Design book - a quilt for me

I have a quilt in mind for myself... I'm stealing the 2 half yards I loved and made my market bags out of stash fabric.  I've designed in knit and in crochet, and even sewing... is it the same in quilting?  grrr... the design I like I chose because it's simple and made big enough, could feature the fabrics well.  It's just alternating half-square triangles and 4 patches...

Perhaps I'll begin in my usual manner: with swatches and sketches

edit:  good news! I found the square I've been drawing, it's called a Jewel Box. http://quilting.about.com/od/quiltpatternsprojects/ss/jewel_box_quilt_3.htm and on quilter'scache
