    Number 1 !! Really cute quilt. Number 2, the "arrows" distract from the center blocks.

    I think #1 frames the center very nicely

    i like the way the "lines" appear to flow around the center of the first one.

    It's number 1 for me - I like that the centered is framed.

    Number one. Back off from the picture and look at the whole thing. That should help you decide.

    I like the first one - the outer blocks frame the inner block nicely. Depends on which one you like the best. I always ask my husband and then end up doing just the opposite of what he says. :0)

    How about a 3rd option -- in the 2nd quilt, rotate the corner blocks. That way the 'lines' connect.

    I like #1 as it showcases the center, but that said either one would work!!!!
