Week 7 | Long Time Gone Sew-along | Churn Dashes

Welcome to week seven of the Long Time Gone Sew-along. Things are going to be short and sweet this week. My original post for this week was already to go and then somehow disappeared into cyberspace.  But here I am and sorry for the delay. We are taking on the adorable churn dashes this week and whether you decide to fussy cut or not they are bound to be cute!

 I went on a bit of a crazy fussy cut journey with mine and am loving the effect! It's amazing what you can do with some solids and only two prints!

Week 6 | Long Time Gone Sew-along | Plus a Star Block

Hello, hello! We are back this week with a block that I definitely struggled with. My OCD was all over the place with this one but in the end I'm so happy with it. We're working this week on the Plus a Star block!

This is an easy one to put together but requires a bit of planning in advance. If you have a design wall it will definitely come in handy, if not make use of your bed, couch, floor, bust out the refrigerator magnets... you get the idea! Are we ready to get this one done? Let's go!

Week 5 | Long Time Gone Sew-along | Trip Around the World Block

Time is just flying by! We're already into week five of the Long Time Gone Sew-along! How did that happen?! Today's block is a fun one to plan if a little bit fiddly to put together. Say hello to the Trip Around the World block!

I had my mind set from the jump that this one would be blue, but there were quite a few changes made along the way. And a lot of fabric cut and not used. But all totally worth it! So, are we all ready to get going?!

A Dapper Gridlock

Things are looking quite dapper around here if I do say so myself! I finished up this quilt top recently and wanted to share. It's still in flimsy form as it's for my little sis for her birthday today and I thought I'd let her pick the backing fabric for it. I'm nice like that, haha!

I started with some prints from Tim Holtz's newest line, Dapper and added in some favourites, from all of his previous lines I think. And they play so nicely together!

Week 4 | Long Time Gone Sew-along | Jacobs Ladder Block

Welcome back everyone for another fun block! This one just might be my favourite so far!
We are going to be taking on the Jacobs Ladder Block today and there are endless possibilities for fabric and layout options!

Mine has a bit of a fireworks kind of feel to it doesn't it? I love it! Okay, are you all ready to make your Jacobs Ladder block?
