Quilt Design: Opinions Requested

The auctioned quilt we wish to ripoff, cause we're jerks, thats why.
To Whom It My Concern,

I request your opinion. but first, the all important interesting backstory.

At the recent NCGO Fall Fling geocaching event (see details here), a geocaching themed quilt was up for bid at the silent auction.  We (my wife and I) tried to win it, but alas it was not meant to be, and we went home empty handed (at least as far as quilts are concerned).

Fortunately my lovely wife +Debbie DeBaeremaeker is a handy dandy real life experienced quilter.  A bona fide lady of the pieced cloth. She has graciously offered to make me a replica geocaching quilt of my very own.

This morning we went out and purchased some fabric to make said quilt.  (yes, I actually went into a fabric store with the intent of coming out with fabric I personally spent my own fun money on.  Crazy eh?)

I also came up with some design ideas. Problem is that I like several of them.

Below are four of my designs. Three are variations on a theme, and the other is a direct rip off of the Fall Fling quilt.

I am asking you (yes you!), dear reader, to toss in your two cents (via the comments section) which design you think is the better one.

So here are the designs:

Design #1:  Hiker, two satellites, geocaching logo.

Design #2: hiker and single satellite

Design #3:  Solo hiker

Design #4:  Geocaching logo

So what do you think?  Let me know in the comments below.  I will be posting pics of the quilt itself when it is finished, tho my wife is currently working on another quilt, so it may take a while... stay tuned!
