    Ok so this is my first trial doing this pattern, but i need opinions on which block will look less busy and the corner blocks nicer???? am I making sense?????

    How about a red sashing with the corner green same as in the block itself...BTW i am inspired by Katier825 setup of the D9P because i don't like the block to be busy. You can see it here and get what i am looking for:

    Charming, Arranging it on point is what mine is like. Do you have any red that you want to use for the sashing? If so, lay the blocks on it and see what you think. it's so much easier to visualize that way.

    I like the one on the right in the top pic. :)

    I think you're off to a great start, I like the block on the right in the top photo the best, and red sashing sounds like it would work nicely.

    I am not good at explaining but i did a search here and here is a link to show you how the blocks are set at point, so when you look at the quilt you don't see the blocks straight horizontally but like diamonds. Clear as mud???

    Hope this helps

    From this link the black/white one looks more on point.

    This one is way too busy for you, but it is set on point with cornerstones that matched the center block. I love the way it came out even though I had to add a block because it takes one more to set them on point and I was out of fabric.
