Goodnight Irene Sew Along, January Progress


Year before last I won the Grand Prize drawing in Melissa of Happy Quilting's Tetris Sew Along Challenge.  With that gift certificate from Intrepid Threads I got some lovely Amy Butler prints. I'm using those fabrics and some black on white prints for background to make my quilt in the Goodnight Irene Sew Along hosted by Terry of Terry's Treasures. Pictured are the first two rows.


And here is a close up. (Sorry. Night pictures.) Because I want to make my quilt to fit a twin bed, I'll make at least 10 blocks each month.
