Intro and a topper

Hello everyone!  I realized I was almost done with my quilt top and had never introduced the fabric I was working with :)  So, top picture is the fabric I received from Gari.  It's ended up that I'm not using the white fabric because it was too thin,which works out fine because she sent me about 3 yards of that dark fabric and so far I've already used 1 1/2 yards of it and almost all of the other floral!  Initially I was thinking some sort of pinwheels or something similar, then thought it might be too busy. 

I've been wanting to try out triangles forever so bought a triangle ruler and started cutting.  Here's what I came up with:
I am going to use the stripey fabric as the binding and use up the rest of the dark fabric on the backing.  I'm thinking straight lines for quilting.  Should make a nice picnic/beach blanket!
