Long Time Gone Quilt-Pineapple Block Love

I have been absolutely LOVING this Long Time Gone Quilt designed by Jen Kingwell!  It is so fun to try my hand at her fun color combinations:). I am glad that Gnome Angel organized this SAL.  Having the deadlines really keeps me motivated:)

I have two weeks worth of sewing to share with you today.  The first set of blocks was the 60 degree triangles.

These went together very quickly.  I like how they look kind of like an argyle sock or a diamond  pattern when they are all put together:). 

Fun, fun, fun!  The next set of 16 blocks took quite a bit longer.

They took longer, but my oh my I LOVE them!!!  I have never made a full pineapple block before. It was a test of patience in sewing around, cutting, and then sewing around again.

I didn’t mind though.  I just sat and sewed away while listening to a book.  I am listening to “What is the What” by Dave Eggers.  It is a very good read and helped the time to just fly by.

Look at how cute these blocks look all put together!  They are my favorite block by far:)

I like them so much that I may design a quilt myself with a bunch of them…. we’ll see.

I hope you are having a SWEET day!  Thank you for dropping by and following my quilting adventure:)

  1. I really luv them….but….what, again, is the size of these beauties??? I’ve not done a pineapple (for many reasons!) and don’t have a real desire (I don’t think! LOL!) BUT yours are wonderful! I, also, really like the first set(s). This is really going to be an awesome piecing!!!

      1. Wow! What an itty bitty size! Since I piece so that I have a quilt to stitch (my preference…no surprise…… I haven’t ventured into the smaller realm, as so many have of late!! I think I’ll be quite content to follow in the shadows…….LOL!

  2. That IS a great colour mix, and I can see why you’re excited and happy to be working on this quilt 🙂 There’s nothing quite so satisfying as sitting, sewing and listening to a book, is there? You’re entertained two ways, you get things done and you get informed at the same time! Win, win.

      1. Funny! I could name my quilts after pieces of classical music, which I also listen to a lot while I’m sewing: The 1812 Overture quilt, the Four Seasons quilt, the Water Music quilt, the Enigma Variations quilt…. Lots of pieces are just the right length for a sewing session 🙂


  3. I think you could take this block alone and frame it. It is so happy and bright. I forget, are these fabrics coming from your stash, or are they coming as part of the QAL? Beautiful job piecing by the way!

  4. I didn’t realize these were such tiny blocks, since I always make mine 12″. They are great together, though.
