    Is this too "girly" for a boy? For my little Aussie grandson?

    I didn't start on this with the intention of making it for my grandson, it just kind of evolved. Two of these fabrics I bought in Australia last trip, are made by the aboriginals. Is it too "girly" for a boy. What do you think?

    Girly would never have come to mind. It's a great quilt that your grandson would love.

    I think it's much more appropriate for a boy than a girl. What makes you believe it's "girly"?

    I did not see "girly" it the quilt at all. Really, I saw just a real neat quilt. I think any child would love to have it.

    I agree with everyone. It's perfect for a boy and those colors and designs are a striking combination! (My 11-year-old granddaughter would love it, too)

    No, It's beautiful. I LOVE the fabrics you used and immediately thought boy. I also love the pattern.

    Your quilt is lovely. How special to use fabric from one of your trips. As you made it, I imagine fond thoughts of your trip came to mind. He will enjoy it and always have fond thoughts of his grandma.
