Baby quilt for the hospital

Our patchwork group is working for a charity this year. We are repeating what we did 2 years ago and quilting for the hospital, more precisely the special care baby unit, where my friend B works.
 I have made this little quilt already and am working on another one, well maybe. We will give them on the 16th of May so the deadline is approaching.

 I started thinking of a quick project. Really I was kidding myself, there are a lot of half square triangles in this design, 8 per star in fact. Each is finished at 1".

 I used some purple fleece on the back, and only quilted around the star. It's a good size to practise free motion quilting.
At the end the back looks really interesting, and very soft.
The corners are rounded to be less dangerous for tiny infants.

I hope this little quilt will make somebody happy.
Enjoy your sewing.
