    I would alternate. I like the look of the different blocks together, makes it less monotonous.

    I think an alternating block pattern would look the best and more pleasing to the eye.

    I like the look of alternating them. They are both great blocks.

    Join the "club." Did you mean sashing? Sometimes it's so hard to come up with the right word. It's a good thing we stick together.
