My final layout.......

I changed out the light lavender 4 patch squares that were in the far left row and cut some more plain squares for a better match to fill into the rows that have 9 squares in them.  Now I have to decide on setting triangles.  I mentioned before that this was inspired by the Diagonal Madness quilt in one of the Kaffe books.
His is deeper toned and then has the added border of 9 patches.  As much as I like the border, I'm not sure I'll put it on mine.  I just wanted a fast, instant gratification quilt made of spare parts that were already sewn.  I'll think about it and see what my company today says about it.  My former co-workers from the quilt shop in Batavia are coming over.  I left the job up there 11 years ago and we try to get together at least once a year.

Sounds like you will have fun with you visitors. The blocks really look well together. Chris

love the look and the instant grad thing I totally get-- but that 9-patch border is the bomb.

Yours is definitely brighter. I get the urge to get it done. The 9 patch border really is spectacular though.
That's when you have the 2 to compare. Once you chose a border for yours, I'm sure it will look wonderful an d then it will be done.

I see so many patterns in this quilt. I really like the squares you put in with the four patches. This is great.

you have made good use of your scraps once again! I really, really need to sit down this winter and get busy cutting scraps, I took a whole bag with us on our trip and didn't cut one piece - I just didn't feel like it. I need to.

Such a lovely look from a simple block. It is amazing what the color and fabrics can do when someone knows how to put them together!!!! I like the block border. It will be fun to see what your friends think.
