Default 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.

What a great quilt!!! No, I don't think it's too girly at all.

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.
