The Polls Are OPEN!!!

I've been piecing and playing with this small wall hanging for the past month or so, and would love YOUR opinion oh how you think the final placement of the nine blocks should go. I thought that I had my final and most favorite placement, but when I viewed these pictures, I was amazed at how different everything appeared. Please don't be shy and register your vote. I am ready to be done with this!

So, is it View #1:

View #2:

View #3:


View #4:

I obviously have no art background, just enjoy color and any constructive criticism and reasons for your choice would also be most helpful!

Of course, you may also vote for VIEW #5, which would be the trash can. Is it waaay to busy? There will be a very narrow border, and I'm thinking it will be the pinky multi-colored fabric that is the outer portion of the arc. The binding will probably be that fabric as well.

Thanks for taking the time to post your ballot!!

I like view4 best. I think it is wonderful piecing. I can't believe you did all those pointy triangles. I don't think it's too busy at all.

I like them all but #2 has the most movement and flow to me when I look at it which is probably due to the position of the upper left and lower right blocks. They appear to be spinning off the quilt.

I like view #1 the most. That one seems most organized in my eyes. (I'm an organized person as you know ;-)
The others are more busy for me (as you self said).
Eager to see the ready result =)

My order would be: #'s 2, 1, 4, 3. What do you have in mind for a border, if any?

I like views 2 and 4 - these are really cool blocks!

This is like the children's game - which one is different. I wanted to print them out and look at them side by side, but I will save my ink!! : )

I like 1 best because the darker pieces coming together is too distracting for me. I just want to zero in on them, like a bull's eye. Is this paper pieced? I am impressed. I love the use of the stripes and the dots and the colors are all so springy!

I vote for view one. Like Gerry, I like how it keeps my eye busy roaming all around. It needs some lime green! Well you did ask!

WOW! What fun! As much fun as pinwheels.

I like #3 because the focus is on the lower left corner. That position is an unnatural place for the eye to go, so if the focus begins there the eye will automatically travel through the rest of the composition. It naturally will be drawn back to one complete shape and begin the visual journey all over again.

I also like #1 because the pattern is almost geometrical. Because it isn't, the eye will stay in and travel around the piece trying to determine a uniform pattern.

I love the graceful X in #1. the others are so predictable with the circles.
