Quilting design and start of quilting

I finally landed on a quilting design for Emily's quilt.  In a previous post, I lamented the fact that I hadn't drawn anything that I liked.  So, I hit my collection of books, and friends gave me inspiration from some of theirs.  Here is what I landed on overall and the center motif:

I'm marking the design lightly on the squares, using a circle template and a straight edge, along with a Bohn water erasable blue pen.

And here are the tools that I use while I'm quilting the design:  both of the quilting templates are from Jamie Wallen, Quilters Apothecary. There is s 3" inside circle and a straight edge.  I really like his quilting templates because they have handles to hold the template steady on my sit-down long arm machine.

And here is what the block looks like all stitched out, which is slightly different than my sketch.

  I hope it will feel young and bright!  What do you think?
