Need help with tile pattern for 12x24 tiles in bathtub alcove

I've been looking online for a simple way to design a tile pattern, and was really surprised I haven't been able to find one. I've found some drawings and photos, but none show the complete walls.

The manufacturer of the tile I bought recommends 1/8 grout line for 1/3 offset, or 3/16 grout line for 1/2 offset. I thought I would do the 1/3 offset but need to come up with a pattern. Everyone says to ask your installer about these things but he says it's up to the client. So I've attempted two different tile patterns. I tried to maximize tile size and minimize small pieces. One wall is 60" and 2 walls are 32" --

Did I get it right? Do you have a preference?
