A little help?

I'm drawing out some designs for a baby quilt. 

These are the same pattern with different colours in different spots. 
They are not the colours that I am using though. This quilt will be 40x32"
This first drawing I did free hand trying out a design. 

I then used a ruler to define it better. I kept the brown to the side of the blue block with the green on the outside (same as 1 but the space colours are different ie: the orange/yellow vs the purple/pinkish)

I made this one take bigger "steps" by alternating the green and brown next to the blue blocks. I think this one will be easier to piece.

I think I can figure out how to piece this no matter which one I choose. 
I was looking for a step like pattern. (I dont follow patterns well- its easier for me if I make them up on paper like this)

Which one do you like better? 1, or 2, or 3?

I like number 2

I like 2 better, but I'm not sure why. I think they would all make cute quilts, though.

I like number 2 better also. I like to sketch designs out too. Even when I buy a quilt pattern I never really follow it anyways. I always end up veering off the pattern and doing my own thing.

I like #3 :) I don't think you can go wrong, though, Debbie - it'll turn out great no matter what pattern you go with.
