WIP Wed and Goodnight Irene!


Yes it is Wednesday already and I am making some progress on my "Goodnight Irene" quilt top. Terry at Terry's Treasures is hosting a sew-along for this quilt. 

2014 Sew-Along 
So here are my blocks that I am working on. I am having some trouble with the seams matching but overall the blocks are not too bad. 
 

I decided to use some red, white and blue fat quarters I had on hand (you know ...use what you have instead of buying so much..haha). I am sashing it with navy kona. The random piecing is working well. Instead of cutting all the squares I stripped groups of 4 together and then cut and arranged. The 16 patches went quilt. The x blocks not so much! I also had trouble with 1/4" seams and scant. I need to be more careful and hopefully lesson was learned. I will see how loud I scream when I am putting the rows together. :)

Also linking up with Lee at Freshly Pieced for WIP Wednesday

  2. Your blocks look great! The width of your quarter inch seams can definitely make a huge difference in your blocks.

  9. It's amazing how the fabric choices really make everyone's Goodnight Irene quilts look differently. Yours is going to be so nice with the darker background fabric and the reds and blues.
