Long Time Gone Quilt — Almost Done!!

Good Monday morning!  I am back from a few days at the cabin for a family reunion.  It was so nice to spend time with family in the cooler weather of Northern Arizona:)

Now that I am back, I have had time to finish the checkerboard blocks for my Long Time Gone Quilt. They were so quick and fun to make!   I loved using my leftover scraps to whip them out:)

I listened to a book as I sewed and chain pieced away:).  It is kind of therapeutic to sew and listen to a book.  It is one of life’s greatest pleasures!


My handy Cutting Gizmo made light work of cutting apart the chains. 


Ah, the beauty of a finished section:)!


I stacked all of my finished blocks together and just looked at them with a happy smile on my face:) :). I just love neatly stacked quilting blocks, don’t you?


And here they are laid out in no particular order.  They are ready to be sewn together this week.  I can’t believe it!  This quilt is almost done.  It is soon to be Long Time Gone….

This quilt is made from the Long Time Gone Quilt pattern by Jen Kingwell.  I am using a mix of Cotton and Steele fabrics and fabrics from my stash.  Sewing along with the Gnome Angel sew along has kept me on a schedule that has really helped.

I hope your day is a SWEET one filled with people you love and time for a creative adventure or two!
