Exuberant Winner! (and other stuff)

I am so sorry for the delay in posting this!  My desktop computer has decided to die, a horrible, slow death, and then I lost internet for a few hours today.  And, of course, I got focused on cleaning.  My carpet is steamed, and Zeb's toys are all put away.

Anyway...  The random number generator gave me this:


...which means that the winning comment was:


Congratulations, Brooke!  And to answer your question, this is actually a fairly easy quilt to make.  The curves are very gentle, so it's just a matter of finding your centers (easy with the notches from you GO! die) and taking your time.  Keep your eye on this blog.  Somewhere in the last couple of weeks in January, I'll be starting a Double Wedding Ring Quilt-Along.  

E-mail me at gyrmalcyn [dot] go [dot] pop {at} gmail [dot] com with your shipping information, and I'll get this quilt by the end of the week.  I still have to wash and photograph the final product, but I should be doing that tomorrow evening.

Actually, working on finishing up the binding was part of my Friday Night Sew-in project.  I did a lot of "unsewing" taking the binding off, and then figuring out where I'd gone wrong.  

And, for those of you who are curious, the batik that was used just once:


Now, I'm absolutely psyched to see that I've reached 89 followers (for whatever reason, Blogger keeps showing one more than I actually have)!  So, I plan on celebrating when I reach 100, so spread the word.

When I get to 100, I'll be giving away my Mary's Fan quilt top, and the fabric I'd planned on using for the binding:

This top measures 92" X 92", and contains 384 fabrics in the fan blades.  Yes, that means that each fan blade is unique.  

I had a lot of fun making this top, but I'm not in love with it anymore, and it's so not my style anymore.  My tastes have changed so much in the two or three years since putting the last stitch in.  I'd much rather that this top go to someone who will give it the love it deserves.

I was hoping that my email went through - but I've not heard back so I thought I'd jot a note here.
