    I think it is a very nice guy quilt and either layout looks nice. I favor 1 but just slightly. I actually think quilts with more suddle colors are in right now.I also vote for a dark brown border or dark brown binding and back or medium brown back. No. 1 also oozes peace to me.

    Since it's going to be for a gentleman, I like #2. It looks more like a guy thing, blocks. The first one I love, but I think that layout is too soft and femine. But that's only an opinion. Good luck on your choice.

    love both but my older eyes are more comfortable with #1. which ever you decide will be a wonderful, thoughtful and welcomed gift. my husband is 89 and took his nap today with a quilt covering him.

    I vote for the second arrangement because I like the way it draws the eye from the lightest 'crosses' to the darker ones. Rail Fence is a great old pattern but #2 is more visually interesting. The subtle colors give the top a lovely heirloom look.

    I like both, #1 would be my first choice. If you wanted to add more contrast could you stay in the same color family but use a deep brown shade to border it and a dark brown decorative stitch to quilt the cream shade? Just a thought, whatever you decide it will be a beautiful quilt and he will feel the love in it!

    Both layouts are great, but I really like #1. The fabrics you chose are Perfect for a guy quilt!

    I like the first layout as the eye follows the zig zag. Very "in" right now...and the colors are nice and peaceful.

    I like the second one - I don't often see the rail fence laid out like that. I see light, medium and dark. A dark border will pull the dark out of the quilt. He will love it.

    They would both make nice quits. I think no.1 is my choice if I were to make this.

    Both are pretty. My vote is number 2, I have never seen that design.

    I love the soft colors and both layouts! I think if I had to pick a favorite, I would pick #1.

    For some reason No. 1 seems more fitting for a man.
