After counting about half the votes, it was pretty clear that Quilt #1 is the winner.
The half square triangles along the outer edge of the pieced blocks will be scrappy. They just happen to be drawn in in the same colors and I didn’t take the time to change them. No doubt it doesn’t look terribly difficult but yesterday I wrote the pattern and it’s amazingly easy! If time allows and if life doesn’t get too crazy around here the next few months, I may come up with an optional pieced border. I need to make the top to test the instructions and there are several things that have to be done before I can start it. I’ll give you plenty of notice before we do it. I think it will work quite nicely as a Quilt for an Hour type project. More info will be posted later.
