Postage Stamp Quilt

I have had these mini charm packs for a while now, I got them quite cheap and had big plans, can't remember what the plan actually was lol.  I opened one last night to have a better look at them and laid them out into a simple 10 x 10 block.

Each charm pack has 43 squares however I opened 5 to get the prints I needed, being such a small size some were plain or only had a tiny part of the print, I needed the image to be as close to the centre as possible to allow for seam allowance.

Plan is now to sew them up into one block, add some sides and turn into a lap quilt for the lounge. No pattern used but when you google postage stamp quilt heaps of inspiration comes up and there are 3 completely different tutorials here, here and here.
I prefer number 2, basically pair and sew, but I will sew these in the 10 rows and join up, I am sure they won't all match up perfectly but I am ok with that.
