Baby Quilt Possibly Taking a Different Turn

Well, I just wasn't feeling it w/the fabrics I have been working with. Perhaps it was just a matter of trying to use too many "busy" fabrics at the same time...

Anyway, I kept looking at a couple of the other fabrics I purchased awhile back, but hadn't been incorporating thus far and decided to play with them today and I think I may go with the new color scheme instead.

Here's what I've done so far.



Feels more "baby girl" to me anyway...perhaps the pinks and browns will have to wait for something when she is bigger or be used for something for her big sisters. We'll see.

Now to decide about placement...whether to alternate the different 4 patches or put a solid color square between and alternate...so many possibilities. Here are a few examples I played with earlier today. None of these incorporate putting solid squares in since I hadn't cut any at the time...

Love it.... it's so much better for a little girl than the other one you had planned. Can hardly wait to see the finished product.

By, the way, which blog is your sister?

I'm with you. Something more feminine and not so harsh. I was also rooting for some green in there with the cream and the pinks. It's getting there and looking good.

Beautiful fabrics! Yes, I think you are definitely on the right track! Oh, and I love the placement in photos 1 and 2.
