    Okay, I am still working on the sampler but think I need to step away from it for a few. I get stressed...lol. Anyway thought I would make a quilt for my cousin who is going to have a baby boy in June. I had this fabric just waiting for an occasion. I got it clearanced so that makes it even better. Anyway here is what I need. The first pic is the material. The next ones are different variations of how to put it together. This is where you all come in. Which of the pics do you think would look the best? I kind of like them all but just wanted some input. I have all the pieces cut just waiting to assemble.

    The fabric I am using.

    Hmm tough choice. They both look good. But I think I'd go with the first one. More symmetrical. Either way, it's going to be great for that new baby boy. :)

    If you turned each centre block around one, it would form a pinwheel effect?? that might look good too!! :D

    Love your fabric choices alot - cute or what!!! :D :D

    I love your backing fabric! Have you decided which way you're going to go with it?

    I like the first one also, I think white on the border with a small print or dot would look nice for binding.

    I was going to go with the first block too, then I thought of what Izy wrote and decided to give it a spin. I tried it and I agree I like it! Doing it that way makes a golden star. This is what I believe I will go with. Thanks for everyones input, always makes you look at the broader picture with others opinions that you may not have seen on your own. Thanks to you too, Izy.
    And your welcome beachlady...lol. This forum is awesome isn't it?

    I added a pic of how I am going to do it but it is really blurry, I think the camera is dying or the batteries, not sure which one yet. Hope you can get the idea though!
