I'm happy to say that I finished my May A Lovely Year of Finishes goal...and even a few days early! I enjoy machine quilting smaller quilts better--they are easier to manhandle and they go more quickly!
This quilt is a baby gift for my newest niece, born last August. I just need to bind it and then send it to her! You can read more about the design/fabric choices here, and see my beginning of the month May goal here.
I did a little wavy freeform quilting in the background of each pennant section (including under the pennants that flap!) and then tried an orange peel design in the fourpatches. I really like the concept of the orange peel quilting, but I definitely need a little practice on it.

Now to decide what my June goal will be...
