    Which of these do you like best? The quilt is for my new grand daughter expected in July. They look better without the lines in the sashing. That's just the way I had to draw them to get the design in EQ7 even though they probably won't be pieced that way. I just haven't figured out how to export the images without the lines.

    So, which do you like best? They'll be made with a layer cake and yardage by Sandy Gervais galled Giddy.

    If the grandchild was older I would say one and i think 2 is more a baby look, don't ask why because I don't know why.

    I like that little thing you have going on with the first inner sashing on the first quilt, but I'm really not a fan (totally personal opinion) of a lot of white sashing.
    So I'll pick the second, where the pieced sashing kills/dilutes the amount of white. ;)

    I think I like NO:1 too.. The other one looks kinda busy. depends if you want the middle to show off more. then No;1 is it. if not then NO;2 is it.

    How about #1 with some color just on the squares where the sashing meets?

    so, now that you've asked, you are still in a quandary! everyone has a different idea...good luck.

    #2. For some reason it looks more like a baby quilt to me, don't know why.

    #2 looks a lot softer for a little girl.

    I like the color arrangment on two better but the pattern on one. I would do pattern 1 with more of the darker fabrics as in 2.

    I like #1 the best, like the thin sashing of color before the white.

    Okay I hope you will understand what I am going to say. I like number 1, but I am wondering what #2 would look like with out the sashing on the inside of each block, or for that matter the sashing on the outside of the smaller blocks. Just wondering and looking at all the possibilites.
