Goodnight Irene Continued

The wheels have fallen somewhat off of the wagon with blogging and quilting, due to visits by family and ninth birthday parties for young daughters, but I did have some time to slink away and sew.





Only the first row is pieced together, and I still need one more block to make it the length I need.  I also will be piecing a joined row of squares outside the outer edge as a border, hopefully that should frame it all nicely.  I have been trimming, pressing, stitching for hours now – trimming up half square triangles is a boring job really.

But the quilt itself is coming along.  And as I said, most of these offcuts were destined for the rubbish bin before I decided to do this quilt so that’s got to count for something!

I’d like to thank all my new followers for coming onboard – I hope to visit all your blogs and have already scheduled tomorrow in as a blog and sewing day (rather than boring old housework).  I’m so enjoying the Grow Your Blog party!

Till tomorrow,
