Weekend progress with Irene

I love it when I have a productive weekend!  In between shopping for tile and a vanity for our bathroom remodel (my hubby's summer project), I managed to make some more progress on my Good Night Irene quilt.  On Friday, I finished piecing the top:

Then on Saturday (after losing a bit a lot of sleep trying to figure out what to do with the back and what kind of quilting to do), I managed to get the back pieced and I love the way it turned out!

Next up, I put together some Franken-batting and made the binding (how cute is this 

Delighted Blue Floral by The Quilted Fish for Riley Blake?)

On Sunday, I managed to get it basted ~

and started the quilting.  So far, so good!

Linking up with Anything Goes Monday and Sew Cute Tuesday.


  1. I love the design of this quilt! I have made one similar and forgot just how beautiful it is!
    Love the bright colors and the quilting is awesome!

  6. I second the compliments on the straight-line quilting. I look forward to seeing this project completed!

  7. This quilt just shouts "HAPPY"! I also want to compliment those straight lines in your quilting. Nice work.

  8. Total bright beauty! I love the pattern and the backing could not be more perfect. The quilting design is uniquely simple but highlights the design. You are doing an unbelievably great job on the straight lines!!!

  10. Your basting looks unusual - are they special pins? The quilting turned out beautifully - even after washing.
