    I make a crib set and cant decide whether I should keep the colors apart or mix them.
    What do you think?
    Thanks for looking
    Granny

    oh my...just realized by looking at the third pic that I have right and left ones. can something be done to avoid that?

    I like them mixed although you do loose that secondary large pinwheel. Very pretty.

    I keep looking back and forth and can't decide. I like them both.

    Such cute blocks. Love the colors/fabrics you chose. I like them all together to get that secondary pinwheel effect. You could make two quilts and have a spare. Add some borders if you want them bigger. Baby and mom are going to love them!

    thank you. Keeping the colors apart would eliminate the problem that they do not turn the same side. How about using the darker for the quilt and the bright for the curtain of the crib (only one row at the bottom or so)..............or vis versa?

    That would be an excellent idea. The blue as the quilt.

    I like them both ways, but I agree when mixed you lose one of the pinwheels.

    I like the first one, the green with the blue in the center. However, all three are pleasing to the eye.

    thank you all and sorry for posting a question and then going to bed but is was 2 a.m. over here :oops:
    I think I go with the bright colors inside the crib and the dark outside. Or the other way around, as I have to make quite a few more of the pinwheel I have time to think it over.
