I am having a great time making these blocks, and the celestial theme is so fun! But I still have a lot of questions I need to answer for myself before I get to the end product.
Size: I am still trying to decide what size to make it. I want it to be useful for an infant but also be big enough that it can be used in childhood. Because of this, I haven't decided how many blocks I will use in the top, or if I will use borders to help get it to the right size. I am leaning toward using nine blocks and maybe adding a border. I still can't decide which nine blocks to use. I have made 12 but don't love them all or feel like some "fit." At this moment I'm leaning toward remaking two.
Backing: I am so torn about which backing to choose. I'm leaning toward the first option, but I worry about the dark color fading with washing, and a baby quilt needs to be washed a lot! I want to stick with the sky theme and I don't want it to be too juvenile so it can be used into childhood if. I asked my girls which one they would pick, and of course they did not pick the same one!
What do you think? Help me decide! Which one would you choose and why?
