Design Wall Monday

Granted, I don't have a design wall, so my cutting table will have to suffice.  In between my UFOs, I've decided to start a new project.  I can't help myself.  Really.  My 10-year old niece is redoing her bedroom and so I just have to make a quilt for her new bed.  How can I not?  I know, a silly question.  I'm sure all you other quilters totally understand.  The redeeming factor is all the fabrics are from my stash.

Anyway, according to my sister, her walls are going to be a bright teal color (hey, we're talking a 10-year old here).  Meg says it's better than the pepto pink she used to have her room.  LOL!  Anyway, the other colors are black and white (a zebra comforter), and lots of other electric/neon palettes as throw pillows.  This is a girl who isn't afraid of color!  And, yes, she is a quilter in the making.  :o)

So here is what I designed in my EQ program.  Very simple and straight-forward, as it will get a lot of daily wear and tear.  I kept the bright colors minimal so that it doesn't overpower, what with the bright wall color and all.  The finished size will be 73x85 (blocks are 12" finished), so it should fit her trundle day-bed just fine.  With all those pieces to cut, I'm ever so grateful to have my Accuquilt GO! cutter.

So what is on your design wall this week?  Pop over to Judy's and share, share, share.  :o)

Have a colorful day,
