Its supposed to be easy

DewOk this is again a last minute job. My friends birthday is on 2 May and I want to make her a quilt. But I didn't want to buy any fabric so I thought I'd use this bunch of fat quarters. I've seen a quilt as you go where the sashings go through the middle of the block like this

So these are my fabrics but what do you think of the layout. I would really value your input. I'm going to sash them with calico so that will, be the backing fabric too. I will. Use variegated threads in the bottom on the calico and then friends off Margvarets can write a message on it too.

Great idea, dear Karen, I think the quilt will turn out great!!! Can't wait to see it finished, so hurry up, May is comming soon! Happy Easter, hugs, Martina

Are you going to set the quilt on the angle like in the top photo, or keep your squares straight up and down like in your photo?
I like the off set, diagonal look of the top photo.
Your arrangement of colours is lovely and the calico should look awesome.
