Scrappy Disappearing Nine Patch wip

Over the last several months, I have been collecting and swapping 2.5 inch squares from numerous quilters. I started assembling these squares into 12" blocks about 2 weeks ago. So far I have 24 12" blocks completed. Here is where I think out loud due to my lacking mathematical ability: Each 12" block contains 4 -9 patchwork squares that are 2.5", so I have 36- 2.5" blocks per 12" square. Therefore, 36 times 24 equals equals 864-2.5" squares. I think that is correct. I think I need at least half that again before this will be big enough but here is where it is at so far.
I really like how scrappy it is! You can click on the pictures for a closer look.

Did you notice that I now have three columns? Thanks to the houseofkrom, I figured out how to adapt the layout. I feel really cool since I edited html code but only because I used this tutorial.

I hope everyone is having a happy Tuesday! Thanks to everyone who suggested ideas on my postage stamp layout. I am currently making a few more squares and may put up a couple more layouts due to some great suggestions.
