    I had a jelly roll with various sort of batik fabrics in 3 colours, half are blue, a quarter are pink and a quarter are green. I chose a pattern, and made a start. Now I'm failing to chose a final layout between these two (apologies for the rough layout - the white bedsheet wont show through the gaps on the final!). I reckon asking my other half would get a "whats the difference?", so I was hoping to get a few opinions from people on here...

    Many thanks
    Sarah

    That's a tough one. I like number one because it has movement down the center and I like the second because it is more symmetrical. (I'm going by the pink) Either way will be pretty :cry: sorry that was NO help at all.

    I like them both, but i am leaning toward the second one because my eyes were drawn to it first. I am guessing this is because the center is an X so if draws you in to the center, whereas the first one is a diamond shape.

    I like #2. Just satisfies my sense of order.

    I like number 2 as well. The pattern is easier on the eye I think.

    The second one does it for me too.

    I'm glad I'm not the only one who dithers about the layout of blocks. The trouble is there are usually too many options.

    I agree, number two because it's easier to look at, but why????

    I think that although the pink is the brighter colour, the blue is the strongest and most predominant, and that's where the eye goes first. In the first layout, trying to make sense of the blue is hard work, whereas in the second the pattern is clear, the eye isn't having to hunt for it.

    No idea what the "official" reason is, but that's my thoughts on it. :-)

    A fairly unanimous decision made.
