I am in need of opinions. I have this stack of 12" squares that have been languishing in a project bag for a couple of years. I made them to assemble into an afghan for a particular friend, who I will be visiting on Wednesday.

I have 2 possible layouts, and I can't decide between them, so I'd love a little bit of feedback. I don't want to switch around any of the blocks (that would only add to my confusion), I just need input on which layout looks the best.

Just imagine them all neatly laid out (I'll be joining them with black). And, thanks for your help!

Layout #1:






Layout #2:

Thanks for the feedback! I've been leaning towards #2, as well. It's funny, the first layout was done with input by two friends with great color sense. The second one was done by the daughter of one of them, and she's in the 5th grade. She waited for me to photograph the first layout, and then very quickly re-arranged to produce layout #2.

Because I was glued to the news yesterday (I had friends and family running and watching the marathon in Boston- all safe, fortunately), I didn't get much done. So, I need to work my fingers off today, I think!

I get my kiddos (16 & 10) to help with layouts all the time; they have such a great eye and are thoughtful with their decision.  (My hubby on the other hand cannot be trusted. Cheesy)

Sending prayers to Boston!  I couldn't sleep last night over all the news; I crocheted into the wee hours of the morning because crochet calms my mind a bit.

((HUGS)) and I can't wait to see your finished ghan!

Thanks, pinkleo! When bad things like this happen, I tend to mentally pace. I can't settle down and do anything. I should have just picked up the squares and worked on them- it probably would have helped.

And, I just got confirmation that I'm definitely visiting with the intended recipient tomorrow, so I'd best get a move on!
