Saturday Layout

Early morning wakeup this Saturday and time to play with layouts for the wedding quilt.
Yesterday the sections were cut from the strip sets. 

Here laid out according to the pattern and my original vision of my fabric choices versus the magazine.

I was bothered by the high contrast between the rust stripe and the green--those complementary shades intensify each other--and the dark appearing too deep with the rust stripe around it.

Second layout. 

The neutrals seem more balanced in this layout with the tan and rust more prominent, which is what I want.  Opinions?

You have a great designing eye. #2 for sure although you know… I rarely offer up my opinion because I'm shy. Hee.

The second layout looks good. I'd go with your first instict.

I agree with all the other voters, although it would be difficult to describe why.

Another voice following along with the quiet mob --I agree that #2 is the better layout choice.
Your next profession, possibly quilt designing? You have an eye for it.
