Help me decide …

We have a long weekend up here in Canada this coming weekend. I’ll be spending some time working on a couple of new pillows. Here are my fabrics:

mom-fabrics - Copy

I fell in love with the multi-coloured print, then chose the coordinating fabrics. Below are a couple of layout options. The multi-coloured print is represented by black in the diagrams. I only have a fat quarter of the lime green, so will need to use that sparingly.

Which option do you prefer? I can’t decide … I do want to make them matching pillows.

Option 1

Option 1

Option 2

Option 2

Thanks for the help!!

    I Like number 1 it catches the eye better!

  2. Sophie says:

    I prefer #2 … but only you know if you’d like the multicolor print to dominate or be an accent to the bold colors in your other fabrics.

  3. PegD says:

    I like #1 and love the fabric choices

  4. Tricia says:

    I like #2

  5. Judy C says:

    I like # 2.

  6. Nicole says:


  7. LeAnne L says:

    I like #2. I think it’s more balanced.

  8. Lisa Bailey says:

    #1. The multi pattern forms the star within the block, and it will jump out. That fabric is too proud to be merely an accent, as it would be in block#2. It’s GORGEOUS.

  9. maxine says:

    I like # 2

  10. Andrea says:

    I vote for Number 1 – love them both, but think #1 will highlight your lovely print more dramatically. Have a great long weekend!!!

  11. Donna Phelps says:

    I prefer #2.Beautiful fabric.

  12. Ann Winters says:

    I would love nr.1

  13. Kathy says:

    I like # 2 better. 1 seems like a group of pieces, while 2 is a star and has a clear design.

  14. Pam Collins says:

    My eyes is captured by #1. I find it quite pleasing :)

  15. Maribel says:

    Creo que la opción B parece más juvenil sobre el dibujo, saludos desde Barcelona, Spain, espero que disfrute con la labor que seguro le quedará bonita.

  16. Lori says:

    I like 2

  17. BillieBee says:

    #2 is for me….grin. It just feel like it opens up. Your fabrics are so gorgeous….wow and wow.

  18. Ellie says:

    I like #1 best but either will look good with your lovely fabrics.

  19. Ellen says:

    I like number 1.

  20. Nan says:

    I like #1 because of the way the colors are contained by the black but yet look like they want to burst forth.

  21. Irai says:

    I choose number #1..the black colour in that part..its more attractive than number #2 ..^^

  22. Sue says:

    I like option #1- I think it’s more dramatic

  23. Tammy says:

    I adore option #1. I feel the pattern would show off the print fabric better. Although both options are a beautiful choice for a pillow.

  24. Sandie Hrycyk says:

    The larger pieces for the print fabric will show up well.

  25. Sandy zielinski says:

    I like both. Make one of each,it we’ll be more interesting that way.

  26. Ashley says:

    I’d say #2!!!

  27. Connie says:

    # 1

  28. Domaris Foss says:

    Personally I Lik Numbe 2.

  29. Terri says:

    I love all your fabrics! My favorite pillow is #2.

  30. Jean says:

    I like #1, shows off more of the multicolor.

  31. Barb says:

    My choice would be #1, as the black would be more prominent.

  32. Gale says:

    #2 is my pick!!! Hope it helps you. Have fun sewing and enjoy your long weekend.

  33. Beda says:

    Option 1-it will show more of the focus fabric. I’d love to get my hands on that fabric. It’s gorgeous.

  34. Debra Miller says:

    Please let us know what fabric line the purple and black print are from! I would love to make my bff a quilt with them

  35. Jacque says:

    I love your fabrics!
    my vote would be for #2

  36. bobbiesews says:

    I like #1 best. That being said I LOVE your main fabric!

  37. DebV says:

    I like number 1. It will show off the print better.

  38. Lynette, From NZ says:

    I like option 2, the star in the middle star stands out better
