I used my graphics program to help audition some ideas. I decided on a square in a square which were also used as part of the original pattern.

My daughters' favourite colour is blue and I wanted to bring more of the light blue out from the center. Framing the whole piece with the darker blue and using it for the outer pieces of the squares in a square would leave just enough for the flange binding.

I like how the white looks, extended into the outer border. Next up making 30 square in a square blocks, they were 4'' finished. With the inner border and the square in a square blocks and then a final dark blue border added 16'' to the length. Perfect!
Next up getting some backing material and then the big question, how to quilt it. I have a couple ideas floating around.
