Joseph's Coat Pillow Options

Pillow - layout option 1

I kept at it yesterday and made all of the wedges for the pillow front. I've made 2 different layout options and really don't know which one to go with. I guess when you're making something for someone else, it's hard to choose what I think they will prefer.
So, here are the options... in the picture above I've made a (kind of) color wheel pattern and in the picture below it's all random.
Pillow - layout option 2
I think I like the color wheel option best, but what do you think? Would you like something that has more of a random color pattern to it for your house?

Here are the two patterns side by side.
Thanks for helping me decide!

Colorwheel, definitely.

wishes, true and kind said...

I love them both -- I can see why it's a tough decision. If I really had to choose, I guess I would go color wheel.

Leila said...

I like the color wheel. It is beautiful!

Jona said...

Color wheel, definitely! I also like the randomness in the other layout but I am all for color wheels :)

Barbara said...

I like the random setting.

Amber said...

They are both gorgeous but I love the random look of the second one - but I say go with your gut!

Lisa said...

I like them both, but if I were choosing for my own house, I would pick random.

I can't believe how different they look- I thought at first glance that they used two different fabric sets.

I like the planned setting more. Its so beautiful!

Meg said...

Color wheel for sure! It makes it look put together rather than scrappy. So pretty!

littlecumulus said...

I vote color wheel! So bright & cheery. But I would like it better if the yellow & green FMF seeds weren't parallel to each other - but that's just cause I'm OCD like that. Gorgeous - I'm in love!

Heather said...

c o l o r W h e e l for me! I Luuuvvv it ;)

XO, Heather

Jessica said...

They're both great, but I love the color wheel! I'm OCD right along with littlecumulus--I noticed that too!

Kristen said...

Love the color wheel!!!!! But they are both beautiful! I may have to try this pattern. It's beautiful.

Janice said...

I prefer the random one, but I don't think you could go wrong with either one. They are simply gorgeous! Go with your gut!

Carol in E TN said...

Color wheel although the other one would be nice. Love the design.

Ashley said...

they're both beautiful (with such great fabrics, how can you go wrong?!)If I had to pick, my vote would be for the color wheel...

kait. said...

Color wheel!

whatktmadenext said...

I love the colour wheel version!

Sara H said...

if the recipient has any arty/design leanings and even knows about the color wheel, go for that.

If it's more to "pretty" up a room, go random.

I kinda like the random layout - do you see the inner ring of pinks/oranges that you made? It actually grounds the randomness.

Andi said...

Random for me but both are stunning.

Jody said...

Of course, both are gorgeous! I think I like the color wheel version, but honestly either one are equally beautiful:)

Mel said...

I really like the random pattern!

piecemealquilts said...

I prefer the random one. The color wheel looks unbalanced because the lights are on one side and the darks are on the other. I actually caught my breath when I saw the random one. It seems lighter and sparklier.

Leslie said...

i really do like a color wheel ROYGBIV option but your random option looks really nice...i think i vote for 2.

Lisa ONeill said...

I love the random version - it is so interesting and better highlights the individual fabrics. Beautiful either way really!

ladmquilter said...

I like tham both but prefer the color wheel one.

Monika said...

Love the colour wheel! I love anything that looks like a colour wheel or a rainbow!!

megan said...

Dang they are both too pretty!!! I personally love the random,but why not make one of each and then keep one for yourself??

Mel said...

PS, I recently discovered your blog via needles(the other kind) and as a new quilter, I am so inspired by your blog. Your work is really gorgeous!

Kathie said...
