Laying out the Blooming Nine-Patch Quilt

I brought all the prepared nine patches and squares to lay out my Blooming Nine-Patch.   I love that we have a king size bed at the condo so that I can lay it all out, but I even ran out of room when I got to the outter layers.   

This quilt starts out by laying out the three center squares followed by nine patches and squares.  The colors bloom out.  While I do not like the colors I chose, I love how this pattern goes together and it radiates out from the center.     
 Adding more rows..  I like it so far....

Adding more rows.....  eekkk... don't like that orange   
All blocks are laid out...I'm wondering what was I thinking when I bought these fabrics.. ... I can see this will probably be a cottage quilt..wink wink..

All the rows are stacked up and numbered ready to sew in the right order.
Tomorrow I sew..

Ohhhh so pretty. I just love blooming 9 patches. If I would only get mine quilted, I would have a new bed spread myself! You might just have been the trigger to start on that!

I keep thinking I need to make one of these one day but picking fabrics can be tricky...
