9 Patch Gone Crazy!

What do you do with a bunch of 9 patch blocks when you're a crazy quilter? Welllllll, i've pondered on these for, oh......well.......four or five years and finally played with them. I first cut them in half diagonally and attached a beige print then I stacked several full blocks and chopped them up at various angles and re-sorted them and stitched them. Not the most wonderful cq in the world, but for a bed quilt, this will work out great! I've just done machine embroidered feather stitch so it will be washable and fairly durable. Once its complete, i'll get better pics. Any suggestions on quilting this sucker? LOL!!
