Red and Aqua

I made a red and aqua quilt for a friend of mine.  I introduced her to quilting so I would have someone to share my obsession with.  It worked a little too well.  She is awesome and adventurous and tries patterns I would never attempt.  As a just because you are great present, I made her this quilt.
 I quilted it very simply through the diagonals of all the squares.  I didn't get a single pucker, so I'm clearly doing something right and improving my technique.
 The back is my usual thing with scraps from the front.  Originally, I was going to sprinkle the grey stars through the front, but I just didn't get the contrast in values sharp enough.  They work fine on the back.
 I'm going to have to try those stars sprinkled in patchwork again.  It's a good idea.  i just need the right fabrics.
