Without a doubt, I like the first scrappy one the best. I like the variety of colors and the informal look goes so well with the animals. It also makes the animals a focal point. I see just the dark green print on the second one, not the animals. The 3rd is just kind of boring. And, once again, that dark green print really shows up almost more than the animals. Well, that is just my opinion, but it's your quilt. Please post pics of the finished quilt.
