Rethinking (or thinking too much)

I have dreamed up so many setting solutions for these blocks it's making me dizzy.  I had decided on straight set, with sashing and decided to make two types of blocks, with and without the side squares in the second print.  Then I made up several possible settings on point, with and without sashing.  At first I didn't like the look where the print triangles intersected because the print is busy and it looked chaotic.  But now with several rows laid out it doesn't bother me as much.  I also bandied about whether to sash it in green or purple.  And what do to with the corner half triangles - pieced or solid fabric?  I can't make up my mind.  Here is the  EQ representation of my latest suggestion:
Compare with my purple sashed option:
Or this version:
Or green sashing:

Someone needs to take me by the shoulders and say "Make that one!"

Personally, I like the purple-sashed one, but I would still add the plain border.

Not the green sashed one unless you want a green quilt. I like the purple sashed one I think best, but would need to see the setting fabrics before choosing one option or the other.

I like the first layout with no sashing. i like the secondary shapes that happen when the blocks are right next to each other.

The purple sashing with the darker, plain border.

Make the first layout! Or the last one! I like the complicated look of the pattern! With the obvious sashing I say... "Oh, she made the blocks and put them together." Without the sashing or with the ligh sashing I think "Wow! How did she do that?"
