You know when you go to the eye doctor and spend a while trying to determine whether slide A of tiny letters/numbers or slide B of tiny letters/numbers is more clear. Often both are better in one way but worse in another, and you sort of shrug your shoulders and offer a tentative, "A, I guess." And then the doctor says, "Are you sure? Let me show them to you again." At which point the process goes on and on and you have no idea whether you're telling the doctor that your vision is stable or has declined precipitously?
Well, I feel somewhat similar in trying to decide which of the layout options I prefer for the wonky log-cabin Miracle Foundation quilt. I've figured out the basic layout I want, but I'm having trouble deciding if I want the squares to lie side-by-side or if I want to sash the squares in white (with maybe a 1" white border between them). So you get to pick. I warn you that I did not lay out white fabric so the sashing option is not a great approximation (the wood floor serving as sashing) but I think gives the idea of what it could look like, sans the white making the colors pop.
Ok, I'm rambling. Here are the pictures. Let me know which you prefer, trying to imagine white, not brown, between the squares in option B.
