    I'm not sure which way I like better. Opinions please!


    Option 1. This has the 'darks' going the same way.

    Option 2. This has the 'lights' and 'darks' making rows.

    I like the first option with the darks all going the same way.

    I like option 2. The rows are nicely defined with contrast.

    The second one will give you a striped effect. I guess it depends on what you are looking for. I agree with Ruth can we see one from further back.

    My area is pretty small. I will see what I can do tonight.

    #2. Scrappy is good, especially when there's a little pattern to it.

    I'm not sure. How are you going to quilt it? I am kinda leaning to the strip effect.

    What I really want to do is a coffee cup panto. 8) But what I will probably end up with is a meander. :-) I think with black thread.

    I would make the stripes or strips laid out looking like a diamond...
    Then do a coffee cup pantograph in the center...
    Quilting swirls like steam rising from the cups...
    Oh well, just my 2 stitches...

    The coffee cup panto would look good with those colors. :-) Either way you lay it out it will be really cute.

    After seeing the second set of pics I'm less sure than I was at first. I lean toward the stripes. Black quilting would be dynomite!!! Either way, a lovely quilt. I would be proud to call it my own.

    Boy I don't really know. They are so different. Isn't it funny what a difference it makes. I don't think you can go wrong with either one.

    I like the stripes, but I think the suggestion about making diamonds with the darks might be just the right touch.
