    Have this up on design wall today and can't decide which way I like it! Will leave it up a few days. The colors are not true. the red looking is really dark raspberry, the yellow looking is actually a wheat color plus the colors are not as bright as in pics. Help me decide please. This is for my best girlfriend who we visited for a week, then our car got totaled and we ended up spending over 3 weeks with her... waiting for insurance and looking for replacement car. We were not hurt, TG !!!

    I like the first one better! The dark blue squares seem to pop out at you.

    Oh without a doubt--the first design!! :D
    In the first you're highlighting the floral--in the second the blue. Easy choice!

    I like the first one - the floral squares just seem to go better in the center of the red & green sashings - it does make the darker blue squares pop - the second one is a bit more subdued to me - like it's lacking in something..

    I tend to agree with the first option. Funny; I am working on that pattern right now too!

    The first option seems more balanced & focused to me.

    The florals somehow look out of place in the second where they look framed in the first.

    I like the first one better too! When I have made warm wishes, I have always used at least two focal fabrics as well and I like to frame the one that is the true focal fabric.

    I like the first one best as well. That one makes the floral the focus fabric in a 'frame'. :D

    I like the first one best, but I wouldn't put on the bottom row unless there is enough fabric left to finish it like the top row.

    Good eye Barb_MO. I forgot to mention I didn't have enough room on the wall for the last row. They are cut & sewn, just waiting for my decision.

    I am glad that you were not hurt in the auto accident. I like the first photo best!
