Goodnight Irene

I wasn't going to start anything new this year, besides my item once a month for Christmas, but i'd been admiring Terry's quilt & succumbed.
My first 2 rows. I nearly gave up yesterday. I had the 2nd row altogether & had sewn it to the first, started to press it & realised something wasn't right. Yep i'd sewn the cross blocks together wrong. Some reverse sewing & all fixed. Terry is running this as a QAL.

Happy Stitching,

It's a small quilt...it won't take up too much of your time! LOL And you're not the only person to sew up their X-blocks the wrong way. You're in good company! LOL

Your GNI Blocks look really great..
I will confess I sewed my back to front too but lucky for me I hadn't sewn them together..

Lots of nice projects for FnwFs too.

I love your fabric choices! I'm glad you joined the QAL, the more the merrier and this is a fun one. I love seeing everyone's blocks.
