More Indecision

I started this last night. I made all the blocks, cut to finished in 3.5 hours. It's almost like instant gratification quilting. The fabric is the 'Oz' line by Sanae for Moda. Now I can't decide on a setting.
This is why quilting is a group sport. Sometimes you just can't make up your mind! I can't decided between setting options 1 and 2. Thoughts? I welcome opinions from my quilting and non-quilting friends/family alike!
Option 1, offset with wide orange strips:

Option 2, orange sashing with corner squares:

The photos aren't that great, but I took them in the basement last night. If I had my quilt wall up, the pictures would have been much better. Ahem.....

I like option #1, with the offset rows. It looks more interesting.

I like option 2. I like the uniformity.

My vote is for the modern look of #1. It has clean, strong lines and the eye is not interested in anything but the large squares of fabric.

Have to vote for Option #2. It calms the fantastic prints and bright orange a bit. I love the Oz. I will be making a small quilt with the charm squares in a class next week.

I like the second one it seems to flow better, the orange seems to overpower the blocks in the first one.

I vote for the cornerstones - agree with Andrea - it calms it down a bit. Although I do love an offset setting... Depends how bright the orange is in real life...

I like option #1, with a black inner border, orange flange border, then border print. Nothing like a specific opinion!
