All Star Baby Quilt

I had scraps left over from making this baby blanket and wanted to use them to make a quilt for my nephew-on-the-way.
The fabric is All Star by Riley Blake. I just love this line for a boy. It has been discontinued but I'm excited because they do have new color ways coming out. I also had a bit of Heather Ross' blue VW fabric in my stash and I think it worked well with it.
I made as many 4 1/2" squares as I could, drew a diagonal line down the middle. Sewed a quarter inch on each of of the line, cut down the middle line and voila! New squares with two different prints. I sewed the squares together, added a 1 1/2" blue border and then a 4" border. I quilted a quarter inch from each edge of the blue border and stipple quilted the rest.On the back I used the large star print in a flannel for extra softness. :)
 Now it's time to start working on some bibs and burpies!
