 And the book of the year award goes to..........  *drumroll for effect*..............

And the crowd goes wild!! It's Fussy Cutters Club by Angie Wilson!!! Woooo! Yeah!! Wahoo!
Wait, what? This isn't a book awards ceremony? It's a book review? Oooh, okay I get it.

...But if it was an awards ceremony Angie's book would totally have won. Just sayin'.

Week 17 | Long Time Gone Sew-along | Checkerboard Blocks

Can you believe how far we've already made it in the Long Time Gone Sew-along?!! We're almost at the finish line!! Wahoo!! This week is simple, which is always a nice way to send a sew-along, don't you think? :)

For our final blocks we're whipping up some easy peasy checkerboard blocks! I've made mine using two different techniques that work to use up small stash as well as mixing in some fabrics you may have already used in previous blocks! Shall we get started?

Week 16 | Long Time Gone Sew-along | Amnesty Week!!

Welcome to week 16 of the Long Time Gone Sew-along! This week is amnesty week! And thank goodness for it, I am so far behind, hahaha!

So occasionally life happens, and you find yourself slowly falling behind on things. We're here this week to let you know that if one of those things you've fallen behind on is your LTG blocks then now's your chance to get caught up again!

Week 13 | Long Time Gone Sew-along | Flying Geese

We're getting so close to the finish!! Is everyone loving their blocks so far?! I know I am and I can't wait to start assembling the top! Today we're working on Flying Geese, one of my all time favourite blocks.

So many ways to play with geese! The colours in this one may be a little more than what I'm looking for in my quilt, haha. I haven't put it up with the rest of the blocks yet so we'll see!

Week 12 | Long Time Gone Sew-along | Half Square Triangles - block 3

This is it folks! The last HST block for the Long Time Gone Sew-along! Wahoo!! 

This is another that I made before the rest of the blocks and while I love it I'm not sure how well it works with all the rest of my blocks. For now though it stays, and I'll re-evaluate when they are all finished! So with that shall we get on with the tutorial?!

Week 11 | Long Time Gone Sew-along | Half Square Triangles - block 2

We are back again this week with another HST block! This block is one of my favourites and I would love to make a whole quilt out of just this block and this colour palette!

So good! I actually made this block as soon as my pattern showed up! It was the first block I made from this pattern and I had planned on sticking mostly with this colour palette, until FreeSpirit sent me Anna Maria Horner's Mod Corsage line and the bundle of solids I picked out. Then I knew that I wanted to use a more vibrant colour palette! I think I've successfully accomplished that, haha! So this one may end up in the quilt, it may end up getting a couple more borders and being a pillow! We'll see!
