Default Which one looks better

Hello! As most of you know, I LOVE colour and contrast .. so I am wondering which one looks best.
The "real" colours will be as follows: the orange is a batik of orange, yellows and greens, the yellow is yellow batik and the green is a soft green batik ... the three compliment each other very well, which might not come across in my pictures.

I used my EQ7 to play with the colours.

Marion,

Are you able to put the two blocks side by side for comparisons? Then post as one picture.

I wish I could see them side by side to be sure. As much as I love orange I think the predominant yellow is visually better

Lets see if this will post the picture so you can see them together. Are you adding a border to the design?

Oh RhondaK look at you go! I couldn't figure out how to do that - I'm losing it!

Thank you for that ... I have no clue yet about the border ... ideas are welcome!

I like the orange being the predominant swirl color.

The one with the center square of orange is most appealing to my eye.

Beautiful design.

I liked them both but seeing them side by side.. the one with yellow towards the center wins! It shows off the circular shapes best.

Both are great - but I like the one on the right better.

The one with more orange on the outside feels "heavier" to me.
