'Shattered rainbow' quilt top

I think about 3 weeks ago I saw this graphic made by Andy Gilmore:


I was fascinated by the colour combination on this one. There is some order in this mess ;) So... I bought 4 charm packs of Kona cotton (dark, pastel, dusty and classic) to make it. After I finished what I previously planned, I thought the quilt would make a great picknick blanket.



And here it is: 'Shattered rainbow' quilt :D

I've sewn some emerald and candy green border and some more half-squares around. I used those charm squares which I had left. I really used almost all of those 4 charm packs. I'm only left with few blue ones, about 10 red and some brown squares...



I ordered fabric for backing yesterday. Should be here tomorrow and I can't wait to continue... [the fabric for the 'Amethyst quilt' haven't arrived yet... I'm starting to worry. It's about time!]

Hope you like it :)
