I need help with Christmas Lights!!

If you are here for the Online Quilt Festival, please look at the next post...


I finally finished piecing the Bonnie Hunter Chrsitmas Lights mystery quilt. I have laid it out on the floor of my family room (I don't have a design wall, yet!) and would like you to help me pick how to lay it out in the quilt. Here are the options: we will call the first one "#1"
We will call this one, "#2".


And, here is "#3":

I hope to put these blocks together later this week so please let me know by Thursday at supper time which one you like and I will decide that night...

  1. I vote for layout number 3 - it is going to be a beautiful quilt no matter which layout is used!

  2. I like one, as it is different and unusual

    cheers

  3. My vote is for #2 - they are all good but that one leads by a nose. LOL

  4. I like them all but if I had to choose?....I'd say number 2.

  5. Probably number 3 but not as much as Bonnie's layout.

  12. I like number 3. It reminds me of a Native American design.

  14. I like the first one. The other two show up the red a lot more, and I like the overall colors of the first one the best. They are all terrific and whichever layout you use will be wonderful!

  15. See? Look at your votes- they are all great! So it depends what you are going for. #3 seems more traditional, #1 & #2 a little more unique. I like 3.

  19. I like #2. No, wait... #3. Or maybe #1...

    Kudos to you for coming up with 3 wonderful layouts!

  20. As others have said, any of the three layouts would produce a wonderful quilt. My own preference is for #2. It reminds me of a barn-raising setting for log cabin blocks, which is my favorite LC setting. I like the four "legs" that point from the center out to the corners. My two cents' worth. -- Lydia in MO

  21. I like 3 the best, second best is 2.

    Awesome work, any of them will look great.

  22. I tried all those too - via EQ - much easier than crawling on the floor at my age! All are very nice but I prefer #3. I almost made mine like that (had two rows put together) but instead separated the star blocks from the modified D9P blocks (in red) and made two quilts instead. I posted them on http://itsthecatshouse.blogspot.com/2009/10/christmas-lights-times-2.html. I would love to know what you think!

  23. I like #3 best but #2 was a close second.

  24. I absolutely LOVE number 1, it is my favorite! It just looks so clever!

  26. I like layout #3 - it moves the eye around the quilt.

  27. I vote for number #3...and as everyone else says...
    They're all great!

  28. I think that #2 is my favorite. I would change the corners on the 4 blocks right in the middle from the gold fabric to red so that there is some red in the centre of the quilt.

  29. I am voting for #3.

  30. They are all unique but I like number one. It is very different. Good luckon deciding.

  31. Be careful asking for input... it looks like you have lots of votes ---
    I am fluctuating between 2 & 3. But, 2 will be my final vote. Thanks for sharing these.
