Last week I made a couple of test Dresden Plate blocks.
I think I got everything worked out for my project
except for the alignment of the points.
Here are photos of an unfinished block to compare the alignment.
The question is, should the points be oriented at 12, 3, 6, and 9?
Or should the V's?
Side by side comparison:
These blocks will have snowballed corners in the actual project. Here's a mock-up:
These blocks will not be next to each other;
they'll be separated by alternate blocks in a checkerboard pattern.
Do you have a preference? Why?
I want the light backgrounds to look round-ish in the actual quilt.
Does one of these layouts achieve that better than the other?
Thanks for your input.
