Redwork Quilt in Progress

I have been slowly making progress on the red star quilt. I've also seen this type of pattern called a dahlia quilt.

This is from scratch. I'm not following a particular pattern so it's a bit slow in the beginning as I decide what to do. I'm using ivory 18-ct Aida cloth stitched with DMC floss burgundy 221.

I'm only working on it during break time at work, so 15 minute increments don't let you get too far. This is roughly 2.5 hours-worth of stitching. Of course, I'm also chatting with my coworkers as I stitch, so I'm not going all that fast anyway. It's almost exactly 5 inches long. I'm planning on this fitting a 1:12 scale double bed.

How do you like it?
