My Goodnight Irene top is done! I debated a little about keeping this project a true "sew along" and doing just a few blocks a month or to keep working and not have -another- UFO/WIP laying around. Since my mom was here this week, I had plenty of time to spend sewing, so I just kept working and then I was close enough that I said, "you just need to finish this one!" I'm so glad I did! This was supposed to be a stashbuster quilt....but pink is probably the color I have the least of. I did end up buying a Fat 8th pack and a couple 1/4 yard cuts of "hot pink." Oh well...I'll bust my stash with the next quilt!
I don't think the pink squares "float" as much with the black as I've seen with the lighter backgrouds. The X's definitely are very prominent...especially in this picture!
I used Kona black...and boy oh boy, it's a lint magnet! I'll use the lint roller when it's up on the longarm. :) I also made a small design mistake...but I was too far along in the assembly to -want- to change it. I figured no one will really know unless I tell them! :) Can you see it?
Can't wait to see how everyone else is doing! Thanks again, Terry for a fun quilt idea and sew along...can't wait to see what you come up with next.
