So my son is 5 months old and I wanted to give him a unique quilt just for himself. But it is so hard to find cute fabrics for boys - until I found these two. It`s Michael Miller and we are both in love with it.

I only quilted along the squares, because I did not want the batting to get too flat. The backside is a very soft black cotton with the sightest hint of a shimmer in it.

Oh yes, it is so difficult to find nice fabric for boys.... Sad
But you did a great job combining those fabrics, it is bright but boyish.
I like it!!  Cheesy

awesome fabrics!  I don't know how many 30 year old quilts you've encountered, but We have one that was stiched as yours is, and eventually the batting came loose of the seams and is now bunched in each square.  I believe it was like that 10 years ago too...    But that could have  a lot to do with the washing method used on it... But I just thought I'd let you know about that, incase you wanted it to last forever. 
I love that quilt though! and your baby is super cute!
