Default Help with choosing a pattern for Low volume fabrics for baby quilt

My daughter in law chose the fabric line called Ballerina fusion. The darkest shade in the collection was not included. Her nursery will be neutral tones.

I am looking for a baby quilt pattern for these low volume fabrics using the 9 half yard cuts that I have. I have a few she found on Pinterest. I wanted to get your thoughts as well if a pattern jumps out at you seeing this soft color palette.
Thank you!

I was using up some paler homespuns that in many ways was a similar palette. I just framed squares and stacked them in diagonal rows, each diagonal row one set of fabrics. I alternated framed rows with solid squares of fabric. I should try and get a picture of that one, it's been used hard a couple years now but my son has it.

Your picture as you have it is pretty much the look I got on purpose!

I think that what you have laid out would make a pretty quilt

I agree with both of the above

Pretty fabrics! Here is another pattern for you that might work. I used fat quarters for the 9 inch squares and a white tone on tone for the triangles. The half yard cuts would work too.

Maybe try and look at patterns for shabby chic quilts.

or low volume quilts.

I love this soft palate for your baby quilt! I think you will be able to achieve what you are looking for even though right now with all the fabrics separate you can't see it real well. These colors rock all together!

I just discovered the Boomerang pattern which might look striking with this subtle color pallet.

It might have been someone here that posted something about it.

You might consider an around-the-world pattern going for an hombre effect fading in and out from darker to lighter.

It's fun to brainstorm this! The fabrics are beautiful.
