Finish it up Friday

My usual Friday linky party is taking the summer off, so I googled "Friday Finish Linky" and found this great blog, Quokka Quilts.  According to Laura, "A quokka is a West Australian marsupial which lives mostly on Rottnest Island, Western Australia."

Now I really, really want to visit Australia!

Today's finish is a Fat Quarter Fun quilt, "Hot Tamale" from Villa Rosa Designs.  The fabrics are mostly from Anthropology, and I quilted it myself on Meggie.  Sadly, the thread color isn't visible in this photo, but it is a wonderful multi-colored thread from YLI.

Of course, I used Susie's Magic Binding to finish it!

This pretty thing is going to Camille in Jackson, Wyoming.  Camille has a gift for always saying "I want that one" of a quilt that is already promised.  So Camille, this one is for you!

Come back tomorrow for the announcement of my "Silly Me Giveaway."
