced hearts" and found everything except the one I wanted---

    see if I can replicate it using letters

    OX
    XX

    one of the XX units can be a rectangle and then the O and other X are squares. VERY simple to adjust to any size. Needs sashing as you have in yours or alternating squares not the color in the heart. Also looks good set on point with alternating solid/print squares

    Sailboats or houses or maybe teddy bears would be cute.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.
