Urban lattice - fabric choices

I have decided to make the baby size (36 X 48) of the Urban Lattice quilt. I never seem to have boy quilts on hand when I need one, I always have girl quilts. I'm going to use the strip on the left with the fabrics in the middle. If I get this one completed I was thinking maybe using the strip on the right with just the blue. I think the stripe will make an interesting design in the center. Time will tell if I ever get the first one completed. I really should just concentrate on the first one for now. Because while looking for fabric I came across some charm packs of Snow Days and was sidetracked.
This is the result of my sidetracking. The half square blocks are all pieced and on the design wall. Just the blocks have been sewn. I am still moving them around every time I walk by it.

Squre in a square quilt

I finished my mom's square in a square quilt!

One of the hardest things about finishing the quilt is getting it folded to fit in the box.

I used lots of tape to keep it from popping open during the trip back.
And forgot to put the backing scraps from trimming the quilt. I did open it up and put the fabric inside.
