Default A or B

Do you prefer A or B?

If you have a preference, why?

(If I would have been thought ahead, I would have just drawn pencil lines, made copies of the line drawings, and added the color later - but I was just going to do the one drawing when I started.)

I prefer A because it looks so much more complex, even though it is just a difference in the placements of the blocks. Be sure to show us your finished piece!

I like B better, it looks "woven".

I vote for A ~ it looks like it has a bit more going on, (ditto above)

Ditto. Hope to see the actual quilt when finished.

I like B - it looks more like plaid, and plaid reminds me of my Dad, so it makes me happy.

My preference is A. Not sure why...I think the stripes going down first (in B) make it look narrower somehow.

Thank you for the responses.

This is an example of how/why a design board/wall can be helpful - and taking a picture of each version as one plays with the pieces -

Sometimes a piece will also look "different" when it is turned.

Interesting, huh?

When being fitted at the optician's for glasses - anyone else have trouble deciding if one can see better with A or with B? or with C or with D?

When it is close - I usually choose the one I like "better" - even though - as far as I can tell - the clarity of the view is about the same to me.
