    I vote for #2 - more restfull and you can really see the pattern of the pieced block (which is lovely )- and that quilting design will really pop the whole quilt.

    I like #1 better, but I would make the setting triangles all the same color.

    I lean toward the 2nd one but would not choose tan for the solid squares. I would do the blue and put the tan along the outside as a borders.

    Have you considered combination of both ??
    Think either will be awesome.

    I really love the first one. Maybe you can do your back in a color that will show the quilting!

    I'm definitely for the second because for me the quilting makes the quilt the total package and you could do so much with that block from their monogram to a favorite flower used in their wedding.

    I'd pick number 2. Both are great, but the first one is kind of busy to me.

    Your quilt, your way. I kinda think the first may be a bit too busy for my taste and, of course, would show offf the quilting nicely. Eithe way would b vey nice, however.

    Beautiful, I like pic #1 and I am assuming #3 is your quilting plan, which sets it off beautifully! Great job planning it all out. Lucky kids.

    I like #3. It seems more peaceful and I like the blue in it.

    here is another possibility........second design w/alternate blank blocks......use beige for sashing of all, use solid blue as alternates in center and green as setting triangles on ends, but I would add a border just to confine the design, not large, but of same color as setting triangles and after all the work of piecing and quilting the body, having to flip to do the opposite borders is "easy"........JMHO
