quilters Question

To all my fellow quilters out there I send you a question. How do you pick what design for your quilt or do you pick a design first and then choose the colors. For the last 3 quilts I have bought a pattern or like for my first I joined a quilt along so it was pretty easy. I just had to get the fabric. Now I have some fabric but am unsure of the design I want to do. I was thinking of doing a coin quilt with these fabrics what do you think? or could anybody suggest a better pattern? some of the fabric I have only a 1/4 yard cut of.do they all go together good enough?
new quilt?
I want this to be a lap size quilt. any help or suggestions would be much appreciated thanks!!!!

latest quilt

I fell like I have dropped of the blogging scene for so long. lol I had to keep this quilt a secret so I didn't really post at all. I haven't really been quilting or sewing anything really I just haven't really felt like it but hopefully this week I can get back into the swing of things. Well here are pics of the present quilt I made for my Mother-in-laws birthday. IT is the biggest quilt I have made and I really love how the quilting turned out. The binding wast the hardest part. Picking the colors was a lot of fun and I got the pattern from of fransson I really like it and it was really easy to put together. I added two squares in the border just to put my twist on it.
