Vote, Please?

Option 5

Option 6

Option 1

Option 2

Option 3

Option 4

I made 16 blocks and am contemplating a setting for them. I photographed four options, then two more. That's why the numbering (above) is funny. Would you like to tell me which setting you prefer? I'm just curious what YOU would do with these blocks.

This is what is going to happen to this quilt: it will be hand delivered to some baby or child in Panama! In fact, I hope it will make its way to the hospital in which I was born. Yes, I was born in Panama and lived there for 2.5 years. Now someone I know is planning a trip there; I asked if she could take along a quilt or two. I have my fingers crossed that my quilt(s) will end up at the hospital where I took my first breath.

Now whether that alters how you vote, I don't know. Just thought I'd share that story.... so, which design do you like best for this little quilt, for a baby in Panama, for a baby at "my" hospital??

I choose either 4 or 2, leaning more towards 4.

I like option 6

Lazy Gal Tonya said...

I like 2 with that really strong diagonal and it doesn't have any "chunky" bits. isn't it fun to play with all the different arrangements?

Joyce said...

Hard decision. i think option 6 but I like them all.

Tracey in CT said...

hehehe...I did this same thing with the contrary wife blocks, and in the end, I couldn't decide, so I made 5 or 6 all in different settings.

I like the zig zags, but horizontally. My absolute favorite is the X in the middle (number 4).

4 and 6

Karen said...

Amazing that there are so many combinations possible. Like them all, but especially 2 and 6.

*jumps up and down wildly*

2! Pick 2!

Kate said...

I like 2 and 4-- both are a little unusual and I think would be fun to look at over and over. Thanks for the inspiring layouts!

Darcie said...

I really like #2...and #6 is a close second.

What a lucky baby! And a pretty fine story. Ah...the circle of life.

Good luck with your set-up for the show. I think it's very clever of you to have Tonya's words of wisdom close by. So many of us get caught up in the "showy-ness" of quilting.

Option 1. Welcome to the group called "Indecision" LOL.

It's really cute, though, any way!

BTW, I like to see almost your whole face behind that machine.

Jeanne said...

Okay, I've changed my mind a couple of times already. I think I'm going to choose option 6. They all look great, though.

I quite like #6 and #2

Lucy said...

Knitted Gems said...

I vote for option 2!

Lynne in Hawaii said...

I like 4 and 6. Four is WOW. However, all are gorgeous!

Sue in western WA said...

I think I like #4 the best but it's a hard call!

Anonymous said...

Two or six.

Beth said...

oh HOW can you pick? I think I will buck the crowd and go for FIVE! :::grin::: maybe I'm a maverick after all..hehehehe

Janet said...

Definitely 6!!!

Mary said...

Definitely #4

BrendaS said...

Option 2, because I like the movement, altho they're all great!

maggie said...

Option 6 stands out for me.

paula, the quilter said...

#2 and #5. I love the movement in both of these. The one thing I don't like about #5 is the one longish chunky bit.

Annie said...

Option 2 is my favorite!

Chookyblue said...

I like 1 or 4.........isn't it fun playing and then getting help to decide.......

Malagueta said...

I've been back and forth several times, but option four is the one that really sticks with me.

Pat said...

I like option 6

Buffie H said...

I like stars so number 4 was top of the list for me, then I read further about it's destination and that sealed my choice. Number 4. The big red cross just seems appropriate to go to a hospital.

Mind you... they're all lovely and any layout would be gratefully received.
