lost, not found & a small, quilt-y finish

Finally, I've finished the quilt top
for my new, great-nieces' birth quilt/gift.
She was born on the 4th of May,
so now that she's here and named, 
and I've quilted her name into the quilt,
I've stitched up the binding this weekend.
It's a cute finish, if I do say so myself.

So, the Finally?  The: what's been the hold-up? 
Well, as I shared a few weeks ago,
I COULD NOT find my Lil Twister ruler.
It wasn't in the "ruler stand" where it should have been...
I searched high and low,
at least twice daily all that week and the next, 
through folds of fabric in stacks,
through the small, "magic crock".
(the Magic Crock - that held over 50 patterns!!),
and I never did find it.
I finally gave in and bought a new Lil Twister ruler.
Now it will show up, won't it?

Something I did while searching for the missing ruler,
was to take a picture of the layout of the fabrics...
pieced charm squares, ready for sub-cutting.
I like to take pics beforehand as it helps me to "step back" 
to see if there are any little fabric squares not playing well with their neighbors.

Maybe I should "step-back" and
start taking photos of my rulers after I use them? :)
