Pink Quilt (Disappearing Nine Patch) Part 1

Another gift quilt, since pink is not my colour, though I've had the urge to make a pink quilt, so making it as a gift is ideal.

This one will be a Disappearing Nine Patch (Tutorial here).

Bought all the fabrics before christmas, but am only now getting to the sewing part.

Fabrics for the front (all between 2$ and 5$/m)

Here's the backing fabric (2$/m):

I cut everything into 4" strips.

I'm sewing together some of these strips in groups of 3 to save some piecing work. I'm only using fabrics that I have lots of. For the other fabrics, I'll sew individual squares or use half a strip. I guess I can be pretty random when piecing the different hues and patterns, as everything will be mixed up again when the Nine Patches are cut to make the Disappearing Nine Patches.
