    Opinions and suggestions on this baby quilt layout

    I want to make just a drag around quilt for my little man that is due in May. I want to put a small red border and then add these charm pack squares around it. Does this look ok, should I maybe use another border color....do the squares look good? or should I just add a border and not the squares?
    Thanks for any suggestions.

    I like it.....Only remember one thing red is a excitement color along with yellow if you want a nap time blanket go with blue or brown calming colors. I like it!! Congrats and happy quilting

    I like your idea very much. The blocks are fine and the border with the charm packs make it so colorful. Such a happy quilt, your little man will spend a lot of time learning his animals with it.

    I think the colors shown in the above photo compliment the quilt wonderfully. Good points raised above though...

    Just a thought, try auditioning placing the red border in the middle of the charm pack squares. Then I perhaps would remove the red charm squares.

    Cute, cute, cute but I think I would take the black out, seems a bit harsh. All of the other colors are great though.

    Uh oh, I'm on the other side here. I think the charm squares are too big of a "blank" area with the smaller, very busy print of the quilt. If the charm pack pieces were smaller, I would like it better, but I think it competes with the quilt in the standard size. I totally agree with taking out the black as there isn't any black in the panel and it does look harsh.

    I agree, I like the colored border but the black just stuck out to me.

    I love the little animals, so cute, and the blocks around them are great!! I like the idea of a brown or even a soft blue as the binding, a good strong one that will be able to deal with the dragging around bit!! :^) Congratulations, I am very excited for you, little people are awesome!!! Little miracles!!

    Very cute. I think it is splendid and would just add the red border. You have enough color and action your "little man" will be so interested in it.
