Starting a Lawn Diamond Quilt

On Sunday, I returned from a 10 day Baseball Tour.  I had such a great time, and it took me a couple of days to recover.  Yesterday, I pulled some solids to make a Lawn Diamond Quilt.  Before I left on my trip, I had purchased the pattern from Sarah.  I seldom use a pattern, but I really liked the look of this one.

This is my fabric pull, all from stash.  I checked in B&W to make sure the fabric had good contrast.

This is a paper-piece pattern, and it included a sheet for coloring in your placement.  That didn't work for me.  I even tried putting small snips of fabric in the coloring segments.  It was a no-go.  

Since fabric placement is critical for this design, I decided to use the actual papers that I printed for the paper-piecing to decide on fabric placement.  This is as far as I've gotten.  I hope to make some good progress on Friday and the weekend.
May your bobbins always be full,
