    help me decide baby quilt layout

    I had this put all together and realized it looked like 4 swastikas. While I know that is still a good luck symbol in some cultures, I couldn't see it in this particular baby's quilt. Please let me know which arrangement would be best for a baby boy. I can make extra blue blocks, but I am out of the one yellow fabric.

    I would make more blue ones. And put the yellow ones on the back side. Buy some solid yellow to go with them.

    pictures 4 and 5 look the same to me, just different order, but same pattern

    What if you took picture 4 (or5) and switched the last two rows. in other words, make one row going vertical, and the next one going horizontal, then vertical, then horizontal.

    Voting for #1 also - gives the impression of woven strands. Nice sunny happy colours!

    All your arrangements look great, and it still amazes me how you can get such different patterns by the moving of a few blocks. Whatever arrangement you decide on, it is going to be a beautiful quilt. Thanks for sharing.
    A home is built of peace and love,
    and not of wood and stone,
    a place where happiness lives
    and memories are sewn.

    IMHO, I like #4 best, but it's what you like. If you want more blue, add more and put the yellow in, but not equal amounts.

    I like the second one. It gives it a more modern look. But it looks like I am the odd one here!
