I need your advice

Oh, hello...  Remember me?  The one who blogs sporadically?  At least I'm consistently inconsistent...

I've been gathering polka dot fabrics for the last several years, and have just started the cutting process based on how I *thought* I was going to make this quilt.  But then this weekend, I had a *brilliant* idea!   (It's always brilliant when you first think of it, right????)  So this morning, I decided to lay it out and take some pictures of some different options.

This is where you come in!

I'd love to hear your thoughts on the layouts below, and either what you would do,  or what you think would look good, or what you think would look hideous.  Generally, any thoughts you have.

The background squares are 6.5 inches and will finish at 6inches.  The entire quilt will be queen/close to king size.  96x96.

Option 1.  This was my original design thought.  Raw edge circles on each 6 inch square.

Option 2.  This was the *brilliant* idea over the weekend.  Instead of a circle on each square, one over the seam.

Option 3.  Similar to option 2, but with a larger circle.

Option 4.  The thought was to stagger the larger and smaller circles.  To be honest, I don't really like this one at all.  But hey - I thought I'd throw it out there...

Option 5.  Yes - it's similar to option 4, but the circles don't cover EVERY.SINGLE.INTERSECTION.

Option 6.  This is similar to option 5, but uses all the same size circles over the entire quilt.  

What would YOU do?  What option do you think is the most "pleasant to the eye"?

Can't wait to hear what you think!
