    Ok, I am making 2 baby quilts at the same time, cut both out at same time and sewed them together, literally, together. I had to unsew a couple of blocks cause I mixed up the fabrics. Anyway, one of the gals coming to the baby shower on Sunday had her baby in September and I feel like I should give her her quilt Sunday morning before the shower when she sees me give this quilt to our friend, who's baby is due next month. So..... 2 at the same time, both need to be finished by Sunday, and I work and I have plans that will keep me from doing any sewing Monday and Tuesday. I think I have chosen but want to see what ya'll say.

    Choice #2

    The strips will end up horizontally against the quilt if I choose this one Choice #1

    I prefer the green, the stripes make it too busy in my opinion.

    The green one...you won't have to worry about it looking "wonky" if the strip doesn't run exactly straight...(oops sorry, I was being a little anal wasn't I)..anyway...I still think I like the green one better. :lol:

    Hmmmmmm I had been leaning toward the stripes, give it a different look, but maybe I should look closer at using the green one. I don't want it to be too busy.

    They both look wonderful. But, I'm leaning towards the stripes. I don't think that it looks too busy.

    I like the first one, but both are adorable. What pattern did you use or was it a kit?

    I really like the green. I believeit makes the other fabrics in the quilt stand out far better than the stripe!

    Both are pretty but the green is GREAT.........
