    These are strips of material only, no piece work.

    The one on the left works, but the one on the right is intense. Still like it, though. Which is your fav, ThreadHead?

    Threadhead, I like them, they are visually very interesting. These would look great in an office lobby or in a long formal style entry way. Definately conversation pieces.

    The one on the left is great!

    The one on the right the outer rows work very well, but then as you go toward the center it loses the pattern of the block in the various prints. Perhaps if you used a smaller print to play with the red...and reversed the order of the two rounds that form complete diamonds...not sure if that would do it or not.

    I like the one on the left the best. The one on the right has too much going on. I might be able to tone it down a little. I'll go back in and change it around a tad.
    I make them for my older kids 53, 54, and 56, and grandkids. I have a 7 year old granddaughter who thinks she's a diva and tries to dress one. She likes the one on the left too. lol

    The one on the left makes your eye dance too much - it's lacking a focal point. However, the one on the right, IMHO, is less chaotic. Thanks for sharing.

    I like the first one but the second one makes me want to look away.
