Playing with Blocks

I finished sewing the blocks for the baby quilt I'm making,
but cannot decide how to lay these blocks out for the quilt.

Do I lay them out in groups of four of the same blocks?



I really like how the centers look like hearts in a ring.




Or do I lay them out in a totally random setting?





My eye jumps so much with these random settings,
so I am leaning to the more controlled setting.

These blocks went together so quickly using this tutorial.


Hopefully it will be a completed baby quilt soon!

Happy Quilting!

Wow Great blocks!! and so cheerful in this long dreary winter! I like the blocks in groups of four but then I like some things orderly. The random arrangement is fun too. Thanks for the link I need to sew 4 baby quilts this year so far.
have a great week

So colorful and happy. I'm a beauty in chaos kinda gal so the random really strikes my fancy.

I'm such a scrappy quilter that I am drawn to the random blocks. But I know you prefer something with a little "more order." I do love the happy fabric. A big departure from all the reproduction I normally work with.

As a quilter, I found myself trying to "understand" the groups of four but was able to simply enjoy the random setting. The baby won't care, so do what makes you happy.

For me I love the random settings. There is just something very cheerful about the randomness. I'm sure the baby won't care one way or the other! The fabrics are very cute.

That's a great block. I vote for the random look.

Lovely blocks. Although I love scrappy quilts, the order and hearts in the non-scrappy version I find more attractive.

Just to be different!
