2014 Finish-A-Long ~ Third 3rd Quarter Finish

Can it be?  Another finish?  Why yes ~ yes it is ~ one more finish for my Q3 list.  This is my Good Night Irene quilt that I started back in February for Terry's quilt-along.  I missed all the deadlines for prizes, but I think this quilt is a prize in itself!  I love love it.  :)




(I really need to find a more creative way to take photos of my finishes ~ this closet door just isn't getting it!)

Here's a closer look at the quilting ~


and a roll-up shot :)


I love the straight line quilting I went with ~ the grid pattern it makes on the sashing looks really interesting while not overpowering the blocks.  

Quilt:   Good Night Irene 
Size:      Approx. 50" x 50"
Fabrics:  Delighted by Quilted Fish for Riley Blake
Batting:  Warm and White
Thread:  Aurifil 50 wt
Pieced and quilted by me!

Linking up with Finish It Up Friday and TGIFF!

  7. I agree with you, I like the quilting on the white, especially because some lines are close and some not, it's very effective yet also doesn't over power the colorful blocks :)

  11. The straight-line quilting is a perfect fit. The contrast between the background and the prints is quite striking. Congrats on a beautiful finish.

  18. Hi. I had to stop by to see your GI quilt after you mentioned it on my blog, QuilterinMotion. I love your colors and the combinations really work together and still look scrappy somewhat. Your quilting is beautiful and I wish I could do something similar but I'm going to have to go simple with a quilt that's 100+x100+ inches. I'll be lucky to get it in the throat of my domestic machine!!
