Modern Dresdan Plate or Art Deco?

On my morning stroll around Pinterest, I found this new addition to my “Must Make” list thanks to christaquilts.com

I’m an Art Deco lover so it’s natural I would like to do this.  I’m intrigued with the two different layouts.   Same block, just different layout. Which do you like is best?

This is a paper pieced block .  Using the  “flannel as the foundation” method taught by Sandy Lindal  might work well here.  I hate tearing away the foundation paper.  Sandy also showed us how to use a transfer pencil to get the pattern onto the flannel.

Here is the paper piecing template.

I am going to join parts A and B together when I transfer it onto the flannel.  The less seams the better.
