    I like the second layout better. I like the fabrics, very restful and tranquil.

    I prefer #2. Since the fabrics are neutrals, it gives more umph to the quilt. I don't think it's too busy.

    I like them both but #2 is my favourite. I love the soft muted colours as well, they have a calming effect for me. Thank you for sharing.

    I like #2. It shows the secondary pattern of the lighter colored blocks.

    I vote for two. It shows more of the slight contrast in the fabrics.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    Love number one, but two is really pretty two. Very calming color way.

    I like the first one. and I think the colors are fine. very relaxed. I tend to go too much in the other direction if you know what I mean"

    I like the fabrics. Either lay out would be fine, but if I had a choice it would be #1. Beautiful either way!

    I like no. 2, personally I like the pinwheels more than zigzag (reminds me of the 70's). Love the pinwheels best.

    I love both, but #1 makes it look longer, bigger. But both are great.

    Thank you everyone for your input. Wish I had enough material to make both, but my Husband had the final say (it's a surprise for my FIL - he wore out my MILs quilt once she passed away 20+ years ago - so I couldn't really ask him)....anyways, DH chose #1. I picked up a maroon houndstooth pattern to do the borders with and a solid maroon for the backing and binding. It looks better in person then it does in the photo's - the pictures are a wee bit off with the colouring. I like the complexity of #2, but I didn't think my FIL would like that one (sigh)

    I like both but I'd choose Nol. 1. I don't think your fabric choices are bad at all, by the way. Subtle but nice.

    I like #1 & would use a dark brown color from the print for part of the border which would really set it off

    #1 is my choice. If you want the quilt to "pop," I would add a small dark boarder. It looks to me that brown would match.

    Older eyes don't pick out patterns as easily as younger ones do. I am an NP, and I've worked a lot with the elderly. I would say either pattern would be fine, the second might stand out more -- or perhaps not depending how how good his eyesight is. The colors are very calming, and a lovely selection for an elderly man. You've done a great job! If he doesn't like it, I'll take the quilt! LOL!

    Number 2. Your fabric is wonderful. I, too, made a quilt using muted colors and hated working on it. I took a picture of it as I do with all my quilts and then put it aside. A few months later I ran across the picture and said to myself "What a great quilt".
