    I came back from the LQS with more lovely fat quarters. With a D9P already set in my head i started cutting my squares. I seem to be tearing myself into two sides that cant come to an agreement. so maybe some extra eyes can help me.

    I liked the gray fabric with those vines but i think the b&w squares look better as the main squares with the black ones. maybe
    So i think i like option 2 but i liked showcasing that gray in option 1. but i think option 2 flows better.... LOL see my perdicament?
    Extra professional eyes like yall would help from a different view! Whats your opinions?

    I like #1. The black print in the smaller amount gives more movement and interest to the blocks. It is just too overpowering in the larger size. Nice colors!

    What she said. Plus, I like the black print next to the black solid better than the gray.

    I think #1 but agree it is difficult to choose ... maybe if you had all the blocks on a design wall, take a photo, walk away and look at it again. kinda hard to tell with only a handful of blocks

    But it will turn out wonderful ... D9P is one of my faves, and any quilt in b/w/r gets my approval.

    I like them both as well.
    Option 1 overall in the finished quilt would give a softer calmer look with Option 2 having a little more active kind of look.

    Guess it would depend on the outcome look you want. Either way looks great and would work just fine.

    Not a professional opinion here! I like #2 best. I think the gray in #1 stands out too much.

    Both are beautiful.

    My personal preference is #1 just because it has smaller amounts of the 'busier' fabric.

    I like option 1 for all the reasons above

    It this were my quilt, I would change the light rectangles to red. Probably lots of different red prints with a variety of scale to the prints. You have mostly med/med dks as the greatest % of the quilt.
