Default Which quilting pattern would you choose?

Last week I asked for suggestions on how to quilt this and received some wonderful suggestions. Thank you!

After more practicing this weekend and a need to get this done, I've decided to keep it simple on the first quilt. Which of these would you choose for the quilt - picture from EQ below - large blocks are not exactly as they appear in the image? Thanks a lot.

I vote for #2 as it will look more like water with pools and edies. Quilt looks great.

I also like the 'water' quilting over the meandering.

I like the one which is on the left? The one that goes more horizontal like water?

I vote for the first one (looks like water) since lighthouses are near water.

In post 1 - I like the one to the right - more reminiscent of water than the meander pattern.

Cheers, K

One more vote for the water although the meander would work too.
