More HG and an idea for layout/sashing?

 I debated for a long time about the coloring for this block (District 2 - Masonry).  The original pattern has it in all grays - but I like the color contrast against the black, so added the brown handle and "rock" fabric to give it a bit of dimension.

(District 13 - Graphite Nuclear) seriously my favorite square to date on this quilt.  The pictures don't do it justice, that silvery fluid fabric is PERFECT and lends itself to a futuristic feel.  LOVE!

I've been spending a bit of time trying to figure out how I want to lay this quilt out.  Since it's still fairly new (I've not seen a completed one yet), I was toying with the idea of mimicking the district symbols like these:

Liljabs was gracious and sweet and created a pattern for the word DISTRICT

Which looks amazing - so I put it with the square like this

And then toyed around with doing some laurel leaves for the sides.  It's not circular, but would give the same feel.  I'm still not sure this is the path I"m going to take with this - but considering for now.

I feel like those leaves are too big..... perhaps a redo smaller sized....
