One (to my mind) practically perfect granny square

After my adventure making four kinds of granny squares, I decided that Gertrude Taylor’s granny square pattern (chain-1 corners, 3dc shells with no chain-1 in between them) made for the best granny square for constructing a bag as it works up into a firm square without much drape.

Building on the six-round square I had begun, I tried any number of colors, and after many partially crocheted rounds which I then frogged and re-crocheted in some other color which either allowed me to move forward or required me to frog yet again, I finally settled on this series of colors for one of what will be two ten-round granny squares:

A practically perfect ten round granny square

that will form the visual anchor of each side of the bag:

In addition to another ten-round granny square, I will also need sixteen five-round granny squares, and if my color indecision continues as it has, I should have the bag ready just in time for spring of 2016.
