Fast forward to a year later, the blocks emerge and I decided to re-purpose the whole thing. I started free styling with the panel piece in the center, added some border and added some of those blocks as a testament to the original quilt. I did a bit of applique trying to fill in the red borders cause they were looking pretty massive.

The final result is a neat quilt top for an energetic boy who has got some BAM POW moves of his own. I asked Tracey the long armer to use an energetic pantograph to quilt it and I think it works quite nicely.
