Purple Oriental 9 Patch Pizzazz

Here's a quilt I made to try out a new technique, I found in the 9-Patch Pizzazz book by Judy Sisneros. It is only 39 inches wide to fit on a wall in a very small bathroom. The first picture is the entire quilt with the second showing details of the four fabrics (Crane & Mum, Purple fan, gold print and purple Laural Burch waves). It is a very quick quilt to design and sew! At first all of the movement was from top left to bottom right. But I accidently flipped a row and sewed it going the wrong direction. I hate to un-sew (rip out stiches)! Since I actually liked the change in direction so much, I re-worked the layout for the bottom three rows.
