    I am making a folded flower quilt in kiddie colors for my niece. My original plan was to make a random mix of solids and prints, but I am finding the solids to be pretty intense! (This is not my favorite color palette!) I could construct the units with only the prints on the outside, which would tone down the solids, but does that make it look too busy? I keep going back and forth, one day I think one thing and the next another! I would appreciate your opinions.

    Mixing it up looks good. Nice choice of colors.

    I like the first one too.... the second one is pretty but there's nothing for the eye to "stop" on, it just flits all over the place.

    The first one is gorgeous, love the colours. :-)

    The first one had a 3D effect to me. I really love both placements, but the first one might be more fun for a kid.

    I am with everyone else. I like the mix of solids and prints. That is going to be beautiful.

    I really like the first one! I also like this pattern, you are doing great even though you don't like the colors.

    I like the first one best. By the way, where did you get this pattern? It looks like something I could do.

    Another vote for the first - there isn't enough change in the scale of the prints to make it work. The pattern is very nice, can't wait to see it build.

    I'm sure it will look nice either way but my eye tells me to go with the first configuration.

    I like your top grouping best also. The contrast between the solids and the prints make the pattern absolutely dance.
    I love the colors you're using also. It's going to be an exciting quilt.

    They are cool. I really like the first one better. The solids set off the prints nicely.

    Number one looks good....great fabric and design. Ultimately whatever you choose will be fine.

    No. 1 is by far the prettiest. Where did you get the pattern. I am very intrigged by the folded patterns and that what this looks like. ;However when I google folded flower pattern I get something totally different. Would really like the pattern source. I want to see it when it is finished.

    I think it's unanimous so far! Number one! It has more contrast and draws the eye better.
