Still Working on Irene

This is the quilt I started with Terry at the beginning of the year.  It has been languishing in my UFO bin all summer.  So now that summer is over I decided to finish it.  Oh, yeah and also because Terry is starting a new sew along.  I showed you a few of the blocks from that one last time, but I thought I should finish Goodnight Irene before I make any more Charming Star blocks.


I know this is not a good photo.  The top is just sitting on my design floor.  And the sun is shining into my living room.  It's going to be a hot day today.  Did I tell you my AC is not working?  Well, it's not.  I have all the fans going and I hope my house will not be too hot by the end of the day.  I only have one more row to go on Goodnight Irene.  And then just the borders to do.  So I am sitting in front of a fan and sewing like crazy.  I hope to have this done by tomorrow.

I love the colors, Hetty. That is a really stunning quilt top. I hate that you are so hot. No AC... I'd die. I just know I would.

So pretty, Hetty! I'm still working on Irene, too. I've machine quilted the 16 patches and am almost finished with the little wings. Haven't decided just what to do in the Xs, though.
