Default I need a quick baby quilt that looks complicated!

I just received an invite to a baby shower that is only 5 days away. Can you recommend a pattern that is easy but looks like it took a lot of time?

The fastest for me would be a rail fence in 3 or 4 coordinating fabrics. I would strip-piece sets, then cut into squares. After piecing the center I might add a border (or 3) out of remaining fabrics.

A DP9 would take me a little longer (have to create 9-patch blocks, cut them, then reassemble) but it looks complicated.

Warm Wishes is another one that would take me a little longer, but it's really easy to do with a focus fabric and two solid colors.

This is maybe not what you had quite in mind - there are lots of gorgeous baby panels that look amazing with trapunto and some lovely borders.

MSQC put up a pattern a bit ago called The Merry Go Round quilt. It looks kind of like the Garden Maze pattern but is really simple if you watch Jenny's youtube video.

The classic "looks hard but is easy" is the D4P. But why does it need to look complicated? Simple can be really pretty too, just letting the fabrics have the spotlight. A simple 9 patch with prints alternated with white would be really sweet.
