    I am making one of those bento box patterns and I can't decide which layout to use. One has the same colors in each block and the other has 2 colors in each block. My husband liked the 1 color, but his thinking is never outside the box. My kids liked the 2 color and I think I am leaning towards it. Not so boring with a little more interest.

    The first one is easier on the eyes. Looking at the second one my eyes went everywhere, no where to rest.

    The first one is nice, my favorite.
    The other one is VERY busy!

    While I normally am an out of the box kind of girl...the first one for some reason is easier on the eye. I would separate those two purple blocks at the bottom right...they jumped out at me. :)

    This pattern is another that's on my 'to-try' list. Yours has wonderful colors. I prefer the first outlay.

    Definitely the first one. The pattern is a busy one and the same colors together help the eye follow the pattern. It's hard to see the design when you mix the colors.

    This is going to be really pretty when you get it put together!

    I vote for the second version. I think it is more interesting to have 2 colors.

    The 1st one is more to my liking. Show pictures when you get it quilted. I know it will be gorgeous!

    I like the first one. The second one just doesn't do it for me.

    I agree with obxqwlter about the purple ones on the bottom. Also, the orange are too close. The rest seem to be spread out nicely. In the 2 rows, you have 3 purple and 4 orange. The rest is spread out nicely. Good job!

    Thanks for your quick replies. I am going with the first one. I guess my husband was right, just don't tell him I said so. The first one will be easier to put together and I am planning on working on it today, it is snowing and what better thing to do.

    i started to say the first one but the second one fools the eye and makes the quilt look more difficult, which is the whole purpose of the pattern.
