Bloggers Quilt Festival –  Long Time Gone Finished!

Finished!  It always feels so good to have a quilt quilted and bound.  Yea!    This quilt is now truly a “Long Time Gone” Quilt.  I am excited to be linking it up with Amy’s Creative Side online Quilt Festival.  

This quilt is made from the Long Time Gone Quilt pattern by Jen Kingwell.  You can buy the pattern online.


Each of the blocks was a lesson in color and tiny piecing.   Here are a few of my favorite blocks:


I loved the little churn dash blocks. Each little churn dash is about 3″!

 
I don’t know why, but these diamonds just seem to tickle my fancy.  They look kind of renaissance  -ish.


My favorite blocks by far were the pineapples.  I loved piecing them with the little 1″ strips. And I love the look of them.  So fun!

I had such a good time sewing along with Gnome Angel and all of my online adventure quilters.  But my favorite was sewing along with my quilting friend, Cindy.  

We enjoyed comparing techniques and finished quilting results.  Don’t we look happy holding up our finished quilts?!


It’s time to roll this quilt up and put it in the quilt cabinet.  I am saving this one to give to a grandchild someday.  It may be a Long Time before it finds it’s final home.  I will enjoy looking at it until then!

Thank you for dropping by.  If you are visiting from the Quilt Festival, please leave a comment so I can go and see your finished Quilt as well:)

  1. It’s a wonderful finish. I saw you and some others making it along the way, and it really turned out well. I like that you and your friend’s quilts are not identical.
