Long Time Gone – Log Cabin and Half Square Triangle Blocks

I have been having so much fun with this quilt along by Gnome Angel.  We are sewing the Jen Kingwell Long Time Quilt.  I like sewing  with these bright colors and fun blocks.  Her style just hits the mark with me!

 Last week I had fun cutting small strips and sewing them back together into diagonal log cabin blocks.

It is interesting how she used different widths of fabric to add interest and movement to the block.  I made four of these cute blocks:)


Next I sewed up about 100 half square triangles. I like to sew them a little larger than called for and trim them down to size.  That way they are always perfect!

Don’t they look pretty?

I sewed these little squares into three different blocks.  The first was just 5 rows of straight half square triangles all going the same direction.  Cute!

The next block had a larger square in the middle and the half squares arranged in different directions.

The final block was a type of trip around the world block.  This one was my favorite:)

I am looking forward to the rest of this quilt. It is so totally SWEET!!

Thank you for dropping by:)

  1. Yay Jen Kingwell, she spoke at our Sisters Quilters Guild meeting last year, she is very awesome! She also did some classes in Central Oregon but I missed out on taking the class, at least I got to see her mind blowing trunk show. Your colors/fabrics are wonderful!
