$10 quilt layouts

I just got the last block for my $10 quilt from Seven Sisters Quilt shop today. So I have been playing on EQ trying to find a layout I like. Here are a few I came up with. I don't know which to choose, the first one is double/queen size the others are lap/twin depending on the border size. Which ones do you like best?

Clue 6

Putting it all together

Sashing (color #2 light) cut 24 pieces 12 ½” by 3 ½”.

Inner border cut six 1 ½ by width of fabric strips from colour #3 dark join together into one long length.

Outer border cut border parallel with selvedge. Cut 4 borders 6 1/2” wide by length of fabric (2meters).

Lay out quilt according to diagram.

Sew blocks and sashing into rows pressing rows in opposite directions to nest seams as you go.

Sew rows together press.

Measure through center of quilt, cut inner borders to fit, Sew to quilt center.
