Which Direction? Improvisational Piecing With Didi Salvatierra

I took a great workshop with Didi Salvatierra today.
I used many precut hand dyed fabric strips
 gleaned from another quilter quite awhile ago.
The white is the design wall NOT park of the composition.
My color palate is a bit brighter 
so I plan to add some bright accents - Maybe embroidery 
or maybe just machine quilted. 
So, the question is, which orientation is most pleasing in your opinion?

Handmade Aqua Vinyl Clutch

My Fiber Arts Alliance group had a workshop
on creating our own vinyl sheet using
bits and pieces of fabric and threads.
It was a quick process and everyone's came out
so unique and clever.
I used remnants from my latest project
and followed the teacher, Denise's great directions
to create this vinyl clutch.  It would be a great gift idea.

"Call Her Blessed" In Progress

4th in a spontaneous series honoring women,
"Call Her Blessed" 
combines many, many cotton batik fabrics 
to create this female form on a pieced black and white background.
I'm adding hand embroidery daily as part of the 
#ayearinstiches challenge and having a great time.

I've really enjoyed this composition of female shapes.

The border is almost completely quilted with
white quilting thread.
