    Thanks everyone, I decided, here's my final draft.

    I appreciate the feedback on which of my 2 designs to use on this thread:
    http://www.quiltingboard.com/picture...t-t207990.html

    I thought about, and decided to "mix" them, and now I'm very happy with the result. Here's the layout, and how the quilting will look on the pieced front, and on the solid back.

    I had a few PM's about how I did this on the computer, so in case anyone else is curious, the quilt I designed in EQ7 (Electric Quilt) and then I imported the image into Art and Stitch, where I can overlay my quilt motifs onto the image.

    Anyway, thank you all so much for helping me choose, I'm in a bit of a time crunch to get this one done and I was just not able to decide!

    Beautiful quilt choice, as well as quilting. It would take me years to do this. Years. They are sure to treasure it forever.

    That's a winner!
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    The quilt will be gorgeous. thanks for this info... i have EQ5 and thought i needed to upgrade to 7, but, apparently, you can't do the overlays in 7 either.

    Yes, you can! Design your motif or use one of theirs, and then put it in layer 3 (I think). I'm sure it's not as easy as with A&S though.

    cjtinkle, I love your design, especially with the quilting motifs.

    Yes, that's correct, you CAN do this with EQ, quilt motifs go on layer 3... and I'm pretty sure this was possible back in version 5 as well. It isn't as advanced at this as Art and Stitch, that's a quilting design (not piecing) program, but definitely doable.
