100 Quilts for Kids Contribution

First, please excuse the horrific picture, it was the only one I took before my camera died and I had to wrap it up and get in the car to donate it.  The white balance is REALLY off making the quilt look majorly washed out. 
But...I did get it finished before the deadline, and I do like it.  And I did get it to Miles Memorial hospital to the Maternity ward to be given to a new baby that needs a blankie.  I have done this a few times in the past and it has always been well received. 
This quilt is the Starflower quilt by Angela Nash from the book Modern Quilts from the Blogging Universe.   I love this pattern, it is a basic star block but done in a way that the stars are actually the background making these beautiful flowers pop out as the primary design.  It is just neat how it all works out.  This quilt came out to be 60"x60" and was made of mostly blue and green scraps with a little purple thrown in with Moda's 200 thread count muslin as the white.
I am linking this post up with 100 Quilts for Kids over on Swim Bike Quilt.  You should really go over and take a look at all of the properly photographed quilts for some major inspiration.
