Well shoot. I decided to mess with a little more layout after reading some initial comments from Cindy to see if I could get a better idea of what I wanted.
This was fun times for the cats and my fabric is really scattered now.
Anyway, check out this mix of the two blocks I preferred. Turn out that once in the full assembly my second layout (I know, it gets confusing...block on the right, top row) is holding up the best in full assembly.
I could alternate the two layouts as shown below, but I don't think it will be the best look.
It seems to be that option 2 shows pattern best with all the scrappy fabric. The final quilt will have 12 of these units.
How does it look to others?
