    I think the chenille would be a wonderful textural accent to the batiks. Babies love texture and color. (IMO just a speck of red somewhere might not hurt.) He would feel as well as see the quilt. Since blue and turtles really says "little boy", I think he will love it. Post a pix so we can see what you do.

    I like the turtle and the solid, I'd use the chenille on the back but using on the front would give the baby a texture to play with.

    I like the combination. The turtle outlines are kind of "bumpy" like the chenille. I think you did great and can't wait to see the finished baby quilt.

    I like it. What pattern are you using? I, too, think an accent color would be nice (like the green or yellow someone else mentioned).

    I think that it is a great combo of blues and fabrics and would make a great modern looking quilt. Go for it and send a picture in when done.

    I like the Color combo, but wonder if the chennile will work with the Batics, Batics usally have no give to them al all, where the chennile has alot. But I look forward to the finished quilt.

    I agree the solid blue seems not quite right...the turtles and chenille will be great!

    Love your fabrics! The chenille for the back will be fun. Would look for another couple of fabrics to incorporate as well. Maybe another lighter blue (possibly a shade or two darker than the chenille and some other accent color. This will be an adorable quilt.

    I really like it, I recently did a quilt with chenille, and it looked great. I did a simple 4 patch with every block chenille, was worried about quilting the chenille but no problem, I put a simple star in each chenille block. I did not have to back the chenille. Note that cutting caused a dust storm in my sewing room.
