    i like them both, too. the "something wrong" with #1 is that you laid out two of the triangles upside down (last one, right end, rows 1 and 3 from the top.) took me forever to figure it out.

    i would probably do #2, then make #1 using two different "busy" fabrics for the pinwheels. BUT your version of #1 is the better of the two. fascinating, in fact, since it does turn into several different quilts depending on where your eye starts. #2 is just one quilt. why make one when you can make three or four in one? :wink: :lol: :lol:

    I love them both. if you choose the pinwheels, quilt around the pinwheels to help them stand out. They both look GREAT! It is a hard choice. Bernadette

    I like the pinwheels/stars layout best - personal preference only. It's like and optical illusion. The other one is more organized. Would it help to make the square that isn't a center of the star a different color to help the eye be more organized?

    For another male perspective...hubby o'mine liked the pinwheels best. He saw pinwheels right off the bat, so I guess it wasn't just male vision thing after all LOL

    I think the first one reminds me of the friendship star, rather than pinwheels. I love the movement, too.

    But I like the symmetry of the second better.
    My opinion is worth what you pay for it, nothing! Do what makes YOU happy, it's YOUR quilt.

    I agree. I like both, but I like the pinwheels better for the optical illusion quality. :D

    But go with what you think is best.

    I really like both. I do not know what hubby saw, I saw pinwheels and they were beautiful. I would do the second, as I like that for myself, but wish I had the courage to do the first one. They are beautiful, do what makes you happy, they are really good. :P
