Parcheesi Runner opinion needed


I made a three block Parcheesi runner to go with the quilt I made my sister in law for Christmas.
I had alot of fun making these but I have a dilemma . I want to make some more but I need some help in deciding which block looks better.
The center block is made of 4 squares put together and the end block is a 12.5 inch square in which I appliqued the 4 Parcheesi pieces too.
Which one looks better?
Though I have incorporated both types of blocks in this runner, I do have many more Parcheesi units that I have cut up and I want to applique them to the block that looks the best.

I like the end block better, it has a cleaner look than the center one with all the seams.

Betsy I'm liking the 12.5" block you appliqued. Both are very pretty but I think making them all the same way is best. Love your colors.

I think the 12.5" block would be easier, but I happen to like the other one best.

I forgot to say thanks for entering my giveaway yesterday, so "Thanks!"
My 2-cents says I like the first one in the photo... Just my thoughts...
Happy stitchings and good luck! 8-)

I like the one on the right best, why make a 4 patch if you don't have to? Just making work for yourself!! lol

My eyes went straight to the 12.5 inch (solid) block. I think it was the background fabric that drew me in. But, the more I look at the four block one, I believe I like that one better. Something about the seam lines, makes the applique pop out.

Both are very nice!

I like the appliqued one best. However you could use different cream/off white fabrics for your four patch one for a different effect.

I think they both look very nice but if I had to choose, I would pick the one on the end, not the squares.

I like the block on the end the best! They both look great though!

I like the end block also, so crisp looking.

Well I guess I'm kind of late leaving my vote.. but I pick the appliqué as well. I think it gives you more control of the leaves.. and looks so pretty on the solid block.
