    Bargello- Which one would you choose?

    Hi,I'm doing another bargello and also an African table topper which has lots of black in it. I can only work onthe table topper for a short time because it's so hard on the eyes.So, I then go back to the bargello. I now have a choice to make and just can't make up my mind. Will it be number 1 or ,by turning it around and removing the last row, will it be number two?.( I am an expert at unpicking so this will not be a problem lol). Which one would you choose? Thanks

    I like 2. It has more dimension.

    I prefer the second one as well. It draws your eye right into the quilt.

    I like the first one, very graceful lines that give the entire quilt a sense of movement.

    I vote for one. Less typical and more dynamic.

    I like both of them, would be hard to choose. Why not make two?

    I like #1 since i instantly saw a butterfly. I felt "watched" when I looked at #2'. Love the colors and a bargello is something I would like to try but it seems so intimidating!

    I love both of them, but #2 looks more "complete" to me.
    Wonderful colors.

    It is definitely a difficult choice, but I think I like #1 better, and only because it has a "different" look to it....#2 looks more like an "around the world" pattern.

    Both are beautiful, can't go wrong. My first instinct when looking at them was #2. Did I say beautiful?

    I like #2. I wasn't going to vote, but I noticed that the votes are very close, and I really like #2. Your colors are very nice.

    I like the first one much more. It looks more classy and has more hugable. The second looks like someone's staring at me.

    That is a hard choice, they are both so beautiful. I think I would go with the first one.

    I prefer the second. Seems to show off the purples better. The green, while I love all your color choices, seems to be too prominent in the first.
