What is brewing in my sewing studio..

I am working on another single size quilt at the moment. Instead of my conventional quilt style (centre panel with borders here), I decided to try out a different style. Mainly inspired by the many beautiful quilts produced by Anita of Handmade With Love, I decided to mix and match and play around with colours a little bit. Yet I didn't want to go overboard with the design, so I chose a simple rectangular log cabin design.    

The main fabric in the centre is the patch ready yellow fabric by KOKKA, followed by Ikea stripe fabric. The bright blue fabric actually has tiny polka dots is by Moda fabrics in the third line. The finished size would come up to 140cm width x 190cm length. 
Hope to start quilting by next week right after I embroider the recipient's name who will get this quilt for his 9th birthday from his mom..*sweet*

What do you think of the design or/and fabric choice..? Would you have done somethings differently? 

Sew along update - At what stage are you now..? 
This week 22 - 28 Feb (1 week), we are preparing the binding, button loop, self cover button and interfacing (steps 1-4 on the instruction page)  Pin It
