Thanks, Bear, for the visual aid! I like the 2nd (basketweave) too.

My question is....now to sew them into rows and I don't know weather to line the borders straight as in photo one or stagger them (basketweave ) as in #2,
Both photos look the same to me.....to stagger I would think a half plain gray block top and bottom of every other row....

I'm so impressed! With the beautiful blocks and the visual aids. Sewnoma's observation is very interesting about focus on the blocks vs the pattern.

I couldn't see a real difference or understand your question at first, but now that I do, I'm with the majority on basketweave.

Since all of your block sashing is the same color(gray)- except the few white blocks----I personally don't see how basket weave would be effective. As in the visuals, if the sashes were of different colors,then that design element would be more noticeable. Jmho
