I'd go with variation 2. The different fabrics still look scrappy, but I like the definition of the design that grouping them by color/value provides.
I love both but the one with the definition of the chevrons looks better.
I like them both - but I do think Variation 2 has more focus. It really is personal preference :) I know that doesn't help!
Ditto everyone else like them both and these are awesome fabrics. If it was my quilt I would go with Variation 2 as it just has more of the look I like. Good luck!
Love your display of fabrics and the pattern. I'm sure I would love either option, but would probably pick #2 if it were me.
I'm with everyone else. Both are nice but I like 2 as well.
I like # 2 better.
Variation 2. By the way, you know that it's not safe for babies to sleep under quilts, right?
Version #2 caught my eye.
Thanks for the input everyone!
Love your 'final answer' - it works!
You always have to go with your gut and what you like! And love the top it looks awesome.
Looks great! Love your choices
It looks lovely and glad you went with your choice instead of going with the flow. You'll like it better that way
I love it :)
Love it. Great job!
Love it- looks wonderful!
Wonderful finish! It will be well loved:-)
