    I can't decide on which way to go. The first block or the second. The runner I believe has three blocks (it is the mystery runner that I am behind on) So I though maybe one in the center and the other one, one on each side. Not sure. Any suggestions. The pattern just calls for the block with all the different colors in the middle. The one with the four oranges together I made up. And if you don't like one of them please for sure let me know!

    This is the way the directions call for. Three of these in the runner

    Hard to choose on this one, but I think for a runner, I would pick the 2nd one. But I like both of time.

    Thanks everyone. I like 2 better and my DH likes 1 better. I have 10 for number 2, 2 for number 1 and one nuetual. Hmmmmmm

    No-one thinks I could put them on the same runner? Like 2 of 1 on the ends and 2 in the center, or 2 of 2 on the ends and 1 in the center. Or would that really be too much?

    If it's a runner with about 3-4 blocks, I would choose the first. Both are lovely! :)

    Is it possible to lay it out and let us see?

    I only have the two so far. I could lay out two more I guess. The squares are two inches. This it the mystery runner we did over in Links. I saw Aggi's block before I caught up.. Hee Hee. Maybe I will put them together. But someone mentioned if it is for a runner to do 1. Maybe 2 ist too bright for a runner?

    I hate to go against the grain..... but I love number 1. How about do both, three blocks, two one way on the ends and the middlen block can be the opposit.. just a thought. I wonder how would that look?

    Finally guilting gal. I mentioned that in the begginning and a couple of post ago. I figured no-one liked the idea because no-one commented on it. Now the question is which goes in the middle and which goes on the ends. Hee Hee. LOL. It never ends does it. But because you are on my same mind track what do you think?

    Everyone else can chime in too please. You all have been great help!!!!! :D

    I like your thinking of how to place them, one in the middle, & one on both ends. I like the second one tho.

    Okay, Because No. 2 is the brighter of the two, I think I am going to put No. 2 on the ends then No. 1 in the middle to break down the brightness yet there will be more of the prettier block ( I think, but DH sez NO.1 is). Sew, off to Sew I go. :D

    Oh Shucks, I just envisioned No. 2 in the middle, you know visa versa. I think the only way I am going to decide is to make enough to choose from then do something else with the extra. Like a hot mat or something. I will post more pictures later. Again, Sew off to Sew I go, for real this time. :shock:
