In a Dash - My first Charity Quilt

The LQS issued a challenge. Pick up a $3. package containing fabrics to make 1 block. Make a quilt using that block and any fabrics from your own stash. All quilts and money collected will be donated to a local retirement home. I picked a blue package since it's my favourite colour. 

My block turned out to be a churn dash block. I picked the fabrics before I knew what I was going to make. After much agonising I decided to make a quilt from a churn dash block using the original block as the centre.

I named the quilt "In a Dash" because it's a churn dash within a churn dash.

I used a quick turn method to sandwich the quilt. I quilted it in the ditch from the front and the back then added diagonal lines in the 4 corners. My label was attached and the quilt laundered.

I will deliver it today when the LQS opens.

Opinions Needed

I've been working on a pattern I call "Starry, Starry Night". I've changed it more times than I can remember. DH is sick of giving his opinion since I keep changing it anyway. I'm just not sure it's done. Tell me what you think. Don't be shy and don't worry about hurting my feelings.
