The Spiky Quilt - DQS#10!

We have had rumbling thunder here all afternoon, the sort of thunder that makes the window's rattle, a hot and steamy day, perfect for starting a new project! I have decided to make a start on my quilt for the 10th round of the flickr DQS. I'm going for a rainbow palette and am using some sheets from my Judy Niemyer Japanese Fan pattern I purchased over the holidays.

I have called it the Spiky Quilt or rather Matilda has, she came in and said "What are you sewing Mummy?" and had a look at what was on the ironing board and announced "Ohhhh, you are sewing a spiky quilt!" Not too sure if I'm going to do it in a circle yet or an S shape or something else. Here is the first quarter done though.
