    Thought I'd try this out. Think I like the unwhacked ones better.

    Before the whacking.

    Funny you should post this. But I just read through a whack book and they recommend you stay away from batiks for this type of project as there isn't enough contrast in the fabric to make it interesting.

    I have to agree I like the un-whacked blocks better too.

    Me too! The others are too much of an optical illusion, kind of hard on the eyes! I'm sure others will disagree with me, jmo!

    I'm a precision nut. I like 'em better unwhacked. Next time you can try just mixing up the blocks on the first sewing. No, you don't get the diagonals. Who needs 'em when you have such great fabric choices. Just love the batiks.

    The whacked ones might look better if you put them purple to purple, ect. It might make an interesting illusion, worth a try to give it a turn.

    I agree, unwhacked. They are really pretty.
