Okay, thought I had it all figured out but now I am not so sure! I laid the blocks out with the pinwheels, but hubby says it was too busy and i didn't have something right. I seen the pattern of the yellow and purple pinwheels but all he seen was the odd pattern in between. Make sense? Don't know if he doesn't have a quilter eye or if it really looks odd. I laid it out another way too. He liked it better but said either one was okay. So now what does everyone think on these two patterns. I promise this is the last time I will bug you all....lol. Just want to make a nice looking blankie for the baby.

Like them both but if I had a favorite it would be the top one with double pinwheels.

My vote is for the second layout. I think the pattern is Jacob's ladder.

I like both, but prefer the top.
I don't know what it is that your hubby is seeing, unless he is seeing like a "cross" shape in the blocks instead of the pinwheel. I can see that too, but that is what makes it unique! I like it!

I like the bright cheeriness of the stars, but i also like the optical illusion quality of the 4 designs I see in it. The second one is nice also :D

I've a preference for the pinwheels, too. It's very playful-looking, while the Jacob's Ladder is less so. Just my thoughts! I think you did a wonderful job choosing your colors and fabric. It'll be a very special baby quilt either way.
