Cute Quilt for a Little Boy

Here is a baby quilt for a little boy. My new customer, Melissa, made this top for her baby nephew. It is only her second quilt! I think this will be a lovely gift for the little fellow.
She was not sure of the pattern, but a closer look reveals that it has both large and small rail-fence blocks. Here is the large

and here is the block with the smaller, narrower strips.

This looks like a great quilt top for a beginner! Since the fabrics are fairly busy, we chose a neutral tan thread called "Baguette" by Signature. For the free-motion quilting design, I picked up on those spirals and the sort of sunburst motifs in one of the blue fabrics.

The backing is a cute perky polka-dot print.

I love how the little rail-fence blocks make a zig-zaggy pattern.
