Bright quilt part one

I started another quilt! I wanted to finish one first before I started another so that I didn't end up with too many (cough.. more) unfinished projects and the start of a quilting stash. 

I chose my favorite colours for this quilt. I'm planning on it being a T.V. lap quilt. I started making a 9 block quilt but it looked a bit boring as I laid it lumpily over my couch to check the arrangement. I ended up cutting those blocks in quarters. 

I took it to my sewing retreat and got lots of good suggestions as to the order. I did have to make an emergency shopping expedition as I needed one last fat quarter. Four shops and two hours of driving later I found the perfect piece. I can now see the benefits of planning and buying all your material before you start a quilt.
