Vote!

It's your civic duty. You must vote. I have quite a few candidates, but I'm letting you vote for both the ones you like and the ones you don't like, whichever you'd prefer. (I often feel it would be a better use of my vote to vote against someone then for someone else. ) Some I've shown the block and a few examples of what it might look like; consider that you are voting on the block, and I'll later ask which design I should do :) Others you see the whole quilt. These are in no particular order.

Number 1: Simple blocks with a sashing. I'd probably do most of this as strips, not individual blocks as the lines show.


Number 2: I like this one for it's simplicity. It wouldn't have as many blocks as the lines show. Ignore the lines (from here on out, that's just a good idea...)

Number 3: Made of two more complicated blocks.
Number 4: Very similar to one above but no sashing.
Number 5: This could be arranged other ways, just an idea...
Number 6: Lots of ways to arrange this one.

Number 7: Note this also uses the yellow, the others would just be backed in yellow.
Number 8: This one looks like it uses the yellow, but that's actually green.
Number 9: I'm a little worried this block is too hard for me...





I have allergies/sinus issues right now and it sucks. So having you all choose my quilt will make me very happy.

Also- what size do you make for a baby? I can't remember what I did last time. Is a 40" square big enough for a lay-upon blanket? Too big?

OOh! I like #2 and #3. And 40" x 40" is plenty big -- most newborns are about 20" or so...

I like 1 and 6. I also have a book of baby quilt designs if you would like to borrow it, and not have to think about a design/size/etc.

I REALLY like #3, the small rectangles in the block add just enough to make it look more 'geometric art' than 'traditional quilt blocks.' Unless that absolutely not what you are going for.
I also like #2
#7 looks too busy for me, in any arrangement, even though there are less pieces than the #6 block. it must be the addition of a 5th color. or the fact that I don't usually like purple and yellow together.

I vote for #1 and #2, and unvote for #7.

I'm anti-Angela. I don't like 1 or 2 and I like 7, Quadrant III. Maybe because it has the yellow I picked.

My eye keeps getting drawn towards #3, but I also like #1 and #2. I can't wait to see what you choose and how it turns out :)

Hope you feel better soon so you can get started on this masterpiece!
