Which layout????

Working with the octagons...which layout do you prefer?
I am in two minds...
as octagons and dots...
or floating snowballs????
 Lots of fun though.
We had a great time with DS at a lunch to celebrate his 21st birthday...
the most beautiful spot...
Bistro Molines in the Hunter Valley...perfect!

What a great part of the world to celebrate his birthday. Nothing like great food, wine and company! Floating looks nice, but I think it's one of those quilts where any layout is going to look fabulous.

Lovely spot for your luncheon...glad you had a nice time......tough choice for the layout...think I like the octagon and square version myself....either way the colours are just 'so you'...it's really lovely, Alison.....will we see it finished at Nundle???...lol...

Shiralee Stitches said...

Maybe I wasn't very clear when I look back at what I said, I mean the version in the last photo, the largest layout you have pictured....not sure what that one is called...they're both hexagons and squares...derr...it must be late for me!!!...lol...

Cathy said...

Ooh, know thats a difficult decision cause they are both gorgeous. The floating snowballs are fabulous, but so are the octagons and dots. I'm no help! Perhaps you could make two of them!!
Looks like you had a divine day for his 21st and what an amazing setting. xo

Octagon and dots. Looks like you had a great day for DS's day. Isn't the HV looking great at the moment, so beautiful and green.

My vote is floating, but I don't think you can wrong!

Sharon - Lilabelle Lane said...

Either way you are on a winner but I do really like the floating one

Marg said...

They both look great, I do prefer the one on the left. I agree you can't go wrong which ever way you choose.

Janice said...

I'm not sure which is which, but I like the large layout best. It looks like you had the best day for the 21st.

Siobhán said...

I'm no help--they're both gorgeous. Here's something to remember--you can't go wrong since they're both lovely. ;)

Happy birthday to your son! What a beautiful spot for a 21st!

Gingerpatch said...

Happy birthday to your man. Doesn't seem that long ago that we were watching them graduate and now they are 21. Time is too quick sadly.

Sorry I'm no help with the layout they are both beautiful

broderie said...

Lovely spot for a long lunch for the 21st birthday !
Your octagons look good either way I think, have you done them all over papers?

Nyla said...

I prefer the small squares to be on point. Really love this pattern and your lovely use of fabrics. What size octagons are they? I'm sure it will be lovely either way.

Happy birthday for your son.

LuAnn said...

I think I prefer the floating snowballs. Either way it is going to be a great quilt. You do live in the most beautiful part of the world and always have the most gorgeous photos to show!

Kayly said...

Happy Birthday to your son. It does look like a beautiful spot for lunch.
Either layout looks great, but I'm voting for the floating snowballs if that's the one with the dotty fabric on point. Great colours!

Kayly said...

Sorry I take that back. The dotty fabric is not on point. Oh it's just too early in the morning for my eyes to focus straight!

Julia said...

I love the floating snowballs the best...but what ever you choose will be lovely.

I like the squares set as diamonds. Looks like a wonderful venue for a special occasion, congratulations to your son.

Chocolate Cat said...

Octogon and dots I think but it looks beautiful either way! Looks like a lovely lunch and a happy boy!

Susan said...

I think octagons and dots for me. Looks like a lovely spot to celebrate. Good on you Mum and Dad too!

Heather said...

I love this quilt both ways but prefer the layout where the squares are on point. In either case it is a great quilt!

Too many eggs said...

i m for the floating snowballs, looks great so fresh and colourful. Looks like a great spot for Lunch....

Marina said...

I'll throw my two cents in too, since you asked! I prefer the layout where the small squares are on point. It gives more of a sense of movement to the quilt. It's looking lovely!

Mrs Dibble said...

My vote goes to floating snowballs!

Tracey @ozcountryquiltingmum said...

Like it either way and love the little red headed rascally looking boy..who grew up quite well. see you on saturday!

Janet said...

Both settings look great, I never even thought of an alternative. You have some great snowball fabrics in there.
What an amazing spot for lunch, very beautiful view.
