Starch Conquered and Composition Created

In the *real world* of creating I have been pinning together my rainbow quilt sandwich.  For those of you with the awesome starch advice - the misting won!  I was able to really get out those micro-wrinkles using a bit of mist to tame the fabric.  Thank you!
I am also using pinmoors for the first time ever.  So far it is way nicer than using safety pins...I'll have to let you know how it fares when it comes to the actual quilting on the machine process!
In the virtual computer design world I created this.  I am considering creating this using neutral fabrics such as a palette of grays, maybe in linen?
How did I come up with the composition?  So glad you asked...
You may remember the photo from the Portland Japanese Gardens (below) which I shared on my last post. I loved it so much I decided to see whether I could translate this to something I could create in a three dimensional quilt form.
I computerized it a bit.  You can see how I overlaid the design below in red.
There are a few other photos using similar steps that I'd like to fool around with as well.  What a cool way to mess around with layouts!  This could go on forever...
What do you think?  What are your WIPs?

This will be so interesting! I like the idea of neutrals. It's all about the value, and this will showcase that concept.
