    I like the both but for a baby I'd use the lighter one

    I think mixing them would make a more interesting quilt.

    I think you could use both of these and it would give the quilt more interest.

    I like the lighter one/second because it feels more upbeat. Just personal preference though.

    My monitor must be off. I see grays of varying colors. But the one on the right is brighter. Are you planning to add other colors to the quilt?

    If only one, use the one on the right, but both would be nice in the quilt.

    I like the first one because it blends nicely. The 2nd has a bit too much contrast, IMHO. Either would be very nice for a 'boy' quilt.

    I like the lighter one. How about the darker one on the back side of the quilt. Make it reversible.

    Both are nice, The second would be more for a baby, but you could do a border from the first for contrast.

    My first thought was that the first one looked nicer, however, mixing them together would make a great quilt and even if you use only the first one there is still a lot of contrast. In the end though, it's your quilt, although I've had times too when my brain doesn't want to decide. Can't wait to see the finished quilt.

    Again, both are nice but I prefer the one on the right.
    Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, WINE IN THE OTHER, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO, what a ride!"

    I like them both about the same. One is more muted, one has more contrast, but I like them the same
