    I have been playing with the scraps from the old moose quilt:

    I love the scrappy personally. But, I think the moose blocks show up better with the green chain blocks. Either way, I like your quilt. It's earthy. And I have a few guys in my life that would really like that it is masculine.

    I like them all! It depends on what look you want. #1 features a scrappy look, # 2 features the chain and # 3 features the fussy cuts.

    It looks like a "9-patch Pizzazz" by Judy Sisneros or very similar - check her book out - I have made about 3 of these types of quilts - it is great for showing off fabric motiff - If you thought of this yourself then you should write a pattern for it. It is lovely.

    I think all 3 are very nice but I would vote for #3. It shows off your moose blocks. Beautiful.

    I'm voting for number 1, but as you can tell, it's each man/woman to his own taste. It's wonderful any way you choose.

    I like all three of them.
    To me the deciding factor is how prominent you want the moose fabric to be. It is most visible in the green one, less so in the other chain one and least obvious in the first one.
