Revelrythursday2
Today was a good day. 

I had an epiphany of sorts today when I got up. I don't know about you, but I am a great project starter!! Lately, I have had this inane desire to be a great project finisher!! So of course, you know that's why I started Finish-It-Fridays…so I would actually be held accountable. 

Well, this morning I woke up and thought, "It's Thursday…I can start as many projects as I want to!!" LOL!! With that free attitude both yesterday and today, I actually started grabbing things off of my Finish-This pile!!! 🙂 So, here are the results of my day of FUN in the craft studio!! yipeeeee!!

Okay…I whipped up a sweet little quilt today!! I adore charm packs, and I had this little birdie sitting around from where I created it for my collab digi kit with Ashalee Wall…Warm Days. So I grabbed these fabric squares from the Rural Jardin charm pack!

After I sewed the squares together, I added borders…also by French General, my new jelly roll, Lumiere de Noel.

I started with the Fabric Flowers…

So at this point, I decided to quilt this by "stitching in the ditch" and doing freehanded quilting on the borders…and i adore it now!!

Boy I had a dickens of a time with the binding…

if you are a quilter reading this, don't wait months to do bindings…as you could see in my previous mini quilts, I haven't been putting a binding on. So it took quite the reading and doing to get this binding on! (thank God for the seam ripper, huh?)

if you aren't a quilter…don't worry…it's all good!! 🙂

I hand sewed the binding completely on during a movie tonight, since my internet was out for 5.5 hours!! 

Here's the finished quilt…
