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.


  1. Adorable mini and I love your hand quilting.

  2. it's so cute! I love the secondary pattern made by the background fabric!

  3. Love the blue background. That really sets this mini apart from the rest! Great job! Thanks for entering the Modern Mini Challenge!
