12 Quilts in '12 May Link Up!

12 Quilts in ’12 — May Link Up!
Hello and welcome to the May installment of the 12 Quilts in ’12 Challenge! I’m hosting here on my blog, but Saf and Amy are playing along, too. We hope you will join in!
Well, May has come and almost gone.  Wow.  I had alot going on this month, but I managed to complete a baby quilt that had been put aside for several years.  Still have no idea what to do with it, but it is DONE!
Using up some repro fabric and adding some applique
I just made this up with scraps from so 1930s repro fabric that I had in my scrap bin.  I thought it was cute and boyish. 

Then I added 2 applique airplanes and 2 applique boats, mainly because it looked so plain.
And of course, it is the predictable cat magnet.  It might end up being Violets wubbie.  She is obsessed with it.  I had trouble getting a picture of it, sans cat.

Of course that doesn't compare to trying to get it quilted.  Both of my little stinkers were creating a difficult work environment, but it was soooo cute.

OK time to tell me what you have finished for May, and link a picture of it below.
