Design board play...

I have been working on ideas to use some of my dyed fabrics for a new art quilt. Today, I started auditioning some fabrics I had pulled out of my stash. I sometimes have a hard time envisioning a design by just auditioning fabrics, but this time I did a little cutting and moving around, and I think I may have a design ready to work on. One of my goals was to create a piece with non-squared edges:
I took the picture on the left from the design board, but then rotated around to create the image on the right. I'm almost thinking I like the one on the right better because the larger piece of fabric is on the bottom, and gives it more of a base. Now I guess I'll let it sit for awhile and see if I still like the composition well enough in a day or two to continue.

why don't you do them both and display them side by side.
I like what you have put together. I have the same problem using up my hand dyeds.
