Hello quilting fellows!

During the last 6 months, I have been been working on a grandmother's flower garden. There are about 100 flowers, made from 1 inch hexagons. Before I make the last 20 or so flowers, it's time to determine the setting! I have two different settings in mind:

Setting 1 is the random version

Setting 2 is the colour graded version, both in the flowers and in the centers

What do you think? I'm curious about all your opinions, please, let me know what you think!

I like the random version WAY better than the other one.  The random version is more appealing to the eye.

I'll add another vote for the random version, but go with your heart, 'cuz it's your quilt!

One is less than three.

So, random it is!

Thanks for voting in my little poll, your opinions are highly appreciated. When I look at the pictures, I agree with you.
Plus, it makes choosing the colors for the remaining flowers much easier: random  Wink

It will take some time to finish this, I'm thinking about handquilting it. I'll surely post it, when it's done, to show you the final outcome.

Thanks again!
