2014 RSC June Yellow Week 2 and Goodnight Irene Quilt Finished
After playing with yellow scraps this week, I'll add four scrappy happy houses, three 6.5" sampler midgets and a cotton knitted dishcloth to my collections. This dishcloth was knitted using leftover yarns, three colors.
To see what others made with their yellow scraps, go here Saturday morning.
I finished Goodnight Irene this week and I'm pleased with how it turned out.
In an attempt to use all my Amy Butler "Cameo" fatquarter bundle, I pieced scraps into the backing and a scrappy binding.
This close up shows the scrappy binding. The quilt is quilted with a loose free motion meander and white cotton thread. After a go in the washer and dryer it finished at 68" x 82". There was a lot of shrinkage. It's a wedding gift for a grandson and his finance. Their wedding is in two weeks. Goodnight Irene is currently making it's way to California via UPS.
