I finally got around to binding my Butter Churn quilt. I originally posted about it HERE.
Until I tried to write the title of this post, I didn't even think about a quilt called Butter Churn having so much butter yellow in it!
In case you're wondering, the pattern is by Sherri K. Falls from "This and That". I used both Portugal and Prayer Flag fabric lines.
Although I quilted it a few months ago, it took a bit for me to finish, because I had a binding fabric all picked out and ready to go, but I just couldn't bring myself to add it to the quilt.
The color was just too dull.
The fabric went with the quilt well, I was just afraid I would always wish I had used something else.
So as much as I wanted to put the binding on and have this quilt finished up, I waited until I found something that made me feel like it was ready to go.
This polka dot fabric was the one!
I'm glad I waited.
I know there are lots of pictures of this quilt.
I was just so happy to have it finished that I got a little carried away!
And for the birthday treat part, here's a picture of the cupcakes we made my youngest son for his birthday recently.
This little guy is a minion from the movie Despicable Me 2.
My son likes the funny little minions and all the trouble they cause, so this was a great surprise for him.
It's a tradition at my house to surprise the birthday boy with a fun, specially decorated cake.
Every birthday brings out our creativity and makes us figure out something new!
