Dots or no dots?

I have the major part of “It’s Rigged” stitched down. Now I need to decide whether to create dots where the pinheads were in the blocked piece. EB liked the pinheads as a design element even though I did not intend them to be.

Here are photos with and without the dots. The dots are from a black fabric with white dots.

Which way would you go? Dots or no dots? If you like dots do I need more dots. I basically put them where the pinheads were. I need to decide by tomorrow because I have to get quilting on it.

Linking to Off the Wall Fridays.

Thanks for reading and commenting.

No dots.

I agree. The dots are distracting.

I agree with you. I think EB was being sarcastic when she said they were a design element anyways. I really don't like the dots myself.

Hmmm...I admit to liking some of the dots -- not the ones along the ground, but the ones that give the rigs 'eyes' and are in the "joints" of the structures. Those make the rigs look like large mechanical insects...which (for me) enhances the impression that they are the "bad guys" in this scenario.

I'm a day late and a dollar short, so to speak, but I agree with Margaret. They do make the oil wells more mechanical looking. We used to see these in California and called them grasshoppers. Folks even had them in their yards which in most of California are small. Of course you generally don't get mineral rights when you buy a house in Ca. Sure wish my grandpa could have afforded to buy Long Beach at $10 an acre when they moved to LA in the '20's.

I'm glad you took the dots out. They don't belong. LOL If you had the widget for follow by e-mail on your sidebar (I didn't see it - maybe missed it somehow?) I'd follow your blog. I comment.
