I like the second one best. I can't comment on the quilting as that is one of the hardest things for me to come up with on a quilt. It takes me from the very beginning to when it's actually time to quilt to come up with how I am going to quilt it. I generally wind up going very simple when I'm quilting.

I like the second one.

My mind went to this youtube link where she quilts using stencils. I think this would look nice in your blocks.

I like the second one best. I would probably just FMQ it as I do most of mine.

I like #2. On the first one, the center square takes away from the rest of the quilt -- like a bulls-eye.

I picture a figure 8 around the circles, then echos out from that.

#1 speaks to me. I like the center circle focus. #2 is nice, but seems more muted. I'm pretty much a straight line quilter, so no ideas here.

On #1 - the center yellow circles seem a lot brighter than the rest of them. So - like someone said - it draws my eyes like a bullseye.
