    Thank you ahead for everyones input... Using the blue for border and plan to use the off white for binding..

    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..

    Yes, I think this is what I will do... Lisa above also suggested this and it is what I have been tossing around..

    You are right... didn't think about how dirty it could get... I'll have to find some more red or yellow as you have suggested.. The back will be a med green flannel..
    Have fun making your baby things,... I can't seem to keep up.. made one in Jan for granddaughter, this one for nephews boy due April, and a nieces girl due in May.

    I really like it! The only thing I might change are the 4 patch blocks (the ones with the 2 large squares and 4 patches) so that all the small bright squares go to the center.

    I like your color combo, but I wouldn't use a lot of white. You know how babies leak. I would also change the block above the center to a red one to balance the center out, and the 2nd block from the right in the second row is somehow not turned correctly. It's going to be a cute quilt when done - don't forget to post it again.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    If you are expecting this to get used, you might reconsider white binding. Try auditioning a narrow red (1") to stop the quilt from running into the border. Then a blue border and bind with blue.

    Very cute quilt for a little!

    I know they will love it, however I do agree with Aria about the binding.

    Cute quilt, but I would use the blue for the binding as well. The binding gets a lot of wear, white may not hold up.
