Starting a New Quilt - while the current one is still on the design wall

So what else is new? I'm starting a new quilt while the previous one is still on the design wall.  (You can't say you don't do this.... I've seen your blogs, and your UFOs.)  It'll spark my synapses to start something new, and maybe get this new quilt done on time (beginning of February - new granddaughter). Besides I'm having pink withdrawal symptoms... NEED PINK!

The pattern will be the same as her Grandpa's quilt seen here:

Of course, grandgirl's will be pink, yellow and lime green (my favorite combo) and only Xs and the pattern has been reduced to 1/2 the size... I was thinking hearts at first. Well, we will see.

Here's the pile of fabrics chosen and the pattern.

Here's the QoV on the design wall. I'm not removing that. See on the left where I've started adding the last of the blocks. The vacant blocks are white in position #1. I thought that would give it a finished look, but it seems a bit confusing... What do you think?   (As usual, the sewing room is cold, so I've plugged in the space heater again. Socket is right in the middle of the quilt! What were they thinking? 
Anyway, I'm linking up to A Creative Princess to show off some progress. I'll bet you all are tired of seeing this one. I'll have some baby blankie blocks for you in a couple of days.
