6 am--not this chick!

The theme for the November Project Quilting Challenge is to be inspired by 6 am.  Those of you who know me well know that 6 am and I don't get along very well.  I am NOT a morning person!  It's hard to be inspired by 6 am when I'd rather be in bed.  So, here is my rooster, who had better not dare to wake me up.  I call him "Cock-a-doodle-DON'T."  He's small--13'' x 11'' and is made from Kaffe Fassett fabrics (the background is one of my hand-dyes).  He is kinda cute.
The binding is fused.  I cut 1" strips, then used a decorative rotary cutter blade to trim the strips.  After I fused the binding on, I stitched it down.  I like this finish for a small project.
