I've got sunshine!

This quilt makes me so happy every time I look at it. Now that it is done I can't wait to find a spot to hang it up in my newly painted craft room.

This little guy has been sitting in UFO pile for quite awhile waiting for me to finish quilting him. I didn't really have the motivation until the Mini Quilt Challenge from  Ellison Lane Quilts. It was just the push I needed to pick him up and finally finish that hand quilting.

He finished up at a tiny 10 x 12 but all those prints are colorful enough to really make a statement. I used a tutorial from Oh Fransson that I knew I had to make as soon as she put it up. I didn't have the patience to make a full sized quilt with her awesome stars but I knew I could commit to a little mini. I just love everything about it-even the fussy cut little turtle star...so cute!!

 P.S. Please forgive my photography skills. I am still trying to figure out to take better pictures of my quilts.
