Off Set or Straight Set?

This red wall hanging is so RED! On the one hand I love working on it, on the other it's so bright and high contrast, I don't know if I like it. I don't know if it's going to be too much when it's done, but I can't stop working with the charming vintage reds and piecing the blocks. Is this a UFO in the making??

The larger blocks are pieced from four Split Sixteen patch blocks. These blocks can be laid out different ways. I don't know which one I like better.

So I asked DS2, who was an art major and is now working in graphic design. He thought about it a long time before he said, "What about adding another color to tone it down? That's a lot of red."

We'll see how this turns out in the end.
