Black and White Challenge Dilemma

I was working on my B/W challenge this past weekend as you can see. But when I got to the actual positioning of the blocks, I couldn't make up my mind. I like both but I can only do one.
HELP! I need your input so please feel free to leave comments.
Thanks, in advance.

Okay....to me, I like the one on the left...because I can see ALL the black and white blocks...on the right some would be cut off on the sides. (OH...wait...maybe this is a BIG quilt and the ones on the sides will not be cut off when you are done?? If so, either setting is nice.) For some reason, MY eye is happier looking at the one on the left....but that is just one gal's opinion!!! :) You will probably get a split verdict on this and that won't help you at all. LOL

I like the one on the left, also.

Ah yess, the layout dilemma! The one on the left is a classic setting, calm, predictable and pretty. The focus is on the black blocks with the floral in the background.
The one on the right is a bit more edgy (pun intended). It has more movement, more excitement. It keeps your eyes going round to see what is happening. It, too, is beautiful. Now the focus seems more evenly divided. The floral is joining the action.
The envelope, please. I vote for the one on the right.
Sometimes, the intended use or palcement of the quilt will determine the layout...is a quiet quilt design needed, or would an active quilt design be appropriate?
My 2 cents.
Beautiful either way. But I really like the the one on the right.

I like the one on the let because the black borders around the completed black and white blocks makes them POP. If the borders were red, I would choose the other one. Besides, it is a BW challenge so the BW should take prominence, right?

I prefer the one with the floral corners.
