Goodnight Irene

Earlier this year I came across Terry's blog and she was hosting a sew-along to make a quilt using Goodnight Irene blocks.  Terry was making her quilt using blue/green batiks and I remembered I had a Tonga Treat pack in my stash called "Pink Lemonade", beautiful oranges, yellows, pinks and some fuschia.

The quilt top was finished in March and joined the pile of quiltops to be quilted.  My quilting frame was dismantled after the flood and moved to the garage.  It's still not re-assembled, so when my friend, Karen, bought herself a long-arm quilting machine, I gave this to her to quilt for me (along with a few others).  Karen quilted 8 quilts for me in two weeks so I have lots of binding ahead of me.





This is the first time I've used Batik fabrics and I love the colours in this quilt.  So glad I found Terry's blog.
