    I'm working on a tube quilt and would appreciate your opinion on which layout to use.
    These are layouts created with EQ6 software. I scanned samples of the fabric, so these are the blocks I have to work with. The resolution isn't that great, but just trying decide which layout to use.
    What do you think? I appreciate your help!

    It's really up to you, depending on the look you want to achieve!

    Another possibility you might want to try .... flip your blocks around so that the stripes match (different fabrics though) and the white space matches. You'll start with a solid block in the centre and come out in blocks around (on point) similar to the #1 version, just that it'll be continual. I know ... probably not explained well!

    #2...#1 looks fractured to me.

    And when you get the blocks done, you will discover that there are even more ways to lay them out.

    Check out some of the log cabin layouts - these blocks are adaptable to those variations.

    #1 strikes me as rather disjointed, whereas #2 is very cohesive and pleasing to look at. Love #2!

    I like #1. Option 2 looks too standard to me. I am partial to variety! I have issues (I admit it)

    I agree. You might find something you like even better.

    Personally, I love quilts that radiate from the center. Thus, my vote goes to the first one.

    Between the two I like the second.

    I agree with trying different lag cabin layouts.

    I am sorry to say that the first one hurts my eyes! It almost makes them cross if I look at it too long. I really like the second one. of course that is just my opinion which most people dont listen to especially the hubby!!!

    Thanks for the input/advice!
    It's funny, I came across the idea for #1 in a book at my LQS and really liked it!
    Layout #1 was my plan from the start; but since this is going to be a gift, maybe I should reconsider.

    How about #3. Try a pinwheel design.

    I like them both, but I must say #1 does some weird stuff to my eyes. It is like looking at on of those optical illusions but doesn't really show anything.

    I like #2 also, but this sounds like a good idea as well.
