This is option 2.
DH says it has more visual impact.
I agree with DH
Yup, this one gets my vote as well.
Of the two choices, I like this one best.
But have you tried other layouts? Think of these as log cabin blocks, and you also have a barn raising layout, or light/dark layouts with 'floating' diamonds.
All sorts of possibilities!
I like this one better, but would like to see examples of what Jennifer suggested (for my own edification mainly).
I like this better than option #1, but the floating diamonds are also a nice pattern.
I'm partial to this layout as opposed to the first one as well, but would try some of Jenn's suggestions as well.
Here's a few layouts to look at......decisions decisions...

Oh, I agree, I love #2.
Sharon, thanks for the link!
Ooooh...thanks for the link, I'll try some other options as well.
Isn't it amazing what you can do with HST's?
I like this option better than #1.
You have some luscious colors there
Sharon, thanks for the link.
