Design Floor Monday

Here's what's on my design floor today.
It's a quilt for my younger grandson. I've been working on this for a while now and I'm finally thinking the end is in sight. I loosely used this pattern.
  From this book.
 I say loosely because I've changed it quite a lot. I've made the blocks bigger and I'm making it square instead of rectangular. I've also modified the train and added cars, planes, and boats to the plain blocks. Now I just have to finish ironing on the rest of the borders and blocks and applique them. You might notice that there are many small circles involved, so that should be interesting! I'm really happy with how it's looking so far and can't wait to actually finish.
