looks nice, what is the border going to be. Baby blanket's are not your old time blankts.
I just made one with motorcylces wnd flames and another with a fall deer scene and camafluge.
They were for boys of Dad's that hunt. I like bright colors.

I like your choice of fabrics, with the small textures and clear brights, and how you balanced off the contrasting reds vs greens. Please do post when you put on the border and quilt it!
I have read that babies enjoy the stimulation of seeing bright colors, not just the calming pastels.

No problem finding the baby with that quilt - I love the churn dash block - cute quilt.
