Fractured Fats

In anticipation of demonstrating the new Stripology ruler last weekend I wanted to design a quilt that was relatively easy to make, and uses the standard pre-cuts you can get from a fat quarter:  two 10" squares, four 5" squares, and one 2-1/2" x 20" strip.

Part of the demo was showing those cuts on fat quarters and, as I thought I might as well have a purpose in mind for those cuts, instead of just cutting random fat quarters, I wanted a design (or 2, or 3, or 4) in mind.   It would also be a chance to have the quilters watching the demo vote on which of several designs they liked.

As usual, the one they preferred that day is not the one I would have chosen/guessed.   :-)   I like to cast as wide an opinion net as possible, and see if the blog readers' choice matches that of the local quilters.  (It's fascinating to see what everyone is going to like most!)

So, here are four choices; the colors aren't important, they're just varied to make it easier to see the pattern.  The end quilt might be all blues or all reds, or a completely different color scheme than shown. So, picture your favorite color scheme or palette, and vote, at the link below, on your favorite.  You'll see the designs on the poll, also, but as a preview:
