    Design Layout

    Ok, I'm putting this quilt together for a little girl. She only wanted purple and zebra, so it's a 2 color quilt. So I layed out the blocks in a few different positions. But can't decide what would be best for a 16year old....would love the opinion of my fellow quilters. thanks

    (it's my first time uploading pics, so hopefully all 3 appear.

    I showed this to my SIL, who is visiting and we both agree that the last one, with the pinwheels, is the one that really pops the eyes. What great colors.

    My preference is No. 3 -- Love the movement of that one.

    I would vote for No. 3 also. I think a teenager would love it being more vibrant and less structured!

    I love design number 3. I think that it shows off both fabrics so well. Be sure to let us know what you decide and post pictures when you are completed with it.

    #3 was my choice...and of yours also...so I feel better. I think I'll go with that one for her.

    I like #1 and #2 for myself....maybe I'll make myself one.

    #2 or #3 would be wonderful. I have always been partial to pinwheels though.

    I think I like #2 most. Three is to busy and one would be my second choice. I think whichever you choose she will like it.

    I really like #2. The pinwheel one is cool but to much on my eyes (just my opinion)

    When you sleep under a quilt, you sleep under a blanket of love.
