Turning my frown upside down

Earlier this evening, I dined at a local Italian restaurant with some students from my quilt class.  The calzone was quite nice.  I asked them to box up a piece of chocolate cake for me to eat in my hotel room tonight because, as you might know, I am somewhat partial to chocolate cake.

Sadly, the cake was disappointing.  OK, it was a little beyond disappointing:  it was gross.  I was sad.

I decided to dive into my quilt project stack here in my hotel room and pull out something that would make me happy again.

This quilt did the trick:

How cute is this?  The light is not great in my hotel room, so the bright orange polka dot border looks reddish in the photo.

I bought this kit from my good friend at Sturbridge Quilting and Sewing when I taught there last week.

Another quilt to add to my to-be-quilted pile.

It's great! How will you quilt it? I could see so many things working - fat gears/tires, geometrics like street signs, or even a car shape echoed.
