Need some layout help...too many options!

I am working on a quilt of valor for my nephew who was deployed to Iraq earlier this year and have almost all the blocks ready for it. I need help!!! I specifically chose the log cabin block because it is so versatile, but now I have too many options and would love to get some feedback on them. Please look at all the layouts below and then vote in the sidebar to let me know which one I should do. Ideally, I would like to add four more blocks, but if the design does not lend itself well to that, then I will just make the last red and white log cabin and finish it at this size.
Thanks in advance for your help! Here are the options.

Alternating Corners

Barn Raising

Blue Center with Arrows

Straight Diamonds

Swirling Out

Wonky Solid Diamonds
Wonky Diamonds

I like them all but kept going back to the first one.

I like the swirling out layout!

Michele said...

Swirling out here too.
FWIW, I like all of the ones which preserve the color saturation, the wonky diamonds not so much.

Hi Jen,
Have you tried placing the blue blocks in the corners? What would happen then?
I like the arrows because I like designs that go out from the center.

I liked the 1st and the last..does one call YOUR name? SOmetimes if I cannot decide, I take out one I DON"T like. Pretty soon, the one I DO like makes itself known. I love the colors!
