Baby Ben's Quilt

I finished my quilt for my nephew-to-be, Ben, earlier this week. He is due in August, his shower was today so I can now post the quilt. This first pic is of the quilt on the frame.
Here it is finished and ready to go! I saw this quilt somewhere on the internet, I think it is called "Strip Twist", but I added my own twist by adding sashing between the blocks. I used my Accuquilt Go cutter to cut the 2 1/2" strips.
I did a meandering star pattern for the quilting.
I gave it a washing to shrink it up and soften it, I use a ton of starch when I quilt. I think it turned out really neat.
