    I think it's a perfect quilt for a little boy.

    It's going to be a wonderful quilt. My only suggestion is to either add another bright colored block above the center block to make a bright diamond or to move the red block up one space to make a bright colored center row. No matter what your final layout is, I'm betting it will be a loved quilt.

    I wouldn't use white for the binding, as the edges seem to get dirty more quickly. Try the red or yellow. They'll really stand out and "frame" it. That's a great baby boy quilt. I'm getting a new grandson next month and am busily making all kinds of receiving blankets and buntings. Also made a minky quilt out of left overs my friend gave me. The only thing I don't like about it, is I didn't have any blue to put in it. BUT, it's soooo soft and cuddly!

    i really like it. that said, i'm a 'balanced' person. so i would change the block above the center triangle to your yellow/red combo.

    This is the idea I have been playing with... moving up the red one and making another of the plain ones for below..
