Friday Finish and Giveaway Winner

Whew!  I'm halfway to my 30 Quilts in 60 Days!

Here are the quilts I've quilted and bound since my last "30 Days" post.

First up, a Fat Quarter Fun quilt from last year.  I'm calling it "Prince Charming," since most of the fabric is from Tula Pink's "Prince Charming" collection:

Next is another Fat Quarter Fun project, "Gemini."

Made from 30s reproduction fabrics, this is a BIG quilt.  It nearly covers the top of my king-sized bed.  Even so, it was fast to quilt because I quilted an allover meander pattern.

Second finish this week is "Chain Reaction," sewn from Kate Spain's "Terrain" collection.  I experimented with a "chain link squares" quilting pattern.  I love the way this quilting design crinkles up when the quilt is washed:

In fact, I liked it so much, I used it again for "Line Dance," made with a Kate Spain "Central Park" jelly roll:

I quilted the chain pattern in the background and loops-and-swirls in the prints:

I didn't quilt this one, but it's going to Japan so I wanted to show it to you before I mailed it.  This is My Little Sailor's graduation quilt (from 2007).  The design is a Judy Niemeyer paper-pieced pattern, "4th of July."

 Sonya Chin custom quilted it -- isn't the quilting stunning?

And now, the giveaway winner!

This is how I tricked you into reading through the whole post!

After jumping through some statistical hoops, the winner of the giveaway is Hueisei, in Malaysia!

I'm delighted, because Hueisei was an early follower of my blog and always says nice things in the comments.  Hueisei, I'll be emailing you asking for your mailing address and we'll see how my post office does with this international mailing!

Linking up to Sarah's "Whoop Whoop" and Richard and Tanya's "Link a Finish Friday," and Crazy Mom Quilts "Finish it up Friday."
