    I'm not really fond of the chenille with the batiks. Do you have any other pale blue that you could try?

    I like this combo because the chenille has a "stripes" look that give it a little more interest than a plain fabric.
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    I like the C and turtles. The blue may be a bit intense with the softer look of the other fabric. Put up anothe rmore gentle blue and lets see it again!

    Like the idea!

    Love the chenille and the turtles, but think I'd go with a blue that has a little more green in it. Maybe a lighter shade of teal.

    I like the chenille it adds texture which is important for babies. He' s going to be staring at those turtles and the solid dark that or the brighter blue will be a nice contrast.

    I really like your combination - although a slightly brighter blue would be even better! Can't wait to see what you do with it.

    I really like the three together. The chenille will be so soft!

    Love it! I like the idea of the chenille because of the tactile feature, babies love to explore different textures. You might want to back the chenille with some thing to stabilize it. can't wait to see it finished!

    I'm with not mixing fabric types but you are on right path. A pale yellow as accent would work.

    I like it . I have used vintage chenille many times for backing on baby quilts. I love it but it is a little harder to quilt.

    I think it will be perfect for a boy quilt. I have trouble finding suitable boy fabric. These are great!

    I don't want to sound negative, but I'm not crazy about the chenille with the batik - unless as Patrice said - a backing would be cozy. I also don't care for that shade of dark blue. Just my humble opinion.

    I, too, like the idea of the chenille for the back. If you limit the quantity of the dark blue, because it's so intense, and add an accent--how about a light to medium, limey green, to add a watery look--it should work very well. And the pattern you use will make a big difference in the finished look.
