    Suggestions for this Pattern Please

    I have just started using EQ5 (going to visit someone who has 5 6 and 7 tonight to see if it is worth upgrading to 7). To get the hang of it I spent a couple hours recreating quilts that I have made. After feeling comfortable with that I started designing my first quilt pattern but something is still not right about it so hoped some of you guys had some fresh eyes to look at it with. Our local quilt store is closing so I picked up some adorable dino fabric. I have 2 meters of the border fabric (which also includes the long strip of dino footprints that appears in the centre), 1 meter of the yellow swirls, 1 fat quarter of the centre dino fabric, 1 fat quarter of the dots around the dino centre, 1 fat quarter of the blue swirls and 1 fat quarter of the green dino footprints that appear in the small squares. I do not currently have any red but am going to the store again today (each week the percentage off increases by 5%, so they are down to 50% off this week) and am hoping to get what's needed to finish this design off.

    Please offer criticism that will help improve my design!

    The only things I would change is to rotate the 2 bear paw blocks at the bottom so they point 'in',
    and also rotate the bottom pieced border (the one with the squares). I guess I like everything to be mirror images.
    Love the bright colors!

    hmmm... if the bear was standing over the quilt, that's the way his paws would point. I think I would leave them that way, with that explanation, just for fun. It will be a cute, fun quilt.
