I made baby quilts for 2 DGDs according to my abilities at the time. Now, I am making their sister's baby quilt. The original quilts had square blocks. I just saw a quilt here on the QB that snowballed the blocks and I like the look even better. Should I make the new quilt with the snowballs or make it like the sisters' quilts with square blocks? The pics are not the actual pattern. The hearts are actually antique embroidered animals and the print is red/white farm animals.

Snow blocks. IMO. The new babby needs its own quilt.

I'd go with the snowball so they'd have 2 different quilts. Who's to say which one is the cutest, they're both nice in their own way.

It's fine to use a different pattern. Every child is unique, so why shouldn't every child's quilt be unique?

I think the snowball would be fine. You should advance your quilts as you learn new techniques. So the quilts are different, so will be the children.

I would go with the snowballs, so there is a little difference between the 2 quilts.

Snowballs. Please share when finished. I have a quilt made from embroidered animal blocks and I love to see how others are done.
