Busy Bee Quilt

My DIL asked me to make her baby's quilt from this fabric.  I started another quilt here, but didn't like it so I chose this pattern and made this quilt.  After both quilts were finished, she chose the other quilt.  I didn't care which quilt she chose.  I make them all with love and hope someone will love them someday.
This pattern is "Shake, Rattle and Roll" from Praire Sky Quilting. 
 This leaf and ribbon pattern turned out pretty good.  I am still an intermediate quilter, so it isn't perfect, but I liked my progress.
It is hard to see the flower quilted inside the large star. I still haven't learned to choose thread colors when free motion quilting. It is one of the things I need to work on.  I quilted in a gold thread and thought it would show up more.
I quilted swirls in the red pinwheels.
 I liked this straight line quilting on the outside borders.
Blogger didn't let me remove this photo.  Anyone know how to do this?
 This is the flower inside the large star.
 This is the leaf pattern you saw earlier.
 This yellow stripe goes the length of the quilt.  I mistakenly cut the backing to small so had to do a creative, artistic repair.
I named this quilt "Busy Bee Quilt," but I may change it when it gets chosen from my baby quilt stash for another grandbaby. I like that the red pinwheels stand out.  I hope it warms a sweet grandchild some day.
