Oh my goodness!  Great job but I don't envy you quilting that.  You are sure not afraid to tackle patterns and ideas I'd be overwhelmed with just considering!  

 

thanks.  I am planning on just doing a loose meander, avoiding the pockets.  I had thought about SID across them, but decided I spent too much work on them to hide them.

An all over meander avoiding those centers will be challenging enough.  I haven't quite learned the "look ahead" of where you are stitching yet.

Looks like a bow tie block.

I wont be quilting it for a while, so I may change my mind...

It looks like a bowtie block to me too.  There is a block called the "Ten Minute" block that involves 5 squares, only 3 seams and done in 10 minutes that is really the bowtie block when finished.  Here's a link to a demonstration..  https://youtu.be/sgAZ3_xdkGw

I made several blocks using this technique just to see if the 10 minute time was true.  And yes, it only took 10 minutes to make each block.

I had forgotten about that block!  It's great when you need a really quick quilt.  Thanks for sharing.

that's exactly how mine was constructed.  but much smaller.  I think it would have been easier to work with larger.  my inserts were only 3" square.

That is very small.  But it turned out beautiful.  Congratulations on not giving up.
