Big Jump Press - Beautiful Letterpress - Possible Geeky Quilting?

So, there I was having a perfectly normal chat with Adam, one of our English Programme Managers, about perfectly normal things (imbecilic students & stationery, mostly) when I glanced over at his monitor ... which showed the Etsy shop page for Big Jump Press: amazingly beautiful bound & letterpressed journals and boxes which are made by a friend of his in New York. 

He then showed me the FANTASTIC long long pencil box on his desk (sorry no pic) that she had made especially for him. (I'll have to sneak up and get a pic tomorrow!)

I had a little click through her Etsy shop and these letterpress prints from her book on The Periodic Table just jumped right out at me!  Don't you think they are just squealing to be quilted?  Or am I just a lost cause now, where EVERYTHING looks quiltable?? (At the moment it seems especially to be things that are particularly geeky!)

Personally, I think that the final pic, No.7, lends itself perfectly - the colour blocks combined with the quilting lines of  the connectors lines and those organic cell shapes ... mmm .... yumm .. Oh dear, I'm drooling again ...

What do you think? Which one would you want to quilt? 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, or 7 ??
