Default OBW with Dream Big Flower Panel

Some time ago, I decided I was going to make the king sized quilt for our bed with Dream Big panels. I ought 5 of them and came up with a design. I went out and bought some batik for borders, and was just waiting till I had a bit more experience before it took it on.
, I read this thread on the board: https://www.quiltingboard.com/main-f...s-t309309.html
and started thinking about a OBW with the Dream Big panels, because I love the colour, but I'm not really a flower person. I purchased two of the Maxine Rosenthal books, picked up 2 more panels, one for a wall hanging for over the bed, and stacked the other six to cut up for hexies. I cut the strips at 3 3/4" since that seems to be the most common size and I didn't have any reason to try something different. I've been rearranging the hexies for a few days now and I think I have a layout I'm happy with. Now it's time to start sewing the strips together. This is a whole lot of fun! This is what I've come up with so far:
