Baby Boy Quilt

I took a break from my Schnibble project (which seems to go on and on and on) to make a baby quilt with left-overs from a previous project.  This was easy and went together quickly.  I'm not going to border it -- it is 40" square at present.  It needs to be backed, tied, and bound.

I may have mentioned earlier that a group of us has committed to having one child-size or baby-size quilt to donate to the local hospice by early September.  I had already made a quilt for an adult male and had a few ideas for a baby quilt and decided on this one.  I need to get the floss for tying and make the binding and am thinking the aqua rather than the brown.  Responsible opposing viewpoints will be entertained!

I like aqua. I think brown might be too adult. It's a very nice quilt, by the way!

I vote for aqua, it's a sweet quilt.

I like the aqua idea as well. Funny, but I've been thinking about making a quilt just like this one. I like the simplicity.

I'd vote, but I'm not responsible. : )
I do like the quilt, though. It doesn't look like it came from leftovers. Very nice!

I vote for the aqua and brown plaid if you can find it - cut on the bias... It is adorable!

Cute quilt! I'd choose brown because it doesnt have a border it will frame the quilt a bit.
But aqua will look nice as well! ;-)

I'm a big aqua fan - I often use this design for baby quilts - it looks effective but is relatively simple - the last one I made was in bright green, bright yellow and white
