Do you have an opinion?

I have been working on the little piece I started during my last art group meeting. I'm almost finished but I can't decide which side is the top. When I was designing this I envisioned it in the horizontal orientation. The only reason I can think of that I did this is because this is what I usually do. I took it with me to work on at my guild's quilt show last weekend and several people thought it should be oriented vertically. If you have an opinion, would you please vote by leaving a comment.

Choice #1: Horizontal Orientation


Choice #2: Vertical Orientation

I actually like the second one.

I vote horizontal. Can't say why, but I do like it better.

The stitching is beautiful and I am surprised at how different turning it 90 degrees makes it look. I give a vertical vote, too. But can't say why.

When I saw the horizontal, I thought, "Yep, that's the way it should go." Then I saw the vertical and thought, "Nope, that's the way it should go." I went back and forth. I think I like the vertical better, but if I needed it to go horizontal to fit in a certain space, I would not worry about putting it that way either. Something about the vertical really works. Perhaps it's the continuity of color in the top and bottom pieces when you hang it that way.
