    I vote for 1, because it appeals to me the most....has some masculine elements, which I think are good for a wedding quilt.

    Which of these 2 quilts do you prefer, keeping in mind that the attached representation of the quilting would be the same for either one, only the quilting on the solid tan blocks would really pop if I chose that layout instead of the first one... although I'm leaning towards the first one.

    Thank you in advance!
    They are all so beautiful that I don't think you can go wrong with any of them, but I do lean toward #1

    The trend today, with the kids is towards simplicity. I like the idea that the eye will have two places to land and consider, both the quilted block and the design block. I vote for two.

    For me the large empty blocks of 2 are overwhelming to your pieced blocks, so I go for #1.

    I believe UFOs are like scraps, ferns and dust bunnies. Once you get two, they send spores out into the air and more just happen anywhere the spores meet.
