layout options

Here is the circle quilt I'm playing with. When building a quilt with blocks, the block design can be independent from the layout design. There are traditional designs like Monkey Wrench and Storm at Sea that have specific layouts that make up the pattern, but many block-based quilts can be arranged in different layouts.

While I had sketched out this design initially with all the blocks arranged in the same orientation, I am not sure I like it that way. 

Here are the three basic options to put these blocks together:

1. Aligned in the same direction

2. Alternating blocks (checker board)

3. Alternate rows

I'll continue to ponder.
