In addition, I went back and watched the video tutorial by Mary Porter of Fons and Porter, and at about 1:22, you can see the sample quilt she made, and the blocks are all different in orientation. So, I have to get out of my box and relax a little, and let myself go "cray-cray" with these blocks! lol I must say that all these blocks were for Swap-bot swaps, and the ones I have to make my quilt from now all came from other people, most of whom did their blocks "correctly", so I'm happy with that. Sore more experimentation is in order to make a series of blocks using 1 color/print of the block the same in all the blocks, with the other 2 colors/prints being "scrappy" to see if I can make a pattern. Should be interesting.

Here are some of my "correct" blocks
