    I like them both but #1 is something I haven't seen so I think I like that best.

    I like the second one. A complete design. First one looks cut off.

    I like number one in fact I have been looking for this pattern can you tell me the name of it and is it hard to put together. I want it done in pinks and blacks for my nieces wedding quilt and the heart is just popping out.

    Well I haven't counted all the 1s and 2s so not sure which view is ahead. I've made a few and I like them both! It depends on the look you're going for. #1 reminds me of a butterfly and has a floaty, swaying feel while #2 reminds me of a God's Eye and is a more traditional Bargello look. If I had to pick its #1 for me. Love your colors!

    Wow, thank you for such a great response. I really do appreciate it.. Looks like No1 is the winner, so that's the one I will go with.The pattern is Piccolo Bargllo Uno by Becky Botello and isn't hard to do. The instructions give you a choice of version 1 or 2 and the selection of fabric plays a big part in how it will turn out.Picking fabric is the hardest part for me, when doing a bargello.This one is in two parts and the second half is a mirror image of the first.Thank you for all the comments, they have been very helpful.

    I find Number 2 to be too anatomical, so I vote for the more abstract effect of No 1.

    I would choose #2!

    Ooh-they're both beautiful but I LOVE the way the colors push out to the edge on the ist one.
    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.

    I like #2. It reminds of the God's eye weavings.
