I'm making this magic lantern quilt for my sister, she likes purple. I like quilts with a lot of white to frame blocks. So I've about half of the blocks made and I'm trying to work out which layout I prefer. Which do you think works best? She also likes green, so I could do green sashing, but I don't have a solid green. I think this one might be too busy.??

The colours in these pictures are reading more tan than purple, they are purple, trust me!

I like A best! I always think offset is interesting to the eye and keeps thr eye moving.  B is also good but I kinda dig the little bit of separation between the blocks.

I do like the idea of green but not sure that plaid is it. Might be good if the strips were very skinny but how ever would you keep all the lines lined up? It could end up a beast of a job.

Anyhoo, love the name and the design is super interesting. If you need green fabric, you have only to ask. I'm sure there is a stash of it in my bins I'll never use. Name your shade Cheesy.

I'm not normally a fan of white and tend to learn more towards color, but I almost feel that green sashing would be too busy.  I agree with CLM that matching all those seams would be a beast. I guess if I had to choose a layout, I'd go with C, but they really are all very nice.
