    My own personal preference is the second way, with all the hearts going the same direction. Since the hearts are a dark on a light background alternating with a light heart on a dark background that really gives it the interest......and the contrast. Nice quilt!!

    I like the first!! I've never been a fan of pieces that all face the same direction ... like Sun Bonet Sue's all facing west, looks too contrived. I think mixing it up adds more interest, and in the case of your hearts ... regardless of which way you look at it, it's right side up.
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    all the hearts right side up, the other way is distracting in my opinion

    I totally agree 2nd is best, the other way is to distracting, but it is your quilt.

    I like the first one, it is the unexpected. I think your eye also sees different things.

    I prefer the first layout.
    The first layout is more graphic and versatile in my opinion and has a more interesting secondary pattern. I think that the second layout emphasizes the heart shape the most; if you want the hearts to be the focus then the second layout may be better.

    2nd. version gets my vote. The darks and lights work better in contrast with each other. The 1st one confuses me, a personal point of view of course.
